Many scholars visited the Cambria Press booth because of all the excitement surrounding the Cambria Sinophone World Series headed up by Professor Victor H. Mair. All who came to find out more about the series had nothing but the highest praise for Professor Mair because of his massive contributions to the field. Those who had not met him before but had read all his work were hoping to meet him. Unfortunately, Professor Mair was extremely busy at this conference, but we did manage to at least get a photo of him at the Cambria Press booth with his book, Sacred Display: Divine and Magical Female Figures of Eurasia, which he coauthored with Dr. Miriam Robbins Dexter.
The Journal of World History states that this fascinating book “illustrates well the powerful synergies that are so often generated within world history scholarship by collaboration between specialists in different regions and different scholarly disciplines … The range of figures and myths surveyed is very broad … learned a lot from this book’s extensive catalogue of such figures … What is important about this book is the extensive evidence it presents for their pervasiveness.”
An interview with Professor Mair regarding the Cambria Sinophone World Series will be posted shortly, so stay tuned!
