    The Question of Hu (eBook)

    This lively and elegant book by the acclaimed historian Jonathan D. Spence reconstructs an extraordinary epsiode in the early intercourse between China and Europe. It is the story of John Hu, a lowly but devout Chinese Catholic who in 1722 accompanied a Jesuit missionary on a journey to France−a journey that ended with Hu's confinement in a lunatic asylum. At once a triumph of historical detective work and a gripping narrative, The Question of Hu deftly probes the collision of two cultures, with their different definitions of faith, madness, and moral obligation.
