new ge zhaoguang book
Ge Zhaoguang may just be the most brilliant Chinese of his generation,
and this work is nicely situated in what he's been doing for years at
his Institute for Advanced Studies at Fudan: placing China in Asia.
Because he's got money, he's brought scholars who work with Kanji texts
from Korea, Japan, Vietnam, etc.--and other scholars from around the
world. He's also a really nice guy. On both front (smart, nice), way
better to work worth than, say, Wang Hui. Ben Elman is close to him. I'd
love to involve him somehow in our work.
