Song-Yuan-Ming Transition in Chinese History by Paul Jakov Smith

Book Description

This volume aims to restore continuity to that historical narrative by filling the gap between mid-imperial and late imperial China. The contributors argue that the Song-Yuan-Ming transition (early 12th through the late 15th century) constitutes a distinct historical period of transition and not one of interruption and devolution. They trace this transition by investigating such subjects as contemporary impressions of the period, the role of the Mongols in intellectual life, the economy of Jiangnan, urban growth, neo-Confucian and local society, commercial publishing, comic drama and medical learning.
