The Ming dynasty was the last great Chinese dynasty before the Manchu conquest in 1644. This book narrates the changing landscape of life over the three centuries of the Ming (1368-1644), when China was transformed from a closely administered agrarian realm into a place of commercial profits and intense competition for status.
