About Book

Book Description
Madeleine Zelin shatters the image of China as a backward empire wracked by corruption and economic stagnation, thrust into the modern world when the western gunboats arrived in the 1840s, by providing an account of the indigenous evolution of the Chinese state. The Magistrate's Tael makes it possible to judge the impact of the West on modern China's development.

From the Inside Flap
"An extraordinary feat: the best institutional study based on archives ever to have been done in the China field. It will set the standard for a generation of researchers."--Philip A. Kuhn, Harvard University
