An in-depth analysis of how Chinese school textbooks published between 1902 and 1937 shaped new social, cultural, and political trends. Peter Zarrow examines how Chinese schools conveyed traditional and 'new style' knowledge and sought to socialize students in a rapidly changing society in the transformative first decades of the twentieth century.

'What textbooks say today generates heated debate from Tokyo to Texas. Zarrow's landmark study of textbooks in late imperial and early Republican China shows how and why they mattered a century ago for reimagining the people, the culture, the past and the future of China - an indispensable book for educators and historians of modern China.' John Fitzgerald, Swinburne University of Technology 'Peter Zarrow's groundbreaking study of Chinese textbooks critically analyzes their presentation of knowledge to students in late Qing and Republican China. Zarrow thoughtfully situates the texts in broad social and cultural currents, demonstrating how they reflected and influenced ongoing political and intellectual dynamics. This book is necessary reading for all students of modern Chinese history.' Robert J. Culp, Bard College "What textbooks say today generates heated debate from Tokyo to Texas.
