Cambria Press Author David Schneider at the 2013 Asian Studies Association (AAS) Annual Conference in San Diego

Cambria Press enjoyed an enormously successful conference at the 2013 AAS annual conference, especially for the Cambria Sinophone World Series. It was incredible that not one but two authors whose books are in the series were present for the Cambria Sinophone World Series reception. The first author was David K. Schneider whose book Confucian Prophet:  Political Thought In Du Fu’s Poetry (752–757) was recently published. The book has been praised by eminent scholar Jonathan Chaves as “the best study of a single Chinese poet I have seen in decades. And the best study of Du Fu known to me.” Professor Chaves further adds that “the author writes eloquently and clearly, and is a very fine translator indeed, and  gives us some of the very finest translations of Du Fu we now possess.”

Glowing Cambria Press Book Review! The Lyrical Resonance Between Chinese Poets and Painters commended by the Journal of Asian Studies!

Cambria Press congratulates Professor Daan Pan on the glowing review of The Lyrical Resonance Between Chinese Poets and Painters: The Tradition and Poetics of Tihuashi by the Journal of Asian Studies.

The review states that the book is “an extremely rewarding read,even an eye-opening one … Pan’s excellent translations of numerous tihuashi (poems written on paintings), along with his incisive and nuanced commentary, show us that painting occupied a central role in literaticulture, and was at times even instrumental in that culture’s development … The depth of insight that this book provides into the increasingly complex interrelations between the “Three Absolutes” (sanjue: poetry, painting, and calligraphy), especially between the first two, far surpasses any previous English-language study of the subject.”

This book can be seen at the Cambria Press booth at the next Asian Studies Association (AAS) conference in San Diego in March.
