Cambridge University Press 9780521102377 The Aristocratic Families in Early Imperial China: A Case Study of the Po-Ling Tsui Family
Much scholarly work has been published on the Chinese medieval aristocracy, in Chinese, Japanese and Western languages. It is commonly accepted that the change from an aristocratic society to a meritocracy was one of the turning points of Chinese history. But since almost every aspect of political, economic and cultural history is involved in questions of the nature of the aristocracy, perhaps the only way to test theories of the means by which a small elite preserved its social status and political prestige for seven or eight hundred years is by tracing the fortunes of a single family in great detail. The present work is a fully documented case study of the Tsuis of Po-ling from the first through the ninth centuries. By observing OW evolution of the Tsuis as an aristocratic kinship group and an unusual quantity of rich and original source material was available to Dr Ebrey the author demonstrates OW fluctuation in aristocratic influence and tic changing basis of such families prestige and power. Studies such as this are essential to enlarge our knowledge not only of medieval society and politics in China but also the development of family and lineage. In the light of the detailed evidence Dr Ebrey provides, many conventional views many well have to be abandoned. *Author: Ebrey, Patricia Buckley *Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Chinese History, Literature and Institu *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 252 *Publication Date: 2009/03/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.57 inches
