  • Brief Valediction
    • Abstract: With this volume, my editorship of the Journal of Song-Yuan Studies hereby concludes. Thus, albeit insufficient, I express my deepest gratitude for the humbling privilege of having served over the past six years in this unique capacity. I am also grateful for the boundless support I have received from all constituencies during my tenure—from past editors and guest editors, from board and production colleagues, from contributors and reviewers, from printer and readership. I am incapable of supplying all names of those who have in one manner or another assisted me. Moreover, even to attempt it would result in a declaration of transition that is much the opposite of the brief one I here intend. Nonetheless, for the ... Read More

  • Physical Beauty and Inner Virtue: 'Shinü tu' in the Song Dynasty
    • Abstract: During the Song dynasty, landscape and flower-and-bird painting flourished, but the popularity of shinü tu (仕女圖), that is, depictions of gentlewomen, declined significantly.1 This decline is remarkable when compared with the number of such works produced during the Tang (618–907) and the Five Dynasties (907–960). During those periods, shinü tu artists, such as Zhou Fang (周昉; 8th c.), Zhang Xuan (張萱; 8th c), and Zhou Wenju (周 文矩; ca. 907–975), were recognized and numerous paintings of women were created. However, the Imperial Painting Catalog of the Xuanhe Era (Xuanhe huapu 宣和畫譜) did not categorize a single Song artist as excellent in the painting of women, and the imperial collection includes only five shinü tu, by ...

  • A Crisis in the Literati State: The Sino-Tangut War and the Qingli-Era
           Reforms of Fan Zhongyan, 1040–1045
    • Abstract: In the first lunar month of 1040 the Tangut Xi Xia ruler Weiming Yuanhao (嵬名元昊, r. 1032–1048) launched a devastating attack on the frontier prefecture of Yanzhou that plunged the Song realm into its first protracted war in almost four decades. Three years later the political activist and war hero Fan Zhongyan 范仲淹 (989–1052) was summoned from the Shaanxi—Ordos front to enact the first major institutional reforms of the still-young but dangerously ossifying dynasty. By 1044 the war was over, and with that Fan Zhongyan's reforms were summarily aborted. Much has been written about each of these momentous events, which collectively anticipated the still more dramatic frontier wars and institutional reforms that ... Read More

  • Domesticated Landscapes of Li Gonglin: A View from the Anthropocene
    • Abstract: The Song dynasty was a time of much cultural florescence, and among the most enduring achievements is landscape painting. Through the efforts of many scholars, we understand that landscape painting has roots in religious practices and philosophical beliefs.1 Furthermore, politics and society shaped the growth of landscape painting, which communicated the agendas of scholars, aristocrats, and emperors and their kin.2 Finally, Song artists themselves are credited with artistic invention and technical refinement in the making of landscapes that have become icons in the history of art.3 The research makes clear the religious, philosophical, social, political and artistic dimensions of landscape, and so it should be ...

  • The Official Historiographical Operation of the Song Dynasty
    • Abstract: "On a necessarily limited scale, envisioning history as an operation would be equivalent to understanding it as the relation between a place (a recruitment, a milieu, a profession or business, etc.), analytical procedures (a discipline), and the construction of a text (a literature) … the historical operation refers to the combination of a social place, "scientific" practices, and writing."The governmental historiographical agencies—Guange 館閣—played a special and important role in eleventh century China.1 From the imperial vantage point, Guange was the first place to search for historiographical practitioners.2 In this paper, I propose to envision Guange as a nexus of the Song official historiographical operation ...

  • Official Recruitment, Imperial Authority, and Bureaucratic Power:
           Political Intrigue in the Case of Yu Fan
    • Abstract: Historians generally agreed that middle period China, roughly referring to the time of Tang (618–907) and Song (960–1279) dynasties, is a time of changes. One of the most prominent changes was the transition from aristocracy to autocracy,1 the latter of which I would define as a system of government by a single ruler or other pragmatic institution(s) that derive authority from the ruler.2 This autocratic system of government is neither checked effectively by nongovernmental nor intragovernmental forces. Deriving authority from the single ruler, the functioning of institutions or individuals such as Empresses regencies, Secretariat-Chancellery or Councilors, termed by Wittfogel as "single autocratic center of ...

  • Pu'a's Boast and Doqolqu's Death: Historiography of a Hidden Scandal in
           the Mongol Conquest of the Jin
    • Abstract: The Mongol conquest of North China has received little attention from modern historians in comparison to that of Central Asia, Iran, or South China, or to its undeniable importance to the Mongol empire.1 Being the first major conquest outside the Mongolian plateau, the conquest of Jin dynasty in North China had seminal importance for the Mongol institutions. Moreover, as recent research has emphasized (e.g., Wang 2011: 45–64; Iiyama 2014: 475–76), the prolonged and traumatic nature of the conquest provoked massive depopulation and migration which in turn resulted in major changes in community and social structure.One of the reasons for the inattention to this seminal event in Chinese history has been the difficulty ...

  • Was 'Da Yuan' a Chinese Dynasty?
    • Abstract: The Mongol Empire, which had begun as a nomadic state in 1206 under the leadership of Chinggis Khan, after three generations of conquest, grew into the largest continental empire in human history. In the 1230s, the Mongol army conquered most of the Pontic steppe and Russia; in 1258, they destroyed the Abbasid Caliphate and subdued most of West Asia; and in 1276, they vanquished the Song Dynasty in Southern China. Scholars, however, believe that in spite of this astonishing success, the empire could not maintain unity, and consequently was divided into several large regional polities.One of these polities was the so-called "Yuan dynasty," whose territory covered most of present day China and Mongolia. At first it ... Read More

  • Princely Qualities and Unexpected Coherence: Rhetoric and Representation
           in 'Juan' 117 of the 'Yuanshi'
    • Abstract: The Yuanshi has long been regarded as a particularly undistinguished member of the Standard Histories, and is generally taken, largely due to the haste of its compilation, to be a flawed and deficient text suffering from multiple omissions and widespread confusion.1 Its various sections are nonetheless regularly drawn upon by scholars for their abundance of material on the eastern end of the Mongol empire. The work is, however, by no means entirely arbitrary—or free of rhetorical tailoring—in its treatment of the era, certain sections receiving more attention from the compilers than did others.2 This article argues that one of those sections is the somewhat odd collection of Činggisid princes presented in juan 117 ...

  • Negotiating between Mongol Institutions and "Han Traditions": Buddhist
           Administration in Southeastern China under the Yuan
    • Abstract: After the Mongol conquest, Yuan political institutions evolved unique features as a result of the combination of Mongolian institutions with the preexisting Chinese autocratic bureaucratic system. Something of an academic consensus has formed around the hybrid system of government during the Yuan dynasty.1 However, debate continues to surround certain questions about the formation of this hybrid system. Taking into account the pressure from Mongolian aristocrats who insisted on preserving the Mongol traditional political system, Khubilai Khan (忽必烈汗, r. 1260–1294) formulated a basic principle for constructing the early Yuan political system, namely "Refer to the previous Khans' grand plan, while also discussing ...

  • A Grand Strategy or a Military Operation?: A Reconsideration of the
           Lingzhou Campaign of 1081
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1081, Dowager Empress Liang 梁太后 (?–1085) of Xi Xia 西夏 staged a coup, temporarily imprisoning her son Xia Huizong 夏 惠宗 (1060–1086), for his having discarded Xi Xia court ritual in favour of Chinese ceremonies.1 The coup was reported to the reigning Song emperor Shenzong 宋神宗 (1048–1085) by Vice Supreme Director of Operations of Fuyan Circuit 鄜延路 Chong E 種諤 (1017–1083), urging a quick response to the precious opportunity to launch a punitive expedition against Xi Xia. To restore the Song emperor as the rightful ruler of the Tangut people and recover the old borders of Han (202 bce–ce 220) and Tang (618–907) times, Chong E appealed to lead armies that would sweep over the Sino-Tangut frontier and ...

  • The Capital of the Yuan Dynasty by Chen Gaohua (review)
    • Abstract: Often there is no clear reason a Chinese book is selected for translation into English. This is the case for the recent translation of Chen Gaohua's 陳高 華 Yuan Dadu 元大都, published in 1982 by Beijing chubanshe.1 A reliable translation of the text as well as the notes and chronology, The Capital of the Yuan Dynasty is aimed at a knowledgeable reader. Useful end matter is included—a list of Yuan dynasty (1267–1368) emperors, Chinese units of measure used in the Yuan period, a character glossary, names of buildings in English translation and with Chinese characters, names and translated names of official titles, and an index—but only the ruler list would be useful to a general readership. The bibliography is only ... Read More

  • Writing, Publishing and Reading Local Gazetteers in Imperial China,
           1100–1700 by Joseph R. Dennis (review)
    • Abstract: Early in graduate school, when I was searching for a viable dissertation project in middle period spatial history, I suggested to my advisor that I would start by reading a bunch of gazetteers to see what would crop up. Had I done so, I would still be at that aimless pursuit these twenty years later, and I am grateful that he discouraged me from embarking on it. Nevertheless, gazetteers have retained their fascination for me, one that they hold for many historians of China. It is surprising they have never received book-length attention in English. This has made it difficult for people like my graduate student self to work with gazetteers in ways that go beyond quick reconnaissance trips to seek particular ... Read More

  • Emperor Huizong by Patricia Buckley Ebrey (review)
    • Abstract: Emperor Huizong 徽宗 (r. 1100–1126), traditionally viewed as a fatuous and incompetent ruler who brought a tragic end to the Northern Song dynasty, becomes the only Song emperor who has a biography in English. In this wellresearched and highly readable book, Patricia Ebrey aims to rescue Huizong from Chinese morality-based accounts and to understand him as a real person. This is not Ebrey's first study of this figure. In 2006, she coedited a collection of essays, Emperor Huizong and Late Northern Song China, with Maggie Bickford.1 Two years later, she published a monograph, titled Accumulating Culture, on Huizong's art collections and his building of cultural authority in the empire.2 In both of these books, Ebrey ...

  • The Burden of Female Talent: The Poet Li Qingzhao and Her History in China
           by Ronald Egan (review)
    • Abstract: Ronald Egan's book on Li Qingzhao is an immense work of peerless scholarship and erudition that should single-handedly right the balance in the heretofore-meager fare of English-language publications on the subject. Given Li Qingzhao's 李清照 (1084–ca. 1155) stature as China's most celebrated woman poet, the dearth of English scholarship on her life and writing is indeed surprising. As Egan notes in the Introduction, the lack of scholarly work in the West is striking when contrasted to the steady stream of hundreds of modern biographical and critical studies in Chinese on Li Qingzhao's life and poetry published from the Republican period (1911–1949) to the present. After two thin monographs on her life and works ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Generals of the Yang Family is the product of a long-term partnership in translation of early Chinese plays between Stephen H. West and Wilt L. Idema that began with Chinese Theater 1100–1450: A Source Book (1982). Their collaboration continued with the translation of Wang Shifu's 王實甫 The Story of the Western Wing (19911 and 1995), and has more recently delivered four large collections of translations: Monks, Bandits, Lovers, and Immortals: Eleven Early Chinese Plays (2010); Battles, Betrayals, and Brotherhood: Early Chinese Plays on the Three Kingdoms (2012); The Generals of the Yang Family: Four Early Plays (2013); and The Orphan of Zhao and Other Yuan Plays: The Earliest Known Versions (2014).

  • Negotiated Power: The State, Elites, and Local Governance in Twelfth- to
           Fourteenth-Century China by Sukhee Lee (review)
    • Abstract: In Negotiated Power, Sukhee Lee offers a fascinating, detailed study of local society in Mingzhou 明州 (modern-day Ningbo 寧波) during the Song and Yuan dynasties, based on an extensive survey of a wide variety of sources, including local gazetteers, literary collections of local authors, and tomb epitaphs. Lee's particular focus is on the relationship between the state and local elites. As such, his book constitutes the latest response to the Hartwell-Hymes localization thesis, which describes the entrenchment in the provinces—over the course of the Song dynasty—of the elite families producing the top bureaucrats, in conjunction with a relative retreat of the state from the active management of local society. Some ... Read More

  • Money in Asia (1200–1900): Small Currencies in Social and Political
           Contexts eds. by Jane Kate Leonard and Ulrich Theobald (review)
    • Abstract: Money in Asia, an anthology edited by Jane Leonard and Ulrich Theobald, is a result of research conducted from 2006 to 2012 by the international research group "Monies, Markets, and Finance in China and East Asia, 1600–1900," created and directed by Hans Ulrich Vogel. The book contains a preface by Mark Elvin, an introduction by Ulrich Theobald, and eighteen chapters by different scholars. I shall focus on four chapters that discuss monetary history in late imperial China, a subject of special interest to me. These chapters are: "'Silver is Expensive, Cash is Cheap': Official and Private Cash Forgeries as the Main Cause for the Nineteenth-century Monetary Turmoil," by Werner Burger; "Smoke on the Mountain: The ...

  • Dialectics of Spontaneity: The Aesthetics and Ethics of Su Shi
           (1037–1101) in Poetry by Yang Zhiyi (review)
    • Abstract: Yang Zhiyi describes the project of Dialectics of Spontaneity as a "continuous exegetical effort that calls Su Shi to relive in the modern" (p. 22). Yang explores topics that others have discussed in the Chinese and English scholarship on Su Shi 蘇軾 with an eye to complicating the interpretations and reframing the significance of Su Shi's writings in contemporary, largely Western critical terms. These are ambitious goals based on a distinctive critical stance that from the outset both produces insights worthy of reflection and raises larger conceptual and methodological problems for the community of scholars.In the Introduction, Yang discusses "spontaneity" as an essentially hybrid term that echoes Song dynasty ...

    • Abstract: In JSYS 44, page 350, footnote 86, Yuan Chen wrote that "Morris Rossabi believes that the preference for white 'must have been a purely Mongol custom, as white is considered the color of mourning in Chinese tradition,'" citing The Travels of Marco Polo: The Illustrated Edition, edited by Morris Rossabi; Chen went on to write that "This, however, was a misunderstanding, as white was not the traditional color for morning in Chinese tradition." The earlier quote should have been attrributed to Henry Yule and Henri Cordier's original translation of Marco Polo, the source for all the footnotes in The Illustrated ... Read More
