Dragons, tigers, and dogs: Qing crisis management and the boundaries of state power in late imperial China
Robert J. Antony, Jane Kate Leonard
East Asia Program, Cornell University, 2002 - Fiction - 333 pages
A tightly-focused collection of studies that explores how Qing governing institutions worked in actual practice to address the practical problems of a regionally diverse and culturally complex empire from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. Highlights the Qing regime's ability to accommodate an astonishing variety of local governing environments in the management of short-term crises and long-term evolutionary problems caused by changes in the social-economic fabric during the Qing period and makes an important contribution to our understanding of the operation of the Qing government. Its readability, thematic coherence, and art work including professionally-drawn maps and Chinese woodblock illustrations make this an attractive, accessible work to students as well as Qing specialists.
