Ricardo K.S. Mak, The future of the non-Western World in the social sciences in 19th century England 

Frankfurt am Main; New York : Peter Lang, 1999
ISBN 0820436194

This book investigates what 19th century political economists, social evolutionists, anthropologists and new liberals, on whom modern development theorists draw heavily, and whom modern underdevelopment theorists attack mercilessly, had to say about the future of the non-Western World. Principally this book examines how these great minds of the 19th century addressed the following questions:- Can non-Western nations since the 18th century? - Are the interactions between Western nations and non-Western nations obstacles or moving forces to the development of the latter? - Can the experience of Western nations serve as a guideline by means of which the non-Western nations can escape from stagnation? This book concludes that the 19th century social scientists' position laid closer to the underdevelopment theorists than to the development theorists.

劉詠聰:《德.才.色.權:論中國古代女性》

臺北:麥田出版股份有限公司,1998年
ISBN 9577086195

本書收錄論文九篇:(1)〈先秦時期之「女禍」〉觀;(2)〈漢代之婦人災異論〉;(3)〈漢代「婦人言色亡國」論之發展 ——「女禍」觀念形成的一個層面〉;(4)〈漢人對太后攝政之議論〉;(5)〈魏晉以還史家對后妃主政之負面評價〉;(6)〈中國傳統才德觀及清代前期女性才德論〉;(7)〈清代前期關於女性應否有「才」之討論〉;(8)〈清代前期女性才命觀管窺〉;(9)〈《奩史》初探 —— 兼論類書中女性史料之輯錄〉。著者在〈自序〉中說,「德」、「才」、「色」、「權」四個字,基本上涵蓋了本書各文的幾個重點論題,主要包括古人對婦人才德、才命、才色諸問題持的不同意見,以及歷史上「女禍」觀念的緣起和發展。明代葉紹袁提出婦人三不朽的見解,「德」、「才」、「色」的先後本末關係,足以代表傳統社會的價值觀念;著者在三不朽之後加上「權」,使居末席,因為傳統社會不提倡婦人追求「權」,按理應該放在最後。

Stephanie Po-yin Chung, Chinese Business Groups in Hong Kong and Political Changes in South China, 1900-1925 

London : Macmillan, 1998; New York : St. Martin's, 1998
ISBN 96024402

By the 1910s and 1920s, merchants were doing business in a politically fragmented China. With no central government to provide institutional protection, investors had to set up their own institutions to enable them to conduct business. To cultivate networks with political partons in China, competing merchant groups in Hong Kong sought to finance the regional government in Guangdong in return for financial concessions. Colonial Hong Kong made these attempts possible because it offered these merchants legislative and diplomatic protection and, therefore, a haven to which they could retreat. This development highlighted a fundamental shift in the relationship between the state and merchants in modern China. Chinese merchants, different from their counterparts in Europe, remained dependent on the political authorities, as commercial endeavours were in need of political patronage to survive and to prosper. This patronage system made commercial endeavours dependent on political authority and, significantly, it embedded business in politics-a phenomenon that still exists in China today.
