Comprise 23 papers first presented at a conference held in Taiwan, August-September 1992 (sponsored by the U. of Washington and National Taiwan University). Arranged chronologically, they cover historical periods ranging from the third century B.C. to A.D. 1900 and reflect the disciplines of history, literature, religious studies, and philosophy. Collectively, they find that although an image of rulership as an ideal persisted throughout Chinese history, there is a great discrepancy between the image of the Chinese ruler as an all- powerful benevolent, sovereign figure, and the actual practice of this rulership. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
