About This Book

These nine papers were given at a conference which complemented the 2009 SAM exhibition on the 1662-1722 reign of the Emperor Kangxi, the second Qing emperor. His multi-faced personality and long reign had considerable impact on the course and shape of China's history. The papers explore: Kangxi's place on the world stage and relations with Louis XIV and Peter the Great, his contemporaries; the Manchu presence and Kangxi's Southern Tours; his scientific and technical innovation policies; dress; shamanism and its incorporation into mainstream religion; tombs, and death rituals; the Treaty of Nerchinsk of 1689; Kangxi period foreign policy in Asia; the significance of this 2009 exhibition. With illustrations and sketch maps. Partly in Chinese.
