Reviews 395 Dong Wang. Managing God's Higher Learning: U.S.-China Cultural Encounter and Canton Christian College (Lingnan University), 18881952. Lanham, MD: Lexington Books, 2007. xii, 211 pp. Paperback $34.95, isbn 978-0-7391-1936-5. Christian higher education institutions were an integral part of China's higher education history between the last years of the nineteenth century and the midtwentieth century. For example, in the 1920s, sixteen colleges and universities were set up by Protestant churches in China. Enrolling nearly two thousand men and women, they accounted for approximately 12 percent of the student population at higher education institutions in China (Fenn 1980). As one of the sixteen institutions, Lingnan University has held an important position in China's higher education history. Studying the experiences of Christian higher education institutions in general and of Lingnan University in particular is of great significance for understanding China's educational history. Managing God's Higher Learning by Dong Wang is a case study of the history of Lingnan University between 1888, when it was first established, and 1952, when it merged with Sun Yat-sen University under the newly founded People's Republic of China. This merger ended the existence of Lingnan University in Canton. Lingnan College was restored in Hong Kong
