Abstract

summarizes the Journals, in which Ricci (1552­1610) recorded his travels to Beijing in 1600. In his journals he describes the "rites and superstitions" that he observed, which Littlejohn identifies as Daoist. One of the volume's essays is meant specifically for educators. Shudong Chen considers the novel pedagogical recommendations of Zhuangzi and suggests Daoist strategies for education involving a "spiritual ecology" along with natural ecology or nature as a way of diversifying pedagogy. These essays are illustrative of the diversity of topics and approaches represented in this volume. Each essay is well researched and provides an excellent bibliography for those with interest in the topic. The common theme of interaction runs through each essay, and this can be jarring as we move into disciplines unfamiliar to us. Japanese popular culture, the experience of Indian aesthetics, art therapy in South Korea, Hindu-Muslim experiences in South Asia, feminist theory and footbinding, North Korea's nuclear threat, and the modern history of Bhutan as a contested space are all included as topics. Representing a variety of disciplines and approaches, this book will be helpful to Asia specialists as well as those seeking topical introductions to the region. While readers are sure to find
