I am a Mao magpie and have recently acquired a palimpsesty object:
a 1954 PLA Condolence Handbook that was given to someone in Nanjing “分开了8年，今天相逢。叙述骨肉情” in April 1957. The book remained unused until 1964 when a diary was begun.
There are sporadic, often lengthy, entries from 1964.2.29 to 1966.11.17 covering 86 closely written pages. There is one entry dated 1970 and a final one in 1986, which may be associated with some very minor redactions on a few of the earlier pages.
I am pleased to announce the publication of the following volume:
The Hybridity of Buddhism: Contemporary Encounters between Tibetan and Chinese Traditions in Taiwan and the Mainland,
edited by Fabienne Jagou (Paris, EFEO 2018).
18.5x27.5 cm, 236 p., Ill., English
ISBN 978 2 85539 149 6 - 40€
