About Book

From Library Journal
Ten impressively researched essays prove the editors' point that "historians can and should enrich their work through the use of economic theory, as well as common economic methods." The first five, under the heading "Price Behavior," deal with grain prices and family planning of Qing Dynasty China. The others, in the section "Market Response," address agricultural, labor, and monetary issues during the Republican period. The authors could have done more to link their findings to broader issues of Chinese history, but they certainly have given social historians much to ponder. Recommended for China studies and international economics collections.

Book Description
The essays assembled here represent a turning point in the study of Chinese economic history. Previous work has emphasized the institutional and social bases of economic change. These studies break new ground, bringing Western economic theory to the study of China's economy since the seventeenth century.
