Emma Woodhouse ist gutherzig, kapriziös, verwöhnt, auch ein wenig arrogant, aber bei allen Mängeln sympathisch, meint sie in ihrer Umgebung Vorsehung spielen zu müssen und versucht, wie es ihr die Phantasie gerade eingibt, ihre männlichen und weiblichen Bekannten miteinander zu verheiraten. Das geht natürlich ständig schief, und es gelingt ihr auf diese Weise, das stille, eintönige Highbury gründlich durcheinanderzuwirbeln. Schließlich kommt auch sie, die nie heiraten wollte, zu Vernunft und Ehemann.

"The Decolonial Imaginary is a smart, challenging book that disrupts a great deal of what we think we know... it will certainly be read seriously in Chicano/a studies." —Women's Review of Books Emma Pérez discusses the historical methodology which has created Chicano history and argues that the historical narrative has often omitted gender. She poses a theory which rejects the colonizer's methodological assumptions and examines new tools for uncovering the hidden voices of Chicanas who have been relegated to silence.

Until 300 years ago, the Chinese considered Taiwan a "land beyond the seas," a "ball of mud" inhabited by "naked and tattooed savages." The incorporation of this island into the Qing empire in the seventeenth century and its evolution into a province by the late nineteenth century involved not only a reconsideration of imperial geography but also a reconceptualization of the Chinese domain. The annexation of Taiwan was only one incident in the much larger phenomenon of Qing expansionism into frontier areas that resulted in a doubling of the area controlled from Beijing and the creation of a multi-ethnic polity. The author argues that travelers' accounts and pictures of frontiers such as Taiwan led to a change in the imagined geography of the empire. In representing distant lands and ethnically diverse peoples of the frontiers to audiences in China proper, these works transformed places once considered non-Chinese into familiar parts of the empire and thereby helped to naturalize Qing expansionism. By viewing Taiwan-China relations as a product of the history of Qing expansionism, the author contributes to our understanding of current political events in the region.
