Abstract:

"In Legal Practice in the Formative Stages of the Chinese Empire, Ulrich Lau and Thies Staack offer a richly annotated English translation of the Wei yu deng zhuang si zhong ... a collection of criminal case records from the pre-imperial state of Qin (dating from 246 BC-222 BC) that is part of the manuscripts in the possession of Yuelu Academy.
