Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Just a Scholar: The Memoirs of Zhou Yiliang (1913-2001) presents the table of contents, translator's note and the introduction. Zhou Yiliang was one of the great Chinese scholars of the twentieth century, and his life experiences were deeply affected by many of the major events of that terrible century, though he escaped the war with Japan. Born into a wealthy family, his father initially saw to his education with a range of tutors who, among other things, enabled Zhou to attain a capacity to speak English and Japanese with effectively native fluency, all the while mastering a basically traditional curriculum well after the civil service examinations ceased to exist. He died in 2001 at the age of eighty-eight. The book is an extremely brief summary based on his autobiography.

Keywords: Chinese scholar; civil service examinations; Japan; Zhou Yiliang
