History in Three Keys
The Boxers as Event, Experience, and MythBook - 1997
From the publisher's description: "Historical reconstruction is in constant tension with two other more pervasive and influential way of 'knowing' the past -- experience and myth. In this long-awaited book, Paul Cohen uses the Boxer uprising of 1898-1900 -- a major antiforeign explosion and watershed event in Chinese history -- as a vehicle of the skillful illumination of these tensions."
