Pure, orthodox and incorruptible, Judge Bao has been serving as the preeminent embodiment of justice in China for almost a thousand years, so much so his court case have been adapted as stories, novels and plays over the centuries. Now, for the very first time a series of eight ballad-stories on Judge Bao, dating from the period 1250-1450, are offered in a complete and annotated translation. These texts will provide the reader a complete reflection of the legend of Judge Bao in its earliest phase of development, with an extended introduction placing the ballad-stories in context with the development of the Judge Bao legend. These ballad-stories, in contrast to past plays dating from the same period, present abuse of power and corruption as endemic in the courts and bureaucratic service, and show Judge Bao imposing the rule of law even on the emperor.

Review:

"Only a tiny corpus of the Judge Bao story and dramatic cycle is available in English translation. For this reason, Judge Bao and the Rule of Law will be widely welcomed by those with an interest in Chinese popular culture, Chinese fiction, Chinese understandings of the law in the premodern era, and the recycling of traditional tales in the present day. The translations are highly readable with helpful notes on items of cultural knowledge. Teachers will find in these stories attractive material useful for courses on Chinese popular culture. Scholars of the history of Chinese popular literature will appreciate the author's insights into likely borrowings from antecedent texts and parallels with other fictional or dramatic traditions." --Asian Ethnology
