The hardcover edition of the book was published by Routledge in May 2014. In October 2016, Dr. Fang also published an updated edition of the Chinese translation of Timothy Brook’s award-winning The Confusions of Pleasure: Commerce and Culture in Ming China. The first edition of the translation, simultaneously published in 2004 by Beijing’s Joint Publishing Company in simplified characters and Taipei’s Linking Publishing Company in complex characters, was considered one of the “Ten Best Books of the Year” in China and received numerous rave reviews from scholars at the both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
