Abstract

Across various epochs of Chinese history, eunuchs held considerable political power and control over the state. During the late Qing, however, at a time when China came to be regarded as the ‘Sick man of Asia’ and as a ‘castrated civilization’, the figure of the eunuch became synonymous with ideas of backwardness, oppression and national shame. While many studies of Chinese eunuchs have tended to center on questions of their political life and institutional power, After Eunuchs, written by Howard Chiang, takes a very different approach.
