Chinese Society in the Age of Confucius (1000-250 BC)
The Archaeological Evidence
Series: Ideas, Debates, and Perspectives
Winner of the 2009 Society for American Archaeology Book Award Chinese Society in the Age of Confucius is based on the most up-to-date archaeological discoveries. It introduces new data, as well as new ways to think about them - modes of analysis that, while familiar to archaeological practitioners in the West and in Japan, are herein applied to evidence from the Chinese Bronze Age for the first time. The treatment of social stratification, clan and lineage organisation, as well as gender and ethnic differences will be of interest to those involved in the general or comparative analysis of grand themes in the Social Sciences.
Lothar von Falkenhausen is professor of Chinese archaeology and art history at the University of California, Los Angeles.
