Overview

Brook (U. of British Columbia) finds state networks in Ming China projecting imperial authority more deeply into society than was the case in contemporary Renaissance Europe, but also detects a strong counter-flow of influence working upward in capillary fashion from social networks below, which placed the state in a posture more reactive than formative in making Ming China what it was. He examines four things, activities, or social groups over which state and social networks competed to assert control. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis.
