Still little has been published on narrative art in Asia, and much of this has a specific geographical orientation. This book should interest scholars of Asian art and culture, and scholars of narrative art more generally, fulfilling a clear need in teaching for less region-specific approaches. It can also be used as a textbook for courses on Asian art, specifically at the Master's level." — Marijke Klokke, Leiden University
"The topic is timely, some excellent scholars are involved. Naturally it is not feasible to cover all of Asia's varied traditions in a single text; this volume offers a preponderance of essays focusing on the art of the Han Chinese but also includes pieces engaging Southeast and South Asia, and cultures as far as Turkey and the Middle East. While discussions of visual narrative have been quite popular in journal articles, this is the only text I know of which attempts to take on Asian narratives as a whole." — Robert DeCaroli, George Mason University
