Pressestimmen

Works by Alexander Woodside are not merely to be read. They are to be studied. I have yet to read a book, essay, or review by him that did not deserve a second reading...Lost Modernities is no exception. This is history and historiography at its very best, leavened by humor and stunning breadth. -- Joshua A. Fogel Chinese Historical Review 20060901 This compact study is original and provocative. Its comparative approach is an inspiration to all who work on Asian states past and present. It confronts alternative modernities in new and sophisticated ways. And, not least, it is a contribution to the history of governance, notably on the need for, and the limits of, meritocratic principles in public management. -- Wang Gungwu Pacifica Affairs 20061201
