By calling attention to the human costs of China's Taiping War, What Remains offers new perspectives on issues of abiding interest to historians of 19th and 20th century China: the effects of lingering dynastic decline, the effects of violence on local communities, the emergence of elite activism, and the changing relationship between state and society."Tobie Meyer-Fong's What Remains is a rich and original work that adopts the perspective of individuals who experienced and survived the cataclysmic uprising, which lasted for more than a decade. Drawn from a wide and deep reading of contemporary sources, it is a close examination of what it was like to live through the Taiping conflict....The book, packed with vivifying details, effectively captures an intensely experienced world, and weaves in many large themes."
