My Latest (and Longest) Book Is Finally Published!

imageToday, my latest book was released in two volumes by Brill.  The book Law, State, and Society in Early Imperial China: A Study with Critical Edition and Translation of the Legal Texts from Zhangjiashan Tomb No. 247 represents eight years of work for myself and my collaborator, Robin D.S. Yates of McGill University. It is over 1,500 pages long. The first volume is a detailed study of the legal texts excavated in 1984 from a tomb in south China and the legal system they describe. The second volume contains an annotated translation of those texts, with complete introductions. Click on the link earlier in the post for more detailed information, or to purchase a copy.
