About This Book

The Great Ming Code set out by the Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang (1328-1398), the founder of the Ming Dynasty, formed the basis of Chinas legal system until 1911. This study explores the roles played by the Code in society, and the concepts and belief system which underlay it and influenced many of the values of Chinese society including the pervasive Mandate of Heaven concepts. The Code is seen as a source of education, spiritual and moral guidance and identity and not just a tool for political or social control. With glossary, bibliography and index.
