City of Virtues:
Nanjing in an Age of Utopian Visions
by Chuck Wooldridge

Chuck Wooldridge is Assistant Professor of History at Lehman College.

Throughout Nanjing’s history, writers have claimed that its spectacular landscape of mountains and rivers imbued the city with royal qi, making it a place of great political significance.

City of Virtues examines the ways a series of visionaries - drawing on past glories of the city - projected their ideologies onto Nanjing as they constructed buildings, performed rituals, and reworked its literary heritage.  

This study shows how utopian visions of the cosmos shaped Nanjing’s path through the turbulent 19th century.
