Until recently Chinese law was not much studied either in China or abroad, but it is now generally realized that law has been enormously important in Chinese society. The result has been a surge in new scholarship on Chinese legal history that has begun to influence perceptions of the imperial Chinese state and society in the broader sinological community, and is sure to have an impact on scholars of contemporary China. With this development of interest in Chinese law among sinologists has come a realization among students of comparative law of the necessity to include Chinese law as part of a fully informed view of comparative law. The Great Qing Code is the only accurate and complete English translation of the body of law which lay at the center of the Chinese law during the last dynasty of the Chinese Empire (1644-1911). As such it is certain to be a great aid and stimulus to the contemporary study of Chinese law.
