  title={Biographical dictionary of Chinese women : the Qing Period, 1644-1911},
  author={Norman Smith and Clara Bik-San Lau and A. D. Stefanowska},
This new volume of the Biographical Dictionary of Chinese Women spans more than 2,000 years from antiquity to the early seventh century. It recovers the stories of more than 200 women, nearly all of them unknown in the West. The contributors have sifted carefully through the available sources, from the oracle bones to the earliest legends, from Liu Xiang's didactic Biographies to official and unofficial histories, for glimpses and insights into the lives of women.
