Book Description:

In this blockbuster book, William T. Rowe uses Chen's life to examine the culture of the 18th-century bureaucracy, encompassing nearly all the classic problems of Chinese society, past and present.

"Rowe's new work can be said to be a model of painstaking and exhaustive research. It is also quite possibly the best single study ever written anywhere of the life, thought and career of a pre-1800 Chinese scholar-official . . . .This is a brilliant picture of the world of a major Chinese thinker and bureaucrat in the 1700s . . . .[It is] must reading for anyone interested in the thought and practices of Chinese politics after 1700."
