Su questo libro:

Riassunto: Professor Chaffee offers a stimulating investigation into the social impact of examinations on the Sung. Analysis of the development of the examination system and of the associated government schools reveals attempts by the early emperors to develop meritocratic recruitment, the growth of unprecedented examination competition as the elite increasingly turned to learning, and the appearance of special examinations for the privileged that subverted the system's fairness. Study of the geographical patterns of success points not only to the remarkable dominance of south-eastern China but also to the relationship between the socio-economic development of regions and their success in the examinations. Finally, the profound cultural impact of these examinations on the upper class is explored through examination rituals and the depictions of gods, ghosts and wandering literati in Sung vernacular literature.

Descrizione del libro: Professor Chaffee offers a stimulating investigation into the social impact of the examinations system on the Sung Dynasty. This study analyses how government schools attempted to develop meritocratic recruitment and the consequences that impacted this system both on the elite as well as the upper class.
