Between hierarchy and patriarchy: The duality of Chinese bureaucracy in history
Xueguang Zhou - Professor of Sociology; Kwoh-Ting Li Professor in Economic Development and FSI Senior Fellow, Stanford University

From the perspective of comparative institutional analysis, Zhou examines the historical origins of Chinese bureaucracy and state building in China. Zhou argues that Chinese bureaucracy took shape in response to two forces: the power of the absolute state and the differential mode of association in Confucian culture. As a result, the institutions of Chinese bureaucracy in history were characterized by the duality of hierarchy and patriarchy. This historical legacy has had a strong influence on the remaking of Chinese bureaucracy and state building in contemporary China.
