Abstract

In this book Ronald Suleski introduces a new category of source material, ''chaoben'' 抄本, for understanding the lives of China’s semi-literate masses before 1950. It links the documents now flooding the antiques markets in China, with the hopes and fears of China’s people at the end of the pre-modern era.

Abstract

When China’s War of Resistance against Japan began in July 1937, it sparked an immediate health crisis throughout the country. In the end, China not only survived the war but also emerged from the trauma with a curious strength. Intimate Communities argues that women who worked as military and civilian nurses, doctors, and midwives during this turbulent period built the national community, one relationship at a time. In a country with a majority illiterate, agricultural population that could not relate to urban elites’ conceptualization of nationalism, these women used their work of healing to create emotional bonds with soldiers and civilians from across the country that transcended the divides of social class, region, gender, and language.
