The Qing Dynasty formed an important bridge between "traditional" and "modern" China. Spanning a period of remarkable continuity, this dynamic and culturally-sophisticated dynasty has attracted an enormous amount of new scholarship in recent years, and this work, which has been extensively expanded and updated, Richard J. Smith shows how the Chinese of the Qing Dynasty viewed the world, and how their outlook was expressed in China's institutions, material culture and customs. His analysis of China's enduring traditions encompasses aspects ranging from daily life to mythology, religion, divination and philosophy.
