“This book strongly suggests the new series ‘Law, Society, and Culture in China’ will be indispensable for anyone interested in Chinese or comparative law. The focus of this volume is civil law. However, economic and social historians cannot afford to ignore it. . . . It clearly marks the beginning of a new era in the study of Chinese law, society, and culture.”—Journal of Asian Studies
