Summary
David Strand argues that the Chinese revolution of 1911 engendered a new political life, one that began to free men and women from the inequality and hierarchy the formed the spine of China's social and cultural order. Chinese citizens confronted their leaders and each other face-to-face in a stance familiar to republics worldwide. This shift in political posture was accompanied by considerable trepidation as well as excitement. Profiling three prominent political actors of the time -- suffragist Tang Qunying, diplomat Lu Zhengxiang, and revolutionary Sun Yatsen -- Strand demonstrates how a sea change in political performance left leaders dependent on popular support and citizens enmeshed in a political process productive of both authority and dissent
