Abstract

Reviews 93 different Chinese approaches to child welfare. Regardless of political orientation, state and civil society actors saw childhood and children as the key to a brighter national future but struggled with the question of “indigenization”: how could a “modern childhood” become a modern Chinese childhood? As Tillman points out in her conclusion, this question is still highly relevant today. Stig Thøgersen Stig Thøgersen is professor emeritus of China Studies at Aarhus University, specializing in Chinese history of education. Wai Ching Angela Wong and Patricia P. K. Chiu, editors. Christian Women in Chinese Society: The Anglican Story (Sheng Kung Hui: Historical Studies of Anglican Christianity in China). Hong Kong: Hong Kong University Press, 2018. xvi, 274 pp. Hardcover $60, ISBN 978-988-8455-92-8. Both in the past as well as in the present, women have played a crucial role for the life and development of the worldwide Church, not least the Chinese Church. The history of the Chinese Church, however, has rather focused on male contributions and many names of Chinese Christian women have been forgotten and even lost. Only in recent years has this started to change, and Christian Women in Chinese Society: The Anglican Story is yet another addition
