Abstract

China Review International: Vol. 16, No. 3, 2009 Despite my reservations and criticisms, this is a work of tremendous scholarship, fieldwork, and insight. There is no comparable English-language book that breaks as much new ground or synthesizes as much previous research. It is to be recommended to anyone who seeks a better understanding of the late twentiethcentury poetic scene in China. Jack W. Chen Jack W. Chen is an assistant professor in the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures at UCLA with a specialization in medieval Chinese literature. His book, The Poetics of Sovereignty: On Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty, is forthcoming from the Harvard Asia Center. Donald B. Wagner. Science and Civilisation in China, Volume 5, Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Part 11, "Ferrous Metallurgy." Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2008. xxxiii, 477 pp. Hardcover $195.00, isbn 978-0-521-87566-0. Christopher Cullen, general editor of the Science and Civilisation in China series, found in the archives a note by Joseph Needham, apparently from 1981: "Donald Wagner @ Ostasiatika Institutet Copenhagen / v. keen on hist[ory] of i[ron] and s[teel] in [China] might collaborate."
