Civil-Military Relations

There is no comprehensive survey of this subject, but several articles should be consulted. These include Morton H. Fried, "Military Status in Chinese Society," American Journal of Sociology 57 (1951-1952), 347-357; Winston W. Lo, "The Self-Image of the Chinese Military in Historical Perspective," Journal of Asian History 31.1 (1997), 1-21; and Joanna Waley-Cohen, "Commemorating War in Eighteenth-Century China," Modern Asian Studies 30.4 (1996), 869-899. The October 2000 issue of War and Society (18.2) contains four articles on civil-military relations in Imperial China.
