Money, Banks, and State-Society Relations in Republican Tianjin


Interpreting financial crises as "suspension of impersonal trust" and applying Western theories of trust to the characteristics of the republican banking sector, Sheehan's analysis adds valuable new aspects to the scholarly debate about the role of personal networks and personal trust in Chinese banking and business. -- E. Koll Choice 20040201 Drawing in an extensive archival work and theoretical studies on trust, money, and banking, Brett Sheehan's book breaks new ground in the history of modern China by providing a comprehensive account of Tianjin's financial, social, and political history in Republican China...[S]tudies of Tianjin's banking history are largely absent from the historiography of modern China. Sheehan's work is the first to fill this void...[Trust in Troubled Times lends a] valuable new perspective on the social and political history of modern China. Sheehan's innovative look at state-society relations and the role of elites will certainly be an important resource for sociologists and political scientists who are eager to incorporate a comparative dimension in their work...Not the least value of this book is its unique style of narration...Sheehan draws stories from contemporary newspapers, journals, folk songs, and official documents and makes various players in this book true to life. He turns an ordinarily dull subject into a fascinating one and makes this book a truly enjoyable read. -- Linsung Cheng American Historical Review
