CUSTOMARY LAW OF LATE IMPERIAL CHINA (CA. 1700 - 1900S)

To demonstrate that one of the major reasons for China's great growth in population between the late 17th and mid-19th centuries was the development and practice of customary law in which households, singly and collectively, drew up contracts with each other to share or exchange and transfer property rights claims to resources and income with other households. Approximately 150 contracts will be translated and analyzed.
