by CHRISTOPHER M. ISETT. CONTRACT AND PROPERTY IN EARLY MODERN CHINA, Edited by Madeleine Zelin, Jonathan K. Ocko and Robert Gardella. In his overarching study of China’s legal tradition (Law and Society in Traditional China [Paris: Mouton and Co.]), published inCh’ü T’ungtsu’s few references to property are largely tangential to discussions of the family and.

Madeleine Zelin makes the point that rights on property can take different forms. In China, property rights were well defined, the state played an important (though not exclusive) role in the enforcement of those rights, and the use of contracts permeated all levels of society.

He is currently working on a large-scale study of capital punishment and Confucian justice in eighteenth-century China. Jonathan Fenby's "Penguin History of Modern China: The Fall and Rise of a Great Power, " helped me to begin to comprehend the amazing metamorphosis which China underwent in about one and a half century: from a disintegrating empire, through a turbulent warlord era, through crippling Japanese occupation, civil war, sweeping early communism,/5.

Early modern Europe, with its landed elites, its religious restrictions, and its tangled jurisdictions over land and commercial property, hardly meets the free market ideal either.

Add in religious warfare, the expulsion of entrepreneurial minorities like the Huguenots, Moriscos. Ownership rights are protected under Article 39 of The Property Law of the People's Republic of China, which gives the owner the right to possess, utilize, dispose of and obtain profits from the real property.

What this means is that China is a modern country with a reasonably good legal system; the World Bank recently ranked China 19th worldwide in contract enforcement. If you enter into a contract with a Chinese entity, you should plan to settle any contract disputes by legal action taken in China.

But about 70% of the book deals with the 20th century -- the republic, the war lords, Chiang and Mao, the /5. China today is never out of the news: from international finance to human rights controversies, global coverage of its rising international presence, and the Chinese 'economic miracle'.

It seems to be a country of contradictions: a peasant society with some of the world's most futuristic cities, heir to an ancient civilization that is still trying to find a modern identity.

One of the reasons why it makes sense to call China early modern from a fairly early date is that these attitudes were in place.

They allowed people to specialize, rely on strangers, and that in turn allowed people to respond to market signals. If cloth prices rose, you made more cloth; if they fell.
