The records of the China Maritime Customs service can be used to illuminate trade as well as the contours of local production and local impacts of larger economic events. Lyons (economics, Cornell U.) explains how port-specific data can be obtained from the records and what use can be made of them. He illustrates his points with a case study of the tea trade. The CD-ROM contains the datasets used for the case study. Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the "Postscript"-- "This book will have served its purpose if the reader, having decided to venture into the [Chinese Customs] Returns, finds the task less time-consuming and frustrating, and more productive and enjoyable, than would otherwise have been the case. I hope too that Part One of the book will serve as a useful guide to the evolution of China Maritime Customs and to its statistical practices and as a convenient pointer to further description and analysis. And I hope that Part Two will have value beyond its role as an example illustrating 'pitfalls' and ways to address them, standing also as a contribution to the study of tea, and trade, in Fujian."About the Author:
Thomas P. Lyons is Professor of Economics at Cornell University and a former Director of Cornell's East Asia Program.
