Overview

China has a rich history of administrative systems, with each major dynasty developing their own civil and state mechanisms, together with the officials needed to staff the system. This fascinating book offers a detailed examination into ancient China's numerous systems of bureaucracy, administration, and governance. It breaks the authoritative coverage down into eight distinct sections: Introducing the Official System in Ancient China * Pre-Qin Royal Power and Post-Qin Imperial Power * The Central Decision-Making System * The Central Government System * Territorial Administration * The Surveillance System * The Military System * Personnel Administration.
