  • Editorial Preface
    • Abstract: We devote this issue of the Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies to an examination of the tributary system and its recent career in the field of International Relations (IR). Doing a special issue of this sort is a first for HJAS. We chose this topic because it is a rare example of dialogue between humanistic scholarship on premodern East Asia and contemporary social science. Whether the dialogue is fruitful or fruitless we leave to the reader to decide, but the very fact that the type of research featured in journals like HJAS has an afterlife in a discipline focused on the here and now of international relations demands our attention. Every student of East Asia sooner or later encounters the ... Read More

  • About the Cover
    • Abstract: Chosŏn Korea (1392–1910) is to the tributary system what the nematode is to developmental biology: a model organism studied in the expectation that insights into its workings will translate into other contexts. If only Chosŏn were as accommodating a model as Caenorhabditis elegans. It exercised too much agency to fit the ideal type of a loyal and plastic vassal state—so much, in fact, as to cast doubt on the ideal itself. Nevertheless, it is true that Chosŏn drew heavily from the stock of Ming and Qing institutions, practices, and ideas, even as it adapted them to its own circumstances and needs. The image on the cover is an example of a Korean adaptation of a Chinese model. It is a rank badge ... Read More

  • Long Live the Tributary System! The Future of Studying East Asian Foreign
           Relations
    • Abstract: Almost a half century has passed since the publication of John King Fairbank’s edited volume, The Chinese World Order.1 Since then, the tributary system has come to serve as something of a synecdoche for pre-1900 East Asian international relations. Briefly, the “institutional and textual complex” known as the tributary system describes the practices, norms, and structures of East Asian foreign relations.2 As an aspirational “Chinese world order,” this hierarchical system cohered around the premise that China represented the apical center of civilization. The tributary system became a professional and canonical object of enquiry through Fairbank’s work during the mid-twentieth century, but it has older ... Read More

  • Collective Imaginations and International Order: The Contemporary Context
           of the Chinese Tributary System
    • Abstract: The current renewed attention to the Chinese tributary system is particularly apposite given that the origins of this argument appeared in this journal, now more than seventy years ago. John King Fairbank argued, at that time, that China’s historical relations with other polities throughout Asia could be understood as a tributary system with China at the apex.1 This regional system, centered on a shared cultural order and the performance of ritual tribute, had existed for centuries, even millennia, only coming to an end over the course of the nineteenth century. Today, China’s military and economic growth has sparked scholars to reexamine this claim in order to understand the bases of international order ... Read More

  • Me, Myself, and My Hegemony: The Work of Making the Chinese World Order a
           Reality
    • Abstract: This article explores a puzzle at the heart of the early modern system of international relations in East Asia, also called the tributary system, namely: What exactly did China get out of this system'2 The Fairbankian characterization of this system goes something like this: prior to the Westphalian transition during the late nineteenth century, East Asian foreign relations were conducted in a system based on the principle of Chinese civilizational supremacy.3 Because the tributary system purportedly institutionalized Confucian hierarchy, “vassal” countries—China’s neighbors—recognized China’s superiority by offering “tribute” in periodic diplomatic missions.4 In exchange, China recognized their putatively ...

  • The Tributary System and the Persistence of Late Victorian Knowledge
    • Abstract: If we would discover the little backstairs door that for any age serves as the secret entranceway to knowledge, we will do well to look for certain unobtrusive words with uncertain meanings that are permitted to slip off the tongue or the pen without fear and without research; words which, having from constant repetition lost their metaphorical significance, are unconsciously mistaken for objective realities. In his 1926 address to the annual meeting of the American Historical Association, Carl Becker revealed his process of critical discursive analysis, a practice that we might now recognize as a pre–linguistic turn form of deconstruction.2 As an intellectual historian, Becker had a keen interest in ...

  • China is China, Not the Non-West: David Kang, Eurocentrism, and Global
           Politics
    • Abstract: We need to be much more precise in how we categorize and count wars. There is a point at which methods devour themselves. One of the epigraphs in David Kang’s East Asia before the West is from an unlikely source, and it perfectly frames the issues I raise in this critique. Kang quotes Garrison Keillor: “If you’re an atheist in Minnesota, the god you don’t believe in is Lutheran” (p. 139). It is a brilliant quote because it succinctly summarizes the problem, to my reading at least, that Kang faces in talking about East Asian international relations over a period of six centuries “before the West”—the problem of Eurocentrism. It is the problem of how we talk about Asia in non-Eurocentric ... Read More

  • Response: Theory and Empirics in the Study of Historical East Asian
           International Relations
    • Abstract: It is a genuine honor that these wonderful scholars have engaged critically and thoughtfully with my work, and I am grateful for their detailed comments on the themes and arguments of East Asia before the West.1 My main point in that book is that early modern East Asia had an international system with its own institutions and norms. This system was neither universal nor inevitable; rather, it was the result of a series of choices and decisions over centuries. In their articles, Joshua Van Lieu questions whether it is possible to reify structures and institutions that existed back in time, and he subjects the issue of whether there can be such a thing as “historical facts” to scrutiny; Hendrik Spruyt argues ...

  • Afterword: The Chinese World Order as a Language Game—David Kang’s
           East Asia before the West and Its Commentaries
    • Abstract: David kang’s east asia before the west is an important intervention into how the field of International Relations (IR) might be reshaped by alternative versions of interstate and interpolity relations in non-Western societies, especially before they felt the full impact of the Westphalian-Vatellian system. Although, like the other commentators, I too have some reservations about how the book goes about undertaking that alternative view, I do believe that this collection as a whole provides useful suggestions about how IR might conduct studies from a non-Western historical perspective. My view of East Asia before the West is that it is a good survey and reasonable account of relations among East ... Read More

  • Recent Contributions to Tang Literary Studies: Networks, Gossip, and
           Literary History
    • Abstract: The study of Tang literature in North America has enjoyed a notable resurgence in the last decade, with new publications by both established scholars in the field and emerging younger scholars. It is perhaps not surprising that Tang poetry has continued to exert a strong gravitational pull, given its prominence within traditional literary history. The most recent volume by Stephen Owen on the late Tang brings his multi volume literary history of Tang poetry to a possible close, while Paul W. Kroll’s edited volume on medieval poetry contains important new essays on early and high Tang poetry by Ding Xiang Warner, Timothy Wai Keung Chan, and Kroll himself.1 Christopher M. B. Nugent’s monograph on Tang poetic ... Read More

           River
    • Abstract: The Yellow River: the best of rivers, the worst of rivers. The source of vital irrigation waters and fertile soil for millions of peasant farmers in north China; their scourge, too, repeatedly flooding their homes and ruining their fields. A target of intervention by Chinese rulers, who regarded the control of water as essential to preserving their rule; also a military weapon that they used to make war on rivals. And last but not least, a giant natural system, connecting upland forests, loess soil, and rainfall from central Eurasia with lowland deltas and the Chinese coast, but one subject to breakdowns producing repeated ecological and human disasters. It is not called China’s Sorrow without reason. ... Read More

  • Confucius Murders Squirrels
    • Abstract: Cognitive scientists disagree about the extent to which it is true, as Edward Sapir and Benjamin Whorf famously argued nearly eighty years ago, that one’s language determines one’s thought. But wherever the truth may lie, it is fairly clear that for centuries Chinese culture assumed that the determination does hold. If China has differed from Sapir and Whorf, it has only been to put greater emphasis on written language in particular. As explained in The Great Learning (Daxue 大學) and as long assumed in literate society (and as tested on the civil service exams), internalization of written classics brings inner cultivation that can set one on track to deliver morally appropriate service to the family and then ...

  • The Cambridge History of China, Volume 5, Part 2: Sung China, 960–1279
           ed. by John W. Chaffee, Denis Twitchett (review)
    • Abstract: The publication of the second Song volume of The Cambridge History of China is a milestone in Western scholarship on the Song period, one that has been several decades in the making. Denis Twitchett was already commissioning chapters in the early 1970s, though most of those chapters had to be abandoned after their authors’ deaths. In 1986 he recruited a group of young scholars to do additional chapters; some thirty years later they are senior figures in the field. A majority of the authors are Americans, mostly contemporaries of each other. (In fact, six of them got their PhDs in just six years between 1975 and 1980, a cohort to which I also belong.) The ten chapters in this volume differ ... Read More

  • A Cultural History of Translation in Early Modern Japan by Rebekah
           Clements (review)
    • Abstract: Early modern Japanese read and wrote in a wide array of languages and registers: classical and contemporary Japanese, literary Sinitic, vernacular Chinese, and multiple European languages, among others. In a fine study that is rich in detail yet broad in scope, Rebekah Clements explores the range of practices employed in traversing the intralingual and interlingual borders of this textual terrain. With thoughtful analysis and clear prose, Clements analyzes the diverse ways in which various forms of linguistic difference were conceptualized during the early modern era, as well as how scholars understand them today. The book’s opening chapter explores the status of language within the cultural and ... Read More

  • Prosperity’s Predicament: Identity, Reform, and Resistance in Rural
           Wartime China by Isabel Brown Crook, Christina Kelley Gilmartin, Yu Xiji
           (review)
    • Abstract: Prosperity is a small town in the province of Sichuan, and this book is a study of life there during World War II, when the nearby city of Chongqing was briefly the national capital. It is based on the ethnographic notes made by Isabel Brown Crook when she went there with Yu Xiji 俞錫璣 to work on a social project sponsored by the National Christian Council of China in 1941. By the time the notes from their interviewing took shape as a book during the 1990s, ethnography had become history. Crook worked together with Christina Gilmartin, who as a historian not only did considerable research to fill out the Republican historical context but also framed the project in a way that makes it a fascinating read for ...

           Elizabeth J. Remick (review)
    • Abstract: The two books that are the subject of this review may at first glance seem like an odd pair. While both touch on issues that are often featured in Chinese women’s studies—the book by Hill Gates looking at footbinding and the book by Elizabeth Remick focusing on prostitution—their authors come from different disciplinary fields, address very different problems, and use different methodologies. What links the two books is a turn away from what has been a dominant trend in the study of Chinese women’s history. Over the last several decades much of the best work in women’s and gender history has been influenced by cultural studies approaches, using literary sources to understand the lives of women in ...

  • Rationalizing Korea: The Rise of the Modern State, 1894–1945 by
           Kyung Moon Hwang (review)
    • Abstract: Recent works on colonial Korea have illuminated important aspects of the colonial state, such as its industrial and financial policies for promoting wartime capitalism,1 the role of Japanese settlers in mediating between the colonial government and Korean elites,2 and the state’s spatial transformation of Seoul into a colonial city.3 However, the colonial state itself has not been a main focus of investigation in these studies. Rationalizing Korea aims at filling this gap in the historiography and offers a comprehensive overview of the colonial state’s ideologies, its institutional development, and its multifaceted practices of “rationalizing” Korean society and molding Koreans as the state’s “citizens” or ...

  • The Lama Question: Violence, Sovereignty, and Exception in Early Socialist
           Mongolia by Christopher Kaplonski (review)
    • Abstract: In The Lama Question, Christopher Kaplonski tackles one of most pivotal and sensitive questions in the modern history of independent Mongolia: how the government of one of the world’s most Buddhist countries wiped out the sangha, or Buddhist monastic community, as an institution. As Kaplonski notes, in September 1937 Mongolia had 83,203 monks resident in monasteries out of a total population of roughly 745,000. Less than a year later, only 562 were left in the monasteries. Over 40,000 had fled and laicized; 17,000 still considered themselves monks but lived in the countryside; and 5,000 joined various fledgling collective enterprises. Of the rest, almost 20,000 had been convicted of crimes and about 18,000 ... Read More

  • Excavating the Afterlife: The Archaeology of Early Chinese Religion by
           Guolong Lai (review)
    • Abstract: What is “archaeology of religion,” as found in the subtitle of the book under review' It is, as defined in Michel Foucault’s late 1960s’ Archaeology of Knowledge, an attempt to reconstruct a vision of the past while avoiding the use of a priori categories for interpretation.1 In the case of early Chinese religion, this attempt would be replacing the traditional reliance on transmitted philosophical texts with information from material culture and excavated texts, the results of archaeology as a discipline rather than as an investigative process. Donald Harper advocated this approach decades ago.2 And the application of Foucault’s approach to “religion” using material culture, including burial ... Read More

    • Abstract: For four decades, historians of China’s middle period have tried to run before they walked, ruminating on the evolution of the country’s political and social elites at a macro level before building the necessary foundation in empirical research, especially in the realm of local history. Sukhee Lee’s impeccably researched and deftly executed book delivers a major salvo to prevailing assumptions in the field, while providing alternative ways of reading some of the same texts that informed earlier scholarship. This is the rare book where the footnotes are nearly as meaty as the text itself, due to the author’s tendency to consign his most biting criticism to the notes. Lee addresses elite development ...

  • The Chinese Market Economy: 1000–1500 by William Guanglin Liu
           (review)
    • Abstract: Few scholars would question that the Song dynasty was an era of remarkable economic expansion. Equally, it is widely believed that the early Ming saw a dramatic contraction. It was, perhaps, Mark Elvin more than anybody else, through his pathbreaking monograph The Pattern of the Chinese Past and his translation of Shiba Yoshinobu’s Sōdai shōgyōshi kenkyū 宋代商業史研究, who introduced the English-speaking world to what he called the “medieval economic revolution” of the Song.1 However, Elvin was drawing heavily on the Japanese scholarship that preceded his own work, scholarship with which all Song historians were already familiar. Similarly, the contraction of the early Ming was not unrecognized among ... Read More

  • The Knowledge of Nature and the Nature of Knowledge in Early Modern Japan
           by Federico Marcon (review)
    • Abstract: How does a “traditional” pattern of inquiry into the mysteries of nature give rise—or give way—to an understanding based in modern science' This is hardly a new historical question in any context, geographical or cultural, but Federico Marcon provides an important new perspective on the subject with reference to early modern Japan. His analysis is sophisticated, philosophically informed, and merits close attention. The work can be seen as a case study centered on the intellectual domain of honzōgaku 本草学, which one may translate as natural history, materia medica, or pharmacology. Marcon’s time frame encompasses about two centuries, from the end of the seventeenth century to the 1880s. He does not conceive of ... Read More

  • The Chaos and Cosmos of Kurosawa Tokiko: One Woman’s Transit from

    • Abstract: A very few people live their lives as though they are historical arguments. They move through a series of episodes, one building on another, reaching toward a climax that changes the trajectory of an age. In the realm of Japanese history, the Restoration hero Sakamoto Ryōma 坂本龍馬 comes to mind.1 Many others are perfect bystanders, people whose lives, in their very ordinariness, reflect the vicissitudes of their era. They are born in villages, go to schools, join the army, work in factories, and drift in and out of events and institutions beyond their control. If historians are lucky, they write letters or keep diaries, allowing us a way into social relations and subjective experiences that we would not be ... Read More

The characterization is appropriately broad; although Yanagita may be best known as the founder of the discourse of minzokugaku 民俗学 (translated typically as folklore studies or native ethnology), which aspired to the status of an academic discipline, his influence spread far beyond this particular area of study. The impact of his work was felt in the fields of history, cultural anthropology, linguistics, and literary studies, among others, but also reached far into many forms of popular culture and into popular ...

Moreover, it was a Chinese administration that not only celebrated Confucian rituals within its central and southern core but also carried out Buddhist rituals for its Tibetan and Mongol territories and maintained ...

  • The Lyrical in Epic Time: Modern Chinese Intellectuals and Artists Through
           the 1949 Crisis by David Der-wei Wang (review)
    • Abstract: David Der-wei Wang’s new book aims to investigate the role of the lyrical in Chinese modernity. With eight chapters, an introduction, and a coda, Wang delves into the lives and work of a motley crew of writers, calligraphers, musicians, film directors, and painters. The primary subjects are Shen Congwen 沈從文, He Qifang 何其芳, Feng Zhi 馮至, Hu Lancheng 胡蘭成, Jiang Wenye 江文也, Lin Fengmian林風眠, Fei Mu 費穆, and Tai Jingnong 台靜農. As the wide scope across various cultural forms suggests, Wang hopes to develop a general theory of Chinese lyricism in order to alter what he sees as the “extant paradigm” of Chinese modernity, which has been dominated by the concepts of enlightenment and revolution (p. x).
