To be Published: November 2019
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
Country of Publication: Singapore
Format: Hardback
Price: £180.00



This book, based on the theory of Marxism-Leninism, aims to study the essence, content and features of various legal systems in China in different historical periods, as well as the rules of the development of Chinese legal systems. It effectively combines classic analysis and historical analysis to probe historical facts and elaborate the historical role of the legal system, revealing both the general and the specific rules of the development of China s legal system on the basis of the existing relevant research. The subject matter is of abundant theoretical and practical significance, as it enriches Marxist legal studies, deepens readers' understanding of China s legal civilization and offers guiding principles for the creation of socialist legal systems with Chinese characteristics. The chapters are structured chronologically, ranging from the Xia and Shang Dynasties, the Western Zhou Dynasty, the Spring and Autumn Period, the Han Dynasty, the South and North Dynasty, the Sui and Tang Dynasties, the Song dynasty to the Ming and Qing Dynasties when China's legal system took on its final form. The chapters are compiled according to legislation, administrative law, criminal law and judicial system. China's legal civilization after the Revolution of 1911 led by Sun Yat-sen is also addressed.
