about

This historical investigation describes the Qing imperial authorities? attempts to consolidate control over the Zhongjia, a non-Han population, in eighteenth-century Guizhou, a poor, remote, and environmentally harsh province in Southwest China. Far from submitting peaceably to the state?s quest for hegemony, the locals clung steadfastly to livelihood choices?chiefly illegal activities such as robbery, raiding, and banditry?that had played an integral role in their cultural and economic survival. Using archival materials, indigenous folk narratives, and ethnographic research, Jodi Weinstein shows how these seemingly subordinate populations challenged state power.

Jodi L. Weinstein teaches history at The College of New Jersey.

Editorial Reviews

Weinstein adds to the rich body of English-language monographs on the relationship between China?s late imperial empires and non-Han peoples living on the borderlands of China proper. . . . An important contribution to the new Qing history with this solidly researched study of the Zhongjia and their resistance to Qing rule.
