In Law, State, and Society in Early Imperial China, Anthony J. Barbieri-Low and Robin D.S. Yates offer the first detailed study and translation into English of two recently excavated, early Chinese legal texts. The Statutes and Ordinances of the Second Year consists of a selection from the long-lost laws of the early Han dynasty (206 BCE-220 CE). It includes items from twenty-seven statute collections and one ordinance. The Book of Submitted Doubtful Cases contains twenty-two legal case records, some of which have undergone literary embellishment. Taken together, the two texts contain a wealth of information about slavery, social class, ranking, the status of women and children, property, inheritance, currency, finance, labor mobilization, resource extraction, agriculture, market regulation, and administrative geography.

Review:

"L'un des plus grands mérites de ce livre, outre sa volonté d'exhaustivité dont témoignent les mille cinq cents pages de texte ainsi que l'excellente qualité de ses traductions, est d'être une oeuvre scientifique au sens plein du terme. Law, State and Society in Early Imperial China présente en effet en creux une synthèse critique de l'abondante littérature publiée ces trois dernières décennies sur le droit des Qin et des premiers Han. Les textes étudiés par les auteurs posent de nombreuses questions d'interprétation, en raison notamment des choix effectués lors de l'édition des tablettes et des difficultés propres au langage utilisé. De nombreuses thèses, parfois contradictoires, ont pu être émises, sur la valeur desquelles les auteurs reviennent régulièrement. L'ouvrage s'appuie donc sur l'état actuel des connaissances, dont il s'efforce en outre de préciser lesquelles des propositions méritent le plus d'être retenues. L'introduction, qui constitue l'essentiel du premier tome, présente de surcroît un véritable discours de la méthode exposant les données principales sur lesquelles s'appuie la recherche menée par les auteurs. Le tout place ainsi le lecteur face à un travail d'une grande solidité et le met en position de vérifier l'ensemble des affirmations avancées.(...) Les résultats des recherches exposées dans Law, State and Society in Early Imperial China intéressent à la fois le spécialiste de l'antiquité chinoise et l'historien du droit.(...) Law, State and Society in Early Imperial China constitue enfin une basesolide pour tout travail de synthèse tentant de décrire l'évolution de l'ancien droit chinois depuis ses origines."
Frederic Constant, université Paris X Nanterre
