The dynastic centre and the provinces [5.31 mb]
"Maintaining the connections between the dynastic court and the provinces was a major challenge for pre-modern governments. The allegiance of governors shifted easily from the centre to the provinces. Ritual and festive occasions equally important to generate cohesion were rarely shaped wholly by either side. Agents & Interactions examines these connections in late imperial China early modern Europe and the Ottoman empire. Contributions highlight the different and evolving notions of the governor the choreography of rulers touring their realm and the interpretations of sources describing such events. Important intercultural parallels appear and it becomes clear that the domains of politics and culture cannot be separated. The chapters in this volume suggest important revisions and outline an agenda for comparison"--Provided by publisher
