This is a collection of seven case studies which treat different aspects of political and ritual legitimation in China and Europe over the past two millennia. With a primary focus on the analysis of crisis and change, the book's main concern is how rulers and states work to produce a popular political consensus accepting their rule, an important issue in world history.
