Confucian Statecraft in Transition: the Rise of Li Hung-chang, 1853-1875

To complete a book on Li Hung-Chang (1823-1901), the Chinese statesman, which deals with his motivations, policies, actions, and political fortunes through the mid-1870s. Book seeks to determine the compatibility or incompatibility of Confucianism and modern innovations. The tension between traditional loyalties and achievement-minded pragmatism with which Li dealt provide fascinating contrasts and parallels to the problems of statecraft in the Peking of the 1970s.
