520    In the early twentieth century, a good number of college-
       educated Protestant American women went abroad by taking 
       up missionary careers in teaching, nursing, and medicine. 
       Most often, their destination was China, which became a 
       major mission field for the U.S. Protestant missionary 
       movement as the United States emerged to become an 
       imperial power. These missionary women formed a cohort of 
       new women who sought to be liberated from traditional 
       gender roles. As educators and benevolent emancipators, 
       they attempted to transform Chinese women into self-
       sufficient middle-class professional women just like 
       themselves. As Motoe Sasaki shows in Redemption and 
       Revolution, these aspirations ran parallel to and were in 
       conflict with those of the Chinese xin nüxing (New Women) 
       they encountered.The subjectivity of the New Woman was an 
       element of global modernity expressing gendered visions of
       progress. At the same time it was closely intertwined with
       the view of historical progress in the nation. Though 
       American and Chinese New Women emphasized individual 
       autonomy in that each sought to act as historical agents 
       for modern progress, their notions of subjectivity were in
       different ways linked to the ideologies of historical 
       progress of their nations. Sasaki's transnational history 
       of these New Women explores the intersections of gender, 
       modernity, and national identity within the politics of 
       world history, where the nation-state increased its 
       presence as a universal unit in an ever-interconnecting 
       global context.
