A Look Inside
Bowker Data Service Summary
Academies were part of the educational institutions of the Sung (960-1279), an era in China marked by profound changes in economy, technology, thought, and social and political order. This study attempts to explain the phenomenon.
Unpaid Annotation
This is the first comprehensive look at the Sung academy movement. It explains the phenomenon not only as a product of intellectual changes, but also as part of broader social, economic, political, and cultural transformations taking place in Sung China.
