The little-examined genre of legal case narratives is represented in this fascinating volume, the first collection translated into English of criminal cases-most involving homicide-from late imperial China. These true stories of crimes of passion, family conflict, neighborhood feuds, gang violence, and sedition are a treasure trove of information about social relations and legal procedure.
