legal history, Jin-Shu, China, Han Dynasty, Jin Dynasty
Relatively little is still known of law and legal thinking in ancient China. This recent book by Robert Heuser sheds some light on this era. The book, published in German, draws upon a chapter of the Jin-Shu dynastic chronicle which surveys the events in the Chinese Empire of the first centuries, A.D.
