This appendix essay surveys the rise of Huixue (Huizhou scholarship) in post-Mao China as background for the main theme of this special Nan Nü issue: the chastity cult in Huizhou. It discusses works by China’s leading Huizhou specialists on a number of key aspects of Huizhou socioeconomic history, especially lineage institutions and mercantile groups in the late imperial period. It also calls attention to the enormous richness of Huizhou source materials, especially the newly uncovered Huizhou wenshu (Huizhou documents) which include contracts, wills, personal letters, tax records, rent books, and local liturgies.
