Before and beyond divergence : the politics of economic change in China and Europe by Jean-Laurent Rosenthal( )

18 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosenthal and Wong show that relative prices matter to how economies evolve; institutions can have a large effect on relative prices; and the spatial scale of polities can affect the choices of institutions in the long run. Their perspective on institutional change has implications for understanding transformations in China
Nourish the people : the state civilian granary system in China, 1650-1850 by Pierre-Etienne Will( )

16 editions published between 1991 and 2020 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Qing state, driven by Confucian precepts of good government and urgent practical needs, committed vast resources to its granaries. Nourish the People traces the basic practices of this system, analyzes the organizational bases of its successes and failures, and examines variant practices in different regions. The volume concludes with an assessment of the granary system's social and economic impact and historical comparison with the food supply policies of other states
Public goods provision in the early modern economy : comparative perspectives from Japan, China, and Europe by Roy Bin Wong( )

11 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume compares early modern efforts to provide "public goods" defined as non-market mediated goods not limited to personal relations such as kinship. We examine poverty and famine relief, infrastructure, and forestry in East Asia and Europe, using Japan's Tokugawa era (1603-1868) as a benchmark from which to consider public goods provision in Prussia, China, and England. Japan is similar in size to a European country and linked to China through shared beliefs and practices. Such an approach allows us to mediate comparisons made directly between China and Europe and to avoid taking England as the norm for an 'advanced' society." - Provided by publisher
China transformed : historical change and the limits of European experience by Roy Bin Wong( Book )

29 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wong compares the growth of capitalism and the formation of national states in modern Europe with economic and political changes in China, and explains that a crucial rupture occurred when European industrialization set new conditions for material and social life. He contrasts Chinese and European political changes, and explores the implications of social protest, economic change, and state-making by comparing grain seizures, tax resistance, and revolution as they occurred in both areas. Only by evaluating where China and Europe appear to converge or diverge and by analyzing whether convergence reflects similar underlying processes, he argues, can we successfully situate the trajectories of both realms in world-historical development."--Jacket
Culture & state in Chinese history : conventions, accommodations, and critiques by Theodore Huters( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2022 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many observers of late imperial China have noted the relatively small size of the state in comparison to the geographic size and large population of China and have advanced various theories to account for the ability of the state to maintain itself in power. One of the more enduring explanations has been that the Chinese state, despite its limited material capacities, possessed strong ideological powers and was able to influence cultural norms in ways that elicited allegiance and responded to the desire for order. The fourteen papers in this volume re-examine the assumptions of how state power functioned, particularly the assumption of a sharp divide between state and society. The general conclusion is that the state was only one actor - albeit a powerful one - in a culture that elites and commoners could shape, either in cooperation with the state or in competition with it. The temporal range of the papers extends from the twelfth to the twentieth century, though most of the papers deal with the Ming and Qing dynasties

Geschichte der Welt by Cemil Aydin( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zwischen 1750 und 1870 wurde aus einer Welt, die - bei aller Vernetzung - im Großen und Ganzen noch regional strukturiert war, eine immer enger zusammenhängende Einheit. Seitdem sind die unterschiedlichen Teile des Globus nicht nur über Kriege und Handel miteinander verbunden; auch kulturelle Entwicklungen, politische Reformen und soziale Veränderungen waren immer häufiger aufeinander bezogen. Mit dem Band "Wege zur modernen Welt" liegt nun der vierte Band der großen, auf insgesamt sechs Bände angelegten Geschichte der Welt vor. Wie bildete sich die moderne Weltwirtschaft heraus, und warum begann die Industrialisierung nicht in China, sondern in England? Welche Rolle spielten Sklaven und Nomaden in der zusammenwachsenden Welt? Wie wurde aus dem Hinduismus eine moderne "Religion", worin lagen die Ursachen für die Revolution der Zeitvorstellungen im 19. Jahrhundert, und inwiefern war die Entstehung der "muslimischen Welt" eine Reaktion auf globale Integration? Fragen wie diese werden in vier thematisch organisierten Kapiteln ausführlich behandelt. Das Ergebnis ist eine dezidiert globalgeschichtliche Sicht auf die Welt des 19. Jahrhunderts, die bisher gängige Narrative infrage stellt. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)

Geschichte der Welt by Akira Iriye; J©ơrgen Osterhammel; Sebastian Conrad; Cemil Aydin; R. Bin Wong( )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weltgeschichte ist lange Zeit als eine Geschichte des Aufstiegs und Niedergangs einer kleinen Zahl von 'Hochkulturen' geschrieben worden. Unter diesen Kulturen schienen Europa oder der atlantische 'Westen' während der letzten Jahrhunderte nach den Kriterien Macht, Wohlstand und kulturelle Kreativität zu dominieren. Das neue sechsbändige Werk zur Weltgeschichte, das von einem Team von Historikerinnen und Historikern vorwiegend aus den USA und Deutschland erarbeitet wird und das gleichzeitig bei C.H.Beck und Harvard University Press erscheint, verabschiedet sich von diesen Traditionen. Es leugnet die Errungenschaften des Westens nicht, stellt sie aber in den größeren Zusammenhang gleichzeitiger Entwicklungen in anderen Teilen der Welt. Dadurch wird das allmähliche, dabei aber krisenhafte Entstehen des heutigen dicht integrierten und pluralistischen Weltzusammenhangs sichtbar. Erstmals werden in diesen Bänden die Ergebnisse von mehreren Jahrzehnten internationaler Forschung zur Vorgeschichte der Globalisierung und zur Entwicklung von Gesellschaften und politischen Ordnungen auf allen Kontinenten von führenden Experten zusammenfassend dargestellt. Weltgeschichte erscheint hier nicht als Aneinanderreihung einzelner Spezialgeschichten. Die Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich auf bisher wenig beachtete Querbeziehungen und Wechselwirkungen: auf Migrationen von Einzelnen und Gruppen und die Gründung neuer Gesellschaften, auf die interkontinentale Ausbreitung von Technologien, Religionen oder politischen Ideen, auf globale Kommunikationsnetze, Handelsströme und Konsummuster, auf Imperialismus, Kolonialismus und großräumige Kriege."Akira Iriye und Jürgen Osterhammel Zwischen 1750 und 1870 wurde aus einer Welt, die - bei aller Vernetzung - im Großen und Ganzen noch regional strukturiert war, eine immer enger zusammenhängende Einheit. Seitdem sind die unterschiedlichen Teile des Globus nicht nur über Kriege und Handel miteinander verbunden; auch kulturelle E
