Tullet, Press Here, , https: Abbatiello, Facce, Topipittori, Qui dit texture, dit aussi aussi trou. La protection juridique des inventions dans les relations commerciales entre la France et la Chine. Princeton, , 18 tables, p. Although China's economy has grown spectacularly over the last twenty-five years, economists disagree about how the Chinese economy is likely to fare in the short- and long-term future.
Is China's growth sustainable, or has China relied too much on investment, which is subject to diminishing returns, and not enough on technological change? The first book on the relation between investment, finance, and growth in China, How China Grows dismisses this concern. James Riedel, Jing Jin, and Jian Gao argue that investment has not only been the engine of growth, but also the main source of technological progress and structural change in China. What threatens future growth instead, the authors argue, are the weaknesses of China's financial system that undermine efficiency in investment allocation.
Financial-sector reform and development are necessary, not only for sustaining long-term growth, but also for maintaining macroeconomic stability. Durham, , p. Drawing on her research over the past two decades among urban residents and rural migrants in Hangzhou and Beijing, Lisa Rofel analyzes the meanings that individuals attach to various public cultural phenomena and what their interpretations say about their understandings of post-socialist China and their roles within it.

In this book, Susan Shirk, a former U. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State responsible for China, opens up the black box of Chinese domestic politics and reveals a fragile communist regime struggling to survive in a society turned upside down by economic growth and open markets. She argues that the West's greatest danger is not China's economic or military strength but its internal fragility.
She makes the case that it is usually rising powers that provoke wars, and unless Western states understand the fears that motivate Chinese leaders, they are likely to misread and mishandle China - and find themselves in an avoidable international conflict. Paying for Progress in China is a collection of essays which trace the causes of these growing inequalities, using new data including surveys, interviews, newly available official statistics and in-depth fieldwork.

This study considers the institutional evolution and progress of village elections in China. This book studies the creation and evolution of democratic institution of village election. It examines the causes of village election, the making of state and provincial election legislation, state implementation and improvement of village election rules and procedures, and the role of domestic and foreign players in influencing electoral institutionalization of village self-governance, and it assesses the impact of village election on Chinese political development.
It argues for the institutional buildup of democratic infrastructures to ensure what could eventually be the beginning of a more extensive move towards democracy. Armonk, , bibliography, index, p. This book launches an ambitious reexamination of the elite politics behind one of the most remarkable transformations in the late twentieth century. As the first part of a new interpretation of the evolution of Chinese politics during the years , it provides a detailed study of the end of the Maoist era, demonstrating Mao's continuing dominance even as his ability to control events ebbed away.
The tensions within the gang of four, the different treatment of Zhou Enlai and Deng Xiaoping, and the largely unexamined role of younger radicals are analyzed to reveal a view of the dynamic of elite politics that is at odds with accepted scholarship. The authors draw upon newly available documentary sources and extensive interviews with Chinese participants and historians to develop their challenging interpretation of one of the most poorly understood periods in the history of the People's Republic of China.
Riveneuve, , p. S, , p. On a Slippery Roof. This second volume of Critical Zone consists of two parts. The first part includes original essays that deal with the concept and practice of "empire" as a collective response to the question of how imperial formations and operations, in the past and at present, should be examined in a larger context of international politics and how historical imperialism may be considered in relation to the conditions of our time.

A Geography of China. Piscataway, , over plates, maps, and diagrams, glossary, bibliography, index, p.
When this book was originally published in the s, China was beginning to change with breathtaking rapidity.
iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.
These changes are presented here against geographical and historical background. Knowledge of the environmental facts is essential to an appreciation of the political, economic, and social problems that have faced the Chinese people. The book has been arranged in four sections: Physical, Historical, Economic, and Regional. Such a treatment necessarily involves some repetition but this, in some ways, is an advantage as it serves to emphasize the fact that the sections are themselves very closely interlocked. No apology is needed for including a considerable historical geographical section.
The subjects treated under this heading are a few choice plums selected from a basketful of excellent fruit. No attempt has been made at a connected historical surveyor treatment. Courts and Criminal Justice in Contemporary China. This is a study of Chinese judicial power as it is manifested in law-and-order campaigns and shame punishment. Sue Trevaskes examines today's court practices and their antecedents in China by exploring "law on display" in local court trials, rallies, and campaigns.
By emphasizing the justice system of the s it becomes apparent how criminal court practices in this period set the foundation for practices into the Twenty-First Century. Trevaskes argues that many aspects of Chinese law, especially civil and economic law, have developed into modern and sophisticated systems of justice administration, criminal law has not.
Globalization facilitates China's emergence and places Taiwan economy under China's influence. Empirical data confirm that Taiwan's structural weakness compromises its autonomy. Sino-US economic interdependence confines the US from adopting any strategy to protect Taiwan's autonomy. China is the largest recipient of Taiwanese investment. Flow-on effects determine China's indispensability to Taiwan. Yet, in fear of losing its autonomy to China, Taiwan tries to control the cross-Strait economic exchanges but fails. As Taiwan seeks for independence but China insists on unification, the ideological fight between the two sides is a zero-sum game.
The US involvement maintains the cross-Strait status quo, but China's rise will disrupt the balance. Without political concessions, Taiwan will always live under the Chinese threat.
Chine brune ou Chine verte? Presse de Sciences Po, , p. Ce petit ouvrage fait le point des contraintes et des objectifs contradictoires auxquels doit aujourd'hui faire face l'Etat-parti au pouvoir en Chine. Stanford, Studies in Asian Security, , p. Why, since the s, has Beijing been feverishly developing means to prevail in combat with the U. Why is Taiwan worth fighting for? To answer, this book focuses on the territorial dimension of the Taiwan issue and highlights arguments made by PRC analysts about the geostrategic significance of Taiwan, rather than emphasizing the political dispute between Beijing and Taipei.
It considers Beijing's quest for Taiwan since against the backdrop of recurring Chinese anxieties about the island's status since the seventeenth century. In recent years, the PRC has become dependent on international maritime commerce and has undertaken to expand considerably its navy to ensure access to the sea. PRC analysts concerned about strategy have articulated rationales for eliminating rival influences over Taiwan, the location of which is deemed as critical to China's projection of naval power.
This book traces the evolution, explains the appeal, and suggests implications of the geostrategic calculations that pervade PRC strategic considerations of Taiwan. If Chairman Mao came back to life today, what would he think of Nanjing's bookstore, the Librairie Avant-Garde, where it is easier to find primers on Michel Foucault's philosophy than copies of the Little Red Book?
What does it really mean to order a latte at Starbucks in Beijing? In these often playful, always enlightening "tales," Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom poses these and other questions as he journeys from 19th-century China into the future, and from Shanghai to Chicago, St. He argues that simplistic views of China and Americanization found in most soundbite-driven media reports serve us poorly as we try to understand China's place in the current world order—or our own. The first section underscores the importance of war in China by dealing with the Manchu conquest and military rule over China, the developing technology gap between China and the West, the devastating defeats at the hands of Western powers in the 19th century, and early attempts at military reform and modernization.
The second section, Republican China, traces important military reforms that gave rise to a revolutionary movement, the overthrow of the monarchy, and attempts to establish a democratic republic. The military played a dominant role in the search for a viable, modern political state during this period, which saw intense fighting between independent "warlords," contending political parties that used military force against their rivals, and a Japanese invasion.
The third section, People's Republic of China, reveals the critical role of the military and warfare in the period after the Chinese Communist Party came to power. It explores the Chinese Communist role in the Korean War, border clashes with the Soviet Union, India, and Vietnam, changes in military doctrine, organization, and technology, the People's Liberation Army's violent suppression of the student demonstrations, and the military situation in the Taiwan Straits. Land Property Rights Regime in China: Hong Kong and Taiwan Investment in Dongguan: Discourse and Policy Ian G. Cook and Jason L.
A Tale of Two Cities: When Local Meets Global: International Multilateralism with Chinese Characteristics: Racing to Integrate, or Cooperating to Compete? New Player in the Game: China and the North Korean Nuclear Problem: An Exception to the Growing Emphasis on Multilateralism: Multiple Levels of Multilateralism: Rich with details of everyday life, this multifaceted social and cultural history of China's leading metropolis in the twentieth century offers a kaleidoscopic view of Shanghai as the major site of Chinese modernization.
Engaging the entire span of Shanghai's modern history from the Opium War to the eve of the Communist takeover in , Wen-hsin Yeh traces the evolution of a dazzling urban culture that became alternately isolated from and intertwined with China's tumultuous history. Looking in particular at Shanghai's leading banks, publishing enterprises, and department stores, she sketches the rise of a new maritime and capitalist economic culture among the city's middle class. Making extensive use of urban tales and visual representations, the book captures urbanite voices as it uncovers the sociocultural dynamics that shaped the people and their politics.
This work on ethnicity in Asia offers a major sociological analysis of Hui Muslims in contemporary China. Using both qualitative and quantitative data derived from fieldwork in Lanzhou between March and July , it looks at the contrast between the urban life of the Han people, the ethnic majority in the city of Lanzhou, and the Hui people, the largest ethnic minority in the city, and assesses the link between minority ethnicity and traditional behaviour in urban sociology and research on ethnic groups of China.
In-depth interviews and survey data provides a fresh perspective to the study of ethnic behaviour in China, and offers a rich account of Hui behaviour in seven aspects of urban life: Aldershot, , 30 tables, 20 figures, p. Part 1 China in Transition: Inequality, Poverty and Marginalisation: Marginalisation in the Chinese countryside: Cook and Trevor J.
Logiques sociales, , p. Stanford, , 22 tables, p. This study argues that the Internet has brought about new dynamics of socio-political changes in China, and that state power and social forces are transforming in Internet-mediated public space. Its findings are fourfold. First, the Internet empowers both the state and society. The Internet has played an important role in facilitating political liberalization, and made government more open, transparent, and accountable.
Second, the Internet produces enormous effects which are highly decentralized and beyond the reach of state power. Third, the Internet has created a new infrastructure for the state and society in their engagement with and disengagement from each other. Fourth, the Internet produces a recursive relationship between state and society. The interactions between the state and society over the Internet end up reshaping both the state and society. La Chine moderne Mark C. Wiesbaden, , p. The contributions progress from the general to the particular, the first contribution, above all, taking a broad perspective, intended as a general outline of the political and economic history of this macro-region.
The Boxers, China and the World. Cambridge, MA, , index, p. The first narrative history of the Jesuits' mission from until the proscription of Christianity in China in , this study is also the first to use extensive documentation of the enterprise found in Lisbon and Rome. The peril of travel in the premodern world, the danger of entering a foreign land alone and unarmed, and the challenge of understanding a radically different culture result in episodes of high drama set against such backdrops as the imperial court of Peking, the villages of Shanxi Province, and the bustling cities of the Yangzi Delta region.
Further scenes show how the Jesuits claimed conversions and molded their Christian communities into outposts of Baroque Catholicism in the vastness of China. From the late seventeenth through the early twentieth century, Sibao western Fujian was home to a flourishing publishing industry. Through itinerant booksellers and branch bookshops managed by Sibao natives, this industry supplied much of south China with cheap educational texts, household guides, medical handbooks, and fortune-telling manuals. In a study with important implications for cultural and economic history, Cynthia Brokaw describes rural, lower-level publishing and bookselling operations at the end of the imperial period.
Commerce in Culture traces how the poverty and isolation of Sibao necessitated a bare-bones approach to publishing and bookselling and how the Hakka identity of the Sibao publishers shaped the configuration of their distribution networks and even the nature of their publications. Sibao's industry reveals two major trends in print culture: Reconstructing Late Shang practices of authority and their material bases, the author focuses on sacrifice, warfare and burial in their role in the constitution of social identity and hierarchy as intersecting practices of kinship and violence.
Based on these analyses he argues that the Late Shang world was ceaselessly ordered through domesticating practices based on communal violence, ancestral construction and sacrifice, recursively re producing, through differential participation in these practices a hierarchy of being that stretched from sacrificial victims to deified ancestors and the high god Di. Moreover, with place and identity experienced in terms of hierarchical relationships of kinship and patronage, social obligation and political authority were produced through universal participation and investment in a radically inegalitarian social economy of kinship and violence.
An authourized facsimile of a doctoral dissertation submitted to Harvard University. Between and , the Qianlong emperor embarked upon six southern tours, traveling from Beijing to Jiangnan and back. This study elucidates the tensions and the constant negotiations characterizing the relationship between the imperial center and Jiangnan. Politically, economically, and culturally, Jiangnan was the undisputed center of the Han Chinese world. How did the Qing court constitute its authority and legitimate its domination over this pivotal region?
What were the precise terms and historical dynamics of Qing rule over China proper during the long eighteenth century? In the course of addressing such questions, this study also explores the political culture within and through which High Qing rule was constituted and contested by a range of actors, all of whom operated within socially and historically structured contexts. The author argues that the southern tours occupied a central place in the historical formation of Qing rule during a period of momentous change affecting all strata of the eighteenth-century polity.

Leiden, , xx, p. This book examines the historical and politico-economic context in which Chinese law has developed and transformed, focusing on the underlying factors and justifications for changes. It attempts to sketch the main trends in legal modernisation in China and, by doing so, it is hoped that the main features of contemporary Chinese law can be outlined and the nature of contemporary Chinese law can be better understood from a developmental perspective.
This book has a comprehensive coverage of topics: Le premier empereur de Chine. The First Emperor of China Biographie de Qin Shi Huangdi. Leiden, , xxxvi, p. With more than 8, entries, based upon historical records and surviving inscriptions, the comprehensive Biographical Dictionary of Later Han to the Three Kingdoms AD now provides information on men and women of the Chinese world who lived at the time of Later or Eastern Han, from Liu Xiu, founding Emperor Guangwu reg.
The entries, including surnames, personal names, styles and dates, are accompanied by maps, genealogical tables and indexes, with lists of books and special accounts of women. Theodore de Bary offers a selection of essential readings from his anthologies Sources of Chinese Tradition , Sources of Korean Tradition , and Sources of Japanese Tradition so readers can experience a concise but no less comprehensive portrait of the social, intellectual, and religious traditions of East Asia.
Volume 1 samples writings from the earliest times to , illuminating life in early China and the first imperial age, as well as the profound impact of Daoism, Buddhism, the Confucian revival, and Neo-Confucianism; the origins of Korean culture and political structures, up through the Choson dynasty; and major developments in early and medieval Japan. Volume 2 covers major events from to the present, including the initial contact of China, Korea, and Japan with the West; nineteenth-and twentieth-century reform movements in China, along with the Nationalist and Communist revolutions; Korea's encounter with imperialist Japan; and the Meiji Restoration, the emergence of political parties and liberalism, and the Sino-Japanese and Russo-Japanese wars.
Ouest France, , p. Approaching writing as a form of cultural practice and understanding text as an historical object, this book not only recovers elements of the ritual practice of Middle-Period weddings, but also reassesses the relationship between texts and the Middle-Period past. Its fourfold narrative of the writing of weddings and its spirited engagement with the texts--ritual manuals, engagement letters, nuptial songs, calendars and almanacs, and legal texts--offer a form and style for a cultural history that accommodates the particularities of the sources of the Chinese imperial past.
The principal goal of this book is to explain the restructuring of the examination field during a critical point in its history, the Southern Song dynasty , which witnessed the increasing domination of the examinations by the Neo-Confucian Learning of the Way movement. By analyzing textbooks, examination questions and essays, and official and private commentary, Hilde De Weerdt examines how occupational, political, and intellectual groups shaped curricular standards and examination criteria and how examination standards in turn shaped political and intellectual agendas.
These questions reframe the debate about the civil service examinations and their place in the imperial order. Presses Universitaires de Laval, , p. Kathryn Edgerton-Tarpley's original approach explores an array of new source materials, including songs, poems, stele inscriptions, folklore, and oral accounts of the famine from Shanxi Province, its epicenter. She juxtaposes these narratives with central government, treaty-port, and foreign debates over the meaning of the events and shows how the famine, which occurred during a period of deepening national crisis, elicited widely divergent reactions from different levels of Chinese society.
Countering conceptions of Sichuan as an intellectual backwater, author J. Michael Farmer provides an analytical narrative history of the significant intellectual and scholarly activity in the region during the late second through third centuries CE. Qiao Zhou, a noted classicist, historian, and official of Shu-Han, stands as an apt figure to represent the intellectual world of third-century Sichuan. An heir to a long-standing regional intellectual tradition, he was trained in political prophesy, canonical studies, and ancient history, and in true Confucian fashion, employed these skills in the service of the state.
This book summarizes twenty years of the author's work in historical anthropology and documents his argument that in China, ritual provided the social glue that law provided in the West. The book offers a readable history of the special lineage institutions for which south China has been noted and argues that these institutions fostered the mechanisms that enabled south China to be absorbed into the imperial Chinese state—first, by introducing rituals that were acceptable to the state, and second, by providing mechanisms that made group ownership of property feasible and hence made it possible to pool capital for land reclamation projects important to the state.
Just as taxation, defense, and recognition came together with the emergence of powerful lineages in the sixteenth century, their disintegration in the late nineteenth century signaled the beginnings of a new Chinese state. Honolulu, , index, bibliography, p. In this volume, an international group of scholars traces the process by which the project of thinking with cases acquired a systematic and public character in the ninth century CE and after.
Premodern Chinese experts on medicine and law circulated printed case collections to demonstrate efficacy or claim validity for their judgments. They were joined by authors of religious and philosophical texts. The rhetorical strategies and forms of argument used by all of these writers were allied with historical narratives, exemplary biographies, and case examples composed as aids to imperial statecraft. For China scholars, they examine the interaction of different fields of learning in the late imperial period, the relationship of evidential reasoning and literary forms, and the philosophical frameworks that linked knowledge to experience and action.
For comparativists, the essays bring China into a global conversation about the methodologies of the human sciences. Philippe Picquier, Picquier poche, , p. Drawing on largely local sources, including local gazetteers and literati inscriptions for religious sites, this book offers a comprehensive examination of what it means to be 'local' during the Southern Song, Yuan and Ming dynasties in Ji'an prefecture Jiangxi.
It argues that 'belonging locally' was important to Ji'an literati throughout this period. How they achieved that, however, changed significantly. Southern Song and Yuan literati wrote about religious sites from within their local communities, but their early Ming counterparts wrote about local temples from their posts at the capital, seeking to transform local sites from a distance.
By the late Ming, temples had been superseded by other sites of local activism, including community compacts, lineage prefaces, and community covenants. Seattle, Forthcoming , illus.

In Writing and Law in Late Imperial China , scholars of Chinese history, law, literature, and religions explore the intersections of legal practice with writing in many different social contexts. They consider the overlapping concerns of legal culture and the arts of crafting persuasive texts in a range of documents including crime reports, legislation, novels, prayers, and law suits. This book explores works of crime-case fiction, judicial handbooks for magistrates and legal secretaries, popular attitudes toward clergy and merchants as reflected in legal plaints, and the belief in a parallel, otherworldly judicial system that supports earthly justice.
In , Guizhou, Yunnan, and the southern portion of Sichuan were home to an assortment of strikingly diverse cultures and ruled by a multitude of political entities. By , China's military, political, sociocultural, and economic institutions were firmly in control of the region, and many of the area's cultures were rapidly becoming extinct. One purpose of this book is to examine how China's three late imperial dynasties conquered, colonized, and assumed control of the southwest. Another objective is to highlight the indigenous response to China's colonization of the southwest, particularly that of the Nasu Yi people of western Guizhou and eastern Yunnan, the only group to leave an extensive written record.
Male Friendship in Ming China. Friendship was valorized with unprecedented enthusiasm in Ming China. Why the cult of friendship in Ming China? How was male friendship theorized, practiced and represented during that period? These are some of the questions the current volume deals with. Coming from different disciplines history, musicology and literary studies , the contributors thoroughly explore the complexities and the gendered nature of friendship in Ming China.
Armonk, , Table, chronology, glossary, p. This new volume recovers the stories of more than 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. Comtois illustres, , p. Cambridge, MA, , notes, bibliography, index, 16 maps, p.
This volume is the first of a six-volume series on the history of imperial China and covers a broad range of topics. Mark Edward Lewis highlights the key challenges faced by the court officials and scholars who set about governing an empire of such scale and diversity of peoples. He traces the drastic measures taken to transcend, without eliminating, these regional differences: Stanford, , 30 tables, 43 fig. In addition to a wide array of documentary sources, the book employs quantitative analysis to measure the economic impact of natural crises, state policies, and markets.
In this way, the theories of Qing statesmen that have received much attention in recent scholarship are linked to actual practices and outcomes. Using the Zhili-Hebei region as its focus, the book also reveals the unusual role played by the institutions and policies designed to ensure food security for the capital, Beijing. Based on local gazetteers, contemporary field studies, government archives, personal memoirs and other primary sources, it systematically compares two key macro-regions of rural China — the North China plain and the Yangzi delta — to demonstrate the ways in which the forces of political change, shaped by different local conditions, operated to transform the country.
It shows that on the North China plain, the village community composed mainly of owner-cultivators was the focal point for political mobilization, whilst in the Yangzi delta absentee landlordism was exploited by the state for local control and tax extraction.
However, these both set the stage, in different ways, for the communist mobilization in the first half of the twentieth century. Kailash, , p. The Talented Women of the Zhang Family.
La méditation taoïste
The history of China in the nineteenth century usually features men as the dominant figures in a chronicle of warfare, rebellion, and dynastic decline. This book challenges that model and provides a different account of the era, history as seen through the eyes of women. Basing her study on the poetry and memoirs of three generations of literary women of the Zhang family --Tang Yaoqing, her eldest daughter, and her eldest granddaughter-- Susan Mann illuminates a China that has been largely invisible.
Drawing on of primary materials--published poetry, gazetteer articles, memorabilia--as well as other historical documents, Mann reconstructs these women's intimate relationships, personal aspirations, values, ideas, and political consciousness. She transforms our understanding of gender relations and what it meant to be an educated woman during China's transition from empire to nation and offers a new view of the history of late imperial women.
Law and Order in Sung China. Cambridge, , p. Droz, , p. Warren, Forthcoming , p. The soldiers, administrators, colonists, and political exiles who lived there were constantly threatened by hostile inhabitants, disease, wild animals, and supernatural powers. On the other hand, there were new and beautiful plants and fruits, enchanting limestone grottoes, and ravishing landscapes.
London, Forthcoming , p. This book focuses on the formative period in pastoral-sedentary relations, the late second and early first millennium BCE, on today's northern borders of China. It demonstrates that while changes in aspects of daily life, such as subsistence strategies and political organization, were gradual, a much more dramatic change occurred in the style and quantity of symbolic expression. This suggests that the construction of identities - local and regional- was not merely the end result of the process but rather was, from the beginning, an important catalyst of change.
The book brings more comprehensive and nuance understanding to the archaeology and history of East Asia. By focusing on issues of identity, its construction, manipulation and materialization in symbols and artifacts, it also brings new theoretical and methodological innovations to a topic which has a relatively long history in anthropology but which has only recently been seriously addressed by archaeologists. Oxford, Oxford World's Classics, , bibliography, index, p.

Unbounded Loyalty investigates how frontiers worked before the modern nation-state was invented. The perspective is that of the people in the borderlands who shifted their allegiance from the post-Tang regimes in North China to the new Liao empire — Naomi Standen offers new ways of thinking about borders, loyalty, and identity in premodern China. Political borders were not the fixed geographical divisions of the modern world, but a function of relationships between leaders and followers.
