Contents On the day of May the fourth: an alternative narrative of the 'May fourth' movement -- Literature from the perspective of intellectual history studies of New youth -- Esquiring into the meaning of the university : Cai Yuanpie as an educationist -- How to formulate knowledge: the vernacular writing of Zhang Taiyan -- The shaping of the canon: how the Zhou brothers and others edited Hu Shi's poems -- Writings in the margins of 'new culture': new discoveries from among heaps of old papers.
Summary Touches of History represents a groundbreaking attempt to return to a study of May Fourth that is solidly grounded in historical fact. Favouring smaller stories over grand narratives, concentrating on unknown, marginal materials rather than familiar key documents, and highlighting May Fourths indebtedness to the cultural debates of the preceding late Qing period, Chen Pingyuan reconstructs part of the actual historical scenery, demonstrating the great variety of ideas expressed during those tumultuous decades.
