Subject: ch. 6: great qing among the states: north china, inner asia, and the age of the land empires
Between 1600 and 1800 Great Qing and Muscovy transformed the map of Inner Asia and ended the millennial dominance of the mounted archer. Qing statecraft, on this frontier almost entirely Manchu and not Han, was as well-informed, aggressive, and effective in Inner Asia as it was defensive and clueless on the coast. The emergence of a self-conscious society of Hui (Chinese Muslims) and the very important roles of Tibetan Buddhism were other key features of this world.
