About this title

Synopsis:

Comprehensive historical account of the production and use of iron and steel in China in their political and economic context. An initial chapter on the traditional Chinese iron industry introduces the important technical concepts and the ways in which technology, geography, and economics influence political phenomena. Further chapters cover developments from the Han to the Tang, the technical evolution and economic revolution of the Song period, and economic expansion under the Ming. A final chapter investigates the debt of the modern steel industry to Chinese developments.

Book Description:

Comprehensive historical account of the production and use of iron and steel in China in their political and economic context. The technology that came originally from the West was transformed in China to a large-scale concentrated industry whose relations with the state were a major factor in Chinese history.
