Crisis and conflict in Han China, 104 BC to AD 9 by Michael Loewe( Book )

25 editions published between 1973 and 2016 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume illustrates the growth of two attitudes towards government in China during the first century B.C., the one progressive, realist and forward looking, the other conservative, idealist and harking back to the past. It demonstrates the close relationship that existed between political decisions, intellectual policy and the choice of religious observances of state, whilst showing how personal ambitions and the intrigues of the palace were intimately involved with the interplay of these two basis attitudes. -- Book jacket

Chinese empires were established by force of arms, but sustained by religious rites and intellectual theory.

A biographical dictionary of the Qin, former Han and Xin periods, 221 BC - AD 24 by Michael Loewe( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a reference work about the 6,000 individual men and women known to us from China's formative first empires. Over decennia Michael Loewe (Cambridge, UK) has collected all biographical information available. His work deals not only with those who set the literary forms and intellectual background of traditional China, such as writers, scholars, historians, and philosophers, but also those officials who administered the empire and the military leaders who fought in civil warfare of with China's neighbours. The work draws on primary historical sources as interpreted by Chinese, Japanese, and Western scholars and is supplemented by archaeological finds and inscriptions. By devoting extensive entries to each of the emperors, the author provides the reader with the necessary historical context and gives insight into the dynastic disputes and their far-reaching consequences. No comparable work exists for this important period of Chinese history. Without exaggeration, this book is a real must for historians of both China and other cultures."--Jacket
China's early empires : a re-appraisal( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decides archaeological discoveries, including manuscripts, have shed new fight on the history of China. For example, they make possible a wider and deeper account of the growth of cities and of the spread of chinese influence over distant areas. This book, with a focus on Qiti and Has (221 BCE-220 CE) as seen within the classical era, provides the first comprehensive survey of these developments and evaluates the newly found evidence in the light of earlier conclusions and the research of scholars in China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Europe and America. Through cross-cultural comparisons, as well as through close study of both the excavated and received literature, new conclusions are presented with respect to relatively understand topics, such as gender, history of science and modes of persuasion. The volume also challenges the "common wisdom" in such established fields as Buddhism, Daoism, legal studies and social history. Thus the volume provides an effective supplement to Volume 1 of The Cambridge History of China published in 1986, and shows how subsequent archaeology has widened and enriched our perception of China's history in this period. --Book Jacket

Chang'an 26 BCE : an Augustan Age in China by Michael Nylan( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The northern Chinese city of Chang'an, located near today's Xi'an, was the capital of multiple dynasties. At its zenith during the Western Han dynasty, before an interregnum period divided the dynasty into the Western/Former Han (202 BCE-9 CE) and Eastern/Later Han (25-220 CE), Chang'an was nearly three times the size of Rome and nearly four times larger than Alexandria. Although thousands of studies document imperial Rome's glory, no book-length work in a Western language is devoted to Chang'an, even though the two cities had comparable numbers of capital residents and imperial subjects and comparably vast territories. Chang'an 26 BCE addresses this deficiency, using the reign period of Emperor Chengdi (r. 33-7 BCE) and the year in which the Imperial Library Project began (26 BCE) as a focal point. Such a volume is possible now through correlation of archaeological and literary records relating to several decades in the capital region, when the Western Han capital flourished brilliantly before it was partially razed in 23 CE. This first in-depth survey by some of the world's best scholars, Chinese and Western, builds a case for the need to revise historical assumptions about the two Han dynasties"--Provided by publisher
