A native of Shaoyang, Hunan, Prof. Max Xiaobing Tang was the top scorer in the arts stream in his province when he took the gaokao (national comprehensive university entrance exams) in 1980. With that distinction he went to Peking University as an English major and studied comparative literature. He then did his PhD in literary studies at Duke University in the US, concentrating on European and American literature, but wrote his dissertation on Liang Qichao (1873–1929), a major intellectual figure and a prolific writer in the final years of the Qing dynasty.
