Reviews

"...an interesting and multi-layered study of the book of Mencius. Birdwhistell carefully teases out, and then proceeds to examine in some detail, the various elements of the feminine that shape Mencius' philosophical and political views. To date, hers is the most thorough and in-depth treatment of the inherent, but subterranean, feminism in Mencius' views." -- Dao

"...most valuable for those who engage in the discourse on care ethics that take maternal thinking as paradigmatic." -- Journal of Chinese Religions

"...[a] noteworthy contribution to our understanding of Mencius." -- Religious Studies Review

"This is the first serious reading of the Mencius from a feminist perspective, opening up a new dimension in Mencius studies." -- Chenyang Li, author of The Tao Encounters the West: Explorations in Comparative Philosophy
