â¿¿Dorothy Ko's daring in taking on the difficult subject of footbinding has resulted in a tour-de-force. In Cinderella's Sisters she rises above nationalist, feminist, and Orientalist polemic to place footbinding clearly in the domain of the history of fashion. Her ingenious narrative strategyâ¿¿putting the modern story of foobinding's disappearance at the beginningâ¿¿sets up her historical account of its premodern heyday as a story of concealmentâ¿¿of hidden sources, hidden bodies, and hidden meanings. As illusion, footbinding reveals women's sisterhood in responses to being objects of desire.""â¿¿Charlotte Furth, author of A Flourishing Yin: Gender in China's Medical History: 960â¿¿1665 ""Cinderella's Sister's is the long-awaited, definitive work on Chinese footbinding in English.The work also plugs into current concerns with the history of the body and of fashion. But it also does much more: at every turn it tells us something new about late imperial and republican-era Chinese society and history. It is remarkably rich in fascinating detail. A great read.""â¿¿William T. Rowe, author of Saving the World: Chen Hongmou and Elite Consciousness in Eighteenth-Century China
