Congratulations to AHA member Litian Swen (City Univ. of New York), who recently published his first book, Jesuit Mission and Submission: Qing Rulership and the Fate of Christianity in China, 1644-1735 (Brill, 2021). In his book, Swen “explains how the Jesuits entered the Manchu world after the Manchus conquered Beijing in 1644” and “redefines the rise and fall of the Christian mission in the early Qing court through key events.”
