The volume presents research on state and society in
Republican China exploring various aspects of Republican
history from the governance perspective. Governance is
understood in a broader sense as interactions between state and society,
including both the discursive process of social
decision-making and the provision of (non-)material public
goods. Topics highlighted are: the internationalization of
disaster relief, the philanthropic governance of overseas
Chinese in Xiamen, the transformation of the cultural group
„World Society“, historical writing and intellectual
autonomy as well as the construction of warlord identity.

Mechthild Leutner is Professor of Chinese
