"A Little Journey in Java," pg. 31. A volume of facsimiles of original articles from nineteenth and early twentieth century Harper's magazines focuses on visitors' accounts of the scenes and customs of the Old World. Fitzgerald traces what it meant for southern Chinese people to be incorporated into the empire. The imperial court pushed its standards, its religions, its family values, and its taxes down the villagers' throats. The account captures both the devoted cultural imperialism of court emissaries, and the eclectic local resistance.

Covers pre through post Civil War years. Though I enjoy the many illustrations contained in these volumes, the "Editor's Easy Chair, Literary Notices, and Monthly Record of Current Events are great reads!
