Book Details

Title:Yang and Yin
Hobart, Alice Tisdale   
(4 of 4 for author by title)
The Peacock Sheds His Tail
Published:   1936
Publisher:The Bobbs-Merrill Company
Tags:fiction, China, culture

This novel is considered by some to be the best fictional account of an American Protestant medical missionary placed in China during the first quarter of the twentieth century. The main point of view of Yang and Yin is the rigid theology of the Christian mission, which is highly misdirected and counterproductive. Yang and Yin studies the effect of cultural contact in the area of ideas; central characters are an American doctor and his protegé, a young Chinese aristocrat. The chasm between the two cultures is also dramatized by other characters, particularly the women. [Suggest a different description.]
