Summary
This pathbreaking volume demonstrates that, contrary to previous scholarly understanding, Qing and Republican courts dealt extensively with such civil matters as land rights, debt, marriage, and inheritance, and did so with striking consistency and in conformity with the written code. Civil justice is shown to be fundamental to an understanding of social relations and of the way the state sought to regulate those relations through law. The opening of local archives to Western scholars in the 1980's has provided the basis for this reexamination of civil law in Qing and Republican China
