Summary
By comparing the role and influence of Christian missionaries in the early twentieth century with those of Christian NGOs today, Civilizing Missions critically assesses the idea of a Christian 'civilizing mission' within the context of China. It provides a local, non-Han perspective based on a rich array of historical, ethnographical, and empirical sources
