The articles of this volume present the majority of papers presented on the First International
Workshop of the research group „Monies, Markets and Finance in China and East Asia“ held at Heidelberg 12 –
16 October 2006. Contributions explore the production and circulation of currencies in Qing China,
Tokugawa Japan and the Ryukyu kingdom, the function of ad hoc administrative structures and the
sale of offices in the Qing period, with research on Qing demography, links between global silver
flows and local events, and European conceptions of the value of monetary metals providing
comparative perspective.
