Although the conference was held in 1992, the work stands as the best single-volume history of European Sinology available, with reviews of the contributions of pioneers in the field from many countries, including Henri Maspero and Paul Demieville in France, the Italian Jesuits, Schlegel and Duyvendak of the Dutch Replubic, V.M. Alekseev of Russia, Siren and Karlgren of Sweden, and others. Additional articles review the history of China studies in specialized fields, including art, literature, Tun-Huang studies, Taoist studies, and so on. The book shows Sinology in Europe to be a rich tapestry of research initiated by various countries, institutions, and individuals, and is fascinating reading for anyone interested in Chinese studies.
