Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses how the principles and theorems of international law were integrated with doctrines and perspectives from other systems of examining inter-state relations. It also explains how the discourse on international law in China changed over time from the latter half of the 19th century to the last years of Manchu Qing rulership in the early 20th century. The chapter talks about intellectual frameworks that create the surrounding conditions for the discourse on international law to follow. It analyses language and terminology for interpreting international relations in the Chinese linguistic context. The chapter further deals with trade as a part of the Chinese world order. Finally, it addresses the question of how practice in trade and diplomacy in fact corresponds to this framework of East Asian international relations.

Keywords: Chinese linguistic context; Chinese world order; foreign trade; inter-state relations; international law
