Lineage Society on the Southeastern Coast of China: The Impact of Japanese Piracy in the 16th Century

by Ivy Maria Lim


"This book is a gem. On the basis of sound historical detective work, Lim has produced a creative, interesting, and carefully researched study that juxtaposes an underworld crisis, imperial court policy, and local response to provide a new perspective in the wokou (Japanese pirate) crisis of the mid-sixteenth century, portraying it as the catalyst for lineage formation in southeast China." - Journal of Asian Studies
