Social Structure: Lisu, Qingyi and Law

  • Zhangrun XuEmail author


As have been seen previously, Social Structure is a macro conceptual framework which Liang Shu-ming constructed to characterise the peculiarity of traditional Chinese society. In retrospect, being an analytical reference, this framework was initiated by The Theory of Rural Reconstruction in 1937 and had been reworked continuously in more matured detail, culminating in Essential Meanings of the Chinese Culture in 1949. In addition, certain treatises and essays published during the 1930s–1940s also contributed to the elaboration and interpretation of this conception.
