Summary Reviewing nearly 1000 instances of protest in China from the 18th to the early-19th centuries, Ho-fung Hung charts an evolution of Chinese dissent that stands apart from Western trends of the same period. Hung's careful research ties China's modern protest more tightly to its Confucianist legacy and distinct history
