How was the vast ancient Chinese empire brought together and effectively ruled? What are the historical origins of the resilience of contemporary China's political system? In The Constitution of Ancient China, Su Li, China's most influential legal theorist, examines the ways in which a series of fundamental institutions, rather than a supreme legal code upholding the laws of the land, evolved and coalesced into an effective constitution.0Arguing that a constitution is an institutional response to a set of issues particular to a specific society, Su Li demonstrates how China unified a vast territory, diverse cultures, and elites from different backgrounds into a whole. He delves into such areas as uniform weights and measurements, the standardization of Chinese characters, and the building of the Great Wall. The book includes commentaries by four leading Chinese scholars in law, philosophy, and intellectual history--Wang Hui, Liu Han, Wu Fei, and Zhao Xiaoli-who share Su Li's ambition to explain the resilience of ancient China's political system but who contend that he overstates functionalist dimensions while downplaying the symbolic. Exploring why China has endured as one political entity for over two thousand years, The Constitution of Ancient China will be essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the institutional legacy of the Chinese empire.

  • Introduction
  • From guoshi killing to killing at play : the low end of the intent continuum
  • The marriage of concept and circumstance : killing in an affray and the intent to harm
  • Murder, mercy, and mens rea : intentional homicide in the Qing dynasty
  • Limited options : intentional homicide in republican China
  • Continuities in China : the recreation of Qing rulings in republican courts
  • Damages : changing notions of reparations and harm in homicide and injury law
  • Conclusion.
In A Question of Intent: Homicide Law and Criminal Justice in Qing and Republican China, Jennifer M. Neighbors uses legal cases from the local, provincial and central levels to explore both the complexity with which Qing law addressed abstract concepts and the process of adoption, adaptation, and resistance as late imperial law gave way to criminal law of the Republican period. This study reveals a Chinese justice system, both before and after 1911, that defies assignment to binary categories of modern and pre-modern law that have influenced much of past scholarship.

  • Introduction
  • Social change and written law in pre-imperial China
  • Inscribing control in Qin
  • The anatomy of a Qin legal statute part I
  • The anatomy of a Qin legal statute part II
  • Conclusion.
The legal institutions of the short-lived Qin dynasty (221-207 BCE) have been vilified by history as harsh and draconian. Yet ironically, many Qin institutional features, such as written statutory law, were readily adopted by subsequent dynasties as the primary means for maintaining administrative and social control. This book utilizes both traditional texts and archeologically excavated materials to explore how these influential Qin legal institutions developed. First, it investigates the socio-political conditions which led to the production of law in written form. It then goes on to consider how the intended function of written law influenced the linguistic composition of legal statutes, as well as their physical construction. Using a function and form approach, it specifically analyses the Shuihudi legal corpus. However, unlike many previous studies of Chinese legal manuscripts, which have focused on codicological issues of transcription and translation, this book considers the linguistic aspects of these manuscripts and thus their importance for understanding the development of early Chinese legal thought. Writing Chinese Laws will be useful to students and scholars of Chinese Studies, as well as Asian law and history more generally.

本书以中国传统法律体系的转型为背景, 重点探讨新刑律修订过程中的制度转换与礼法关 系等问题, 以此展现清季最后十年政治和思想的发展脉络.作 者认为, 这部预备立宪时采用的新式刑法典, 的确为调适中西新旧煞费苦心, 既翻译移植了欧美和日本的大量法典, 兼采并蓄, 又变造体例, 设法保守礼教条文, 努力于'自创良法', 以往所谓新刑律抄撮日本法律之说, 不过沿袭反对者之说辞, 值得商榷.

  • Introduction
  • From epithet to crime
  • Arbiters of justice in a lawless state
  • The political economy of the anti-Anti-hanjian Campaigns
  • Engendering contempt for female hanjian and cultural hanjian
  • Punishing hanjian beyond Chinese borders
  • Epilogue: From crime to epithet.
Throughout the War of Resistance against Japan (1931-1945), the Chinese Nationalist government punished collaborators with harsh measures, labeling the enemies from within hanjian (literally, "traitors to the Han Chinese"). Trials of hanjian gained momentum during the postwar years, escalating the power struggle between Nationalists and Communists. Yun Xia examines the leaders of collaborationist regimes, who were perceived as threats to national security and public order, and other subgroups of hanjian-including economic, cultural, female, and Taiwanese hanjian. Built on previously unexamined code, edicts, and government correspondence, as well as accusation letters, petitions, newspapers, and popular literature, Down with Traitors reveals how the hanjian were punished in both legal and extralegal ways and how the anti-hanjian campaigns captured the national crisis, political struggle, roaring nationalism, and social tension of China's eventful decades from the 1930s through the 1950s.
