Item description for Chinese Outcasts: Discrimination and Emancipation in Late Imperial China (Sinica Leidensia, V. 37) by Anders Hansson...

Outcasts and pariahs are known to exist in several Asian countries but have usually not been associated with traditional Chinese society. Chinese Outcasts shows that some Chinese were in fact treated as outcasts or semi-outcasts. They include the boat people of South China and certain less well-known groups in different regions, including the "musicians' households" and the "fallen people". The reasons for their inferior status and perceived impurity is examined, as well as the intent behind a series of imperial emancipation edicts in the 1720s and 30s. The edict provided an escape route from inferior legal status but failed to put a quick end to customary social discrimination.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chinese Outcasts: Discrimination and Emancipation in Late Imperial China (Sinica Leidensia, V. 37)?

Quite a nice work for elementary reader  Aug 8, 2001
"Chinese Outcasts" is the first English book discussing about the mean people in Qing dynasty. This book gives a comperhensive and detailed factual account of the different emancipated groups and how they were emancipated. This is a good introductary work about the outcasts in Qing China.
