The Sichuan Frontier and Tibet: Imperial Strategy in the Early Qing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Dai (history, William Paterson U. of New Jersey) describes how late in the 17th century, the Manchu Qing dynasty observed that its remote neighbor Tibet was in danger of subjugation by the Zunghar Mongols, who might then be able to exert even more pressure on China's northern and northwestern border than before. The imperial response was to strengthen Sichuan, which bordered Tibet, to serve as a launching pad for military operations in Tibet. His study is about the transformation of Sichuan in that process, which had nothing to do with the people there or in Tibet. Among his topics are the strategic turn from the Steppe to Tibet 1696-1701, realignment in the Yongzheng period 1723035, the military presence in the society and economy, and the benefit and cost of imperial strategy.
