Abstract

156 China Review International: Vol. 24, No. 2, 2017 utopian imagination. Any knowledge production, however, should be separated from the issue of truth. Marxism, after all, is itself is a historical development. Yiju Huang Yiju Huang is assistant professor of Chinese and Comparative Literature at Fordham University, specializing in modern and contemporary Chinese literature. NOTE 1. Yu Zhang and Calvin Hui, Postsocialism and Its Narratives: An Interview with Cai Xiang, MCLC Resource Center (June 2018), available at: http://u.osu.edu/mclc/online-series/ zhang-hui/ Victor Cunrui Xiong. Capital Cities and Urban Form in Pre-modern China: Luoyang, 1038 BCE to 938 CE. London: Routledge, 2017. viii, 299 pp. Hardcover $170.00, ISBN 978-1-138-64814-2. Recent publications show that scholars in the China field pay growing attention to China’s second or third-tier cities, especially those that form the heartland of Chinese civilization. The book under review, by Victor Cunrui Xiong, a highly prolific historian of early and medieval China, also ventures beyond metropolises such as Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, and Guangzhou that offer foreign scholars fewer obstacles and well-established background knowledge. With a nod to Rome, Italy and to other Chinese cities, Xiong’s historical study focuses on Luoyang from 1038 B.C.E.to 938 C.E.—the imperial and divine capital of thirteen
