The last emperors : a social history of Qing imperial institutions by Evelyn Sakakida Rawski( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) was the last and arguably the greatest of the conquest dynasties to rule China. Its rulers, Manchus from the northeast, held power for three centuries despite major cultural and ideological differences from the Han majority. In this book, Evelyn Rawski offers a bold new interpretation of the remarkable success of this dynasty, and argues that it derived not from the assimilation of the dominant Chinese culture, as has previously been believed, but from an artful synthesis of Manchu leadership styles and Han Chinese policies

Death ritual in late imperial and modern China by James L Watson( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the late imperial era (1500-1911), China, though divided by ethnic, linguistic, and regional differences at least as great as those prevailing in Europe, enjoyed a remarkable solidarity. What held Chinese society together for so many centuries? Some scholars have pointed to the institutional control over the written word as instrumental in promoting cultural homogenization; others, the manipulation of the performing arts. This volume, comprised of essays by both anthropologists and historians, furthers this important discussion by examining the role of death rituals in the unification of Chinese culture. - Publisher's description

Worshiping the ancestors : Chinese commemorative portraits by Jan Stuart( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite their compelling presence and often exquisite quality, Chinese ancestor portraits have never been studied as a genre. This illustrated book is the first to explore in depth the artistic, historical, and religious significance of these remarkable paintings and to place them in context with other types of commemorative portraiture." "Since the sixteenth century, portraits were commissioned in China in great number and variety. Depictions of individuals range from formal, iconic poses to the very casual and offer fascinating glimpses of Chinese life and culture. The riveting, realistic ancestor portraits - supremely powerful likenesses - were important objects of veneration, and the practice of making memorial portraits continued into the twentieth century, when paintings were gradually replaced by photographs." "Until recently, these often lavish, full-length portraits of seated men and women, which came into vogue in the late-Ming (1368-1644) and Qing dynasties (1644-1911), languished in relative obscurity, hidden from the view of non-family members and largely ignored by connoisseurs of Chinese art. Here, the authors explore the works in depth, present a fascinating study of the Qing imperial court, provide biographies of sitters from the military and social elite, and discuss the magnificent furniture and costumes that often surround the subjects. They also consider the impact of photography." "The book focuses on the superb collection of Ming and Qing portraits in the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery of the Smithsonian institution, Washington, D.C., with works recently restored to their original brilliance by the museum's conservators. This group of paintings was originally assembled in the late 1930s and 1940s by Richard G. Pritzlaff, a New Mexican rancher, who obtained the portraits from a Chinese dealer known for his connections with nobles selling their family heirlooms." "Worshiping the Ancestors appeals to connoisseurs of Chinese art and to all those interested in social history, portraiture, and devotional art."--Jacket

Early Modern China and Northeast Asia : Cross-Border Perspectives by Evelyn Sakakida Rawski( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revisionist history of early modern China, Evelyn Rawski challenges the notion of Chinese history as a linear narrative of dynasties dominated by the Central Plains and Hans Chinese culture from a unique, peripheral perspective. Rawski argues that China has been shaped by its relations with Japan, Korea, the Jurchen/Manchu and Mongol States, and must therefore be viewed both within the context of a regional framework, and as part of a global maritime network of trade. Drawing on a rich variety of Japanese, Korean, Manchu and Chinese archival sources, Rawski analyses the conflicts and regime changes that accompanied the region's integration into the world economy during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Early Modern China and Northeast Asia places Sino-Korean and Sino-Japanese relations within the context of northeast Asian geopolitics, surveying complex relations which continue to this day. --cover
