Self and Biography:
Essays on the Individual and Society in Asia
Wang Gungwu (ed)
A fascinating collection of papers from a wide range of academics looking at features of South, Southeast and East Asian biographies from early Buddhist times to the 20th century. The main stress in such biographies has not been so much to look at the individual and her/his private and public self but rather the public roles played by biographical subjects. Authors have been keen to stress the type, whether it be a model to be followed or despised. 217 pages with 21 black and white plates and an index
