产品描述

At the turn of the 20th century, women represented over half of the American foreign mission force and had settled in “heathen” China to preach the lessons of Christian domesticity. Historian Jane Hunter examines diaries, reminiscences, and letters to recreate the backgrounds of the missionaries and the travails and successes they found in China. She offers insights not only into the experiences of these women but also into the ways they mirrored the female culture of Victorian-era America.

“A triumph of sophisticated subtle intelligence. Though quite cognizant of the dark side of the confluence of American nationalism and the missionary enterprise, Hunter’s interest is in moving beyond that understanding to explore how the meeting of two cultures affected, and was shaped by, a female angle of vision.”
