China Review International: Vol. 2, No. 1, Spring 2005 Joshua Fogel, editor. The Role of Japan in Liang Qichao's Introduction of Modern Western Civilization to China. China Research Monograph, no. 57. Berkeley: Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley, 2004. ix, 324 pp. 20.00, isbn 557290806. Among the outstanding personalities of modern China, Liang Qichao is surely one of the three most studied Chinese in American scholarship. Since the publication of Joseph Levenson's pioneering work in 953, at least three book-length monographs on Liang have been published. The reason why Liang should have so fascinated the English-speaking world is not difficult to understand. Political and cultural leaders of China during the first half of the twentieth century, including Lu Xun and Mao Zedong (the other two most studied figures), acknowledged Liang's powerful influence as they recalled reading Liang's impassioned writings in their youth. In the words of historians, Liang was "the mind of modern China" (Levenson) and a "paradigmatic thinker" (Xiaobing Tang), and his writings forged "an important intellectual link between the age-old tradition of Confucian practical statesmanship and the contemporary search for ideological reorientation" 1 (Hao Chang).
