  • The Making of a Frontier Landscape: The “Ten Views of
           Dongchuan” in Eighteenth-Century Southwest China*
    • Abstract: <p>By Fei Huang</p> Located far away at “Heaven’s end” (tianmo), Dongchuan is one of many remote places in the hinterland of Southwest China (Fig. 1). Dongchuan has deep, river-carved gorges and rugged mountains, with significant local variation in climate like most of Southwest China. Mainly because of this rough topography, Dongchuan and other parts of present-day northeastern Yunnan continued to be occupied primarily by indigenous groups for many centuries. Between 1726 and 1730, the Qing Dynasty (1644–1912) took away the power of indigenous chieftains and started to pursue effective control over this area by means of institutional and military force. After the Qing conquered this area by repressing so-called rebellious indigenous ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Captive’s Revenge: The Taiping Civil War as Drama*
    • Abstract: <p>By Rania Huntington</p> Huang Shuhua (style name Wanli, 1847–64), the protagonist of Xu E’s (style name Wuge, 1844–1903, juren 1885) play Lihua xue (Snow on the Pear Blossom/The Pear Blossom Rights Wrongs, completed 1886 and published 1887) is an exile in three stages: originally a flower-spirit expelled from heaven, she grows up in a scholar’s family in the outskirts of the Taiping capital Tianjing (Nanjing).1 In her childhood the family kept a low profile, maintaining loyalty to the Qing while living in the Taiping capital and making a living by farming. They thus were displaced in both social class position and in political allegiance. During the Qing reconquest of Nanjing, a soldier slaughters her family and takes her far from home. ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Logic of Lies False Accusation and Legal Culture in Late Qing Sichuan
    • Abstract: <p>By Quinn Javers</p> False accusation [wugao] was a strategy deployed by a range of individuals in order to bring their complaints to the court for remediation. It lays bare the very real ways in which locals—including the poor—actively shaped formal disputation as it entered the courtroom. The study of false accusation exposes the sophisticated strategies Qing subjects employed to advance their interests in court, and makes clear that even among the rural poor there was a broad knowledge of the workings of the legal system. Indeed, many individuals resorted to cunning strategies to circumvent normal channels of local dispute resolution in order to avail themselves of state authority. Conversely, one also sees the state, as ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Collaboration and Resistance on the Southwest Frontier: Early
           Eighteenth-Century Qing Expansion on Two Fronts
    • Abstract: <p>By John Herman</p> In 1715 Qing China (1644–1912) was forced to respond to two separate international events, the Zunghar Mongol threat in Central Eurasia and Japan’s decision to limit copper exports to China. The Qing response was immediate. After receiving word that Zunghar forces had attempted to invade Hami (Qomul), a major oasis along the Silk Road, the Kangxi emperor (1654–1722, r. 1661–1722) ordered the mobilization of Qing forces along China’s northwest frontier. The Zunghars had grown increasingly agitated by Qing attempts to control Tibetan affairs: in 1705, Kangxi encouraged the Khoshot Mongol leader Lazang Khan (1656?–1717) to occupy Lhasa and purge those who advocated close relations with the Zunghars, and in 1709 the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Borderlands Business: Merchant Firms and Modernity in Southwest China,
    • Abstract: <p>By C. Patterson Giersch</p> Our Tengchong district! Eight or nine of every ten men leave home (to make a living).Outside of Heshun village, near Tengchong in westernmost Yunnan, the road’s cobbles have settled in the dry, red earth. This narrow stone road makes for a dusty, uneven path leading out of town. In imperial times, along it traveled thousands of village men and their pack animals, intent, so it is said, to provide for the family by leaving it behind. Though this cobble road appears a humble path, it supported a major commercial transition that transformed this village—and many others like it—during the nineteenth century. Over these cobbles clopped horses and mules, their bells clanking and their flags flying, packing commodities ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Searching for the Roots of Western Wealth and Power: Guo Songtao and
           Education in Victorian England
    • Abstract: <p>By Jenny Huangfu Day</p> By the winter of 1878, Guo Songtao had been in London for two years. The Qing empire’s resident minister in England and France, he was exhausted by work and hurt by defamers who called him a traitor, and he was ready to go home. When he first arrived in London he was impressed with England’s industrial might and eager to bring back its secrets to China. “In this country the local gentry strongly advise China to build railways,” he wrote to Li Hongzhang; “they say that the power and might of England are really based on the railway system.” Now, after deeper inquiries into the country’s governance, Guo was of a different opinion. He was certain that the self-strengthening officials had misplaced priorities.1 In his ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Transformation of Historical Material in Religious Storytelling: The
           Story of Huang Chao (d. 884) in the Baojuan of Mulian Rescuing his Mother
           in Three Rebirths
    • Abstract: <p>By Rostislav Berezkin</p> By the late imperial period, China had a long tradition of recycling images of historical figures and events in various genres, both elite and popular. Indeed, historical personages migrated from history to fiction and religious narratives, implying the close connection among different literary genres in the late imperial period. This paper will examine the portrayal of a historical figure, the rebel leader Huang Chao (d. 884), in a late Qing religious text—Baojuan of Mulian Rescuing His Mother in Three Rebirths (Mulian san shi jiu mu baojuan, Che no. 694,1 hereafter abbreviated as Baojuan of Three Rebirths, ca. nineteenth century),—considering also representations of historical figures from other genres of ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Contradictions of Legacy: Reimagining the Zheng Family in the
           People’s Republic of China
    • Abstract: <p>By Xing Hang</p> From 1621 to 1683, the Zheng family from the Minnan region, in southern Fujian province, forged a maritime enterprise that dominated East Asian waters with its powerful naval and commercial fleets. It began as a pirate ring under Zheng Zhilong (d. 1661), who joined the Ming Dynasty (1368–1662) as an official in 1628 and used his post to privatize the Fujian military and convert his illicit business into a multinational megacorporation. After the Manchus entered China in 1644, he tried to cut a deal with the conquerors but was carried off to Beijing, where he lived under house arrest before his execution in 1661. His half-Japanese son, Zheng Chenggong (1624–62), transformed the family enterprise into a pro-Ming ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Reinstating the Authority of the Five Punishments: A New Perspective on
           Legal Privilege for Bannermen
    • Abstract: <p>By Xiangyu Hu</p> Under the Qing juridical system, the Manchus and the Han, or the banner-men (qiren) and the civilian population (minren), were punished differently.1 Scholars generally agree that though both bannermen and civilians were subject to the Qing code, the Qing court allowed bannermen an extensive privilege of commutation in cases punished by penal servitude or exile – the court usually reduced these penalties to the wearing of the cangue.2 The claim that the Qing court favored the bannermen in this way is now a commonplace in Qing historical studies. But why did the Qing court grant bannermen the privilege of commutation? Also, given that the privilege did not arise until 1656, how did the court treat convicted ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Politics and Practice of Moral Rectitude in the Late Ming: The Case of
           Huang Daozhou (1585–1646)
    • Abstract: <p>By Ying Zhang</p> In 1622, the second year of the Tianqi reign (1621–27) in the Ming dynasty, Huang Daozhou (1585–1646), a Fujianese scholar little known outside of his province, passed the jinshi examinations and entered the metropolitan government.1 Over the next two decades, even as the Ming Dynasty was struggling with the political and military crises that eventually led to its fall, Huang Daozhou’s fame as a moral exemplar and loyal official steadily rose. The fame came, however, with a rugged political career trajectory. During these years, Huang Daozhou experienced four major episodes of turmoil in his career, which can be visualized in the following chart delineating his travels between the court and his family tombs: ... <a href="">Read More</a>
