    The first was the relinquishment of a certain kind of intellectual autonomy and moral commitment, so that ethical philosophers became scholarly academicians and political leaders turned bureaucratic administrators. This sweeping biography of "China's Himmler," based on recently opened intelligence archives, traces Dai's rise from obscurity as a rural hooligan and Green Gang blood-brother to commander of the paramilitary units of the Blue Shirts and of the dreaded Military Statistics Bureau: the world's largest spy and counterespionage organization of its time. China and the Seventeenth-Century World Crisis 2. Fairbank, China's Response to the West ; F. The term Ch'ing means "pure," and it was used to add legitimacy to an alien rule. The dynasty was founded in Xi'an on 8 Februarythe first day of the lunar year, by Li Zichengthe leader of a large peasant rebellion.

    Unable to find food in the countryside, his soldiers looted the area, killing resisters, and even resorted to cannibalism as food shortages grew acute. The uneasiness this provoked had two important effects. Unfortunately, moral uneasiness was the eventual result for the policy of mutual accommodation between Manchu rulers and Chinese collaborators. Handicraft industries, such as porcelain manufacture, prospered.

    Stable social structures seemed to be giving way to military states which were insufficiently stable, finally bringing down a ruling house long overwhelmed by social forces it could not control. For the Chinese ruling class of gentry, scholars, and officials the issue was how to transfer loyalty from one dynastic line to the other. The great enterprise was finally exhausted, the imperial order beyond repair. An imperial edict in allowed maritime trade only at the port of Guangzhou. As viceroy of the capital province of Zhili —95he controlled Chinese foreign affairs for the Empress Dowager Tz'u Hsi.
