Abstract

China Review International: Vol. 16, No. 3, 2009 many colleagues (duo you), an important social group that seemed by the Western Zhou period to include clan members of equal status and members of the elite Tiger Guard who protected the king. These lateral relationships no doubt played a political and social role somewhat similar to that recognized by Brown as a control on the hierarchical pressure of dynastic loyalties. Any inscribed memorials cast after the end of the Spring and Autumn period up to the Qin period are mostly lost--no doubt a result of the need for bronze weapons and the destruction of the economic networks required to produce bronze ritual bells and vessels. It is clear, nonetheless, that the impulse survived, albeit in a new medium and reflecting a changed sociopolitical context--one for which the Warring States period was instrumental to bringing about. The collapse of Zhou aristocracy complete, local heroes, such as the exiled minister and poet, Qu Yuan, became celebrities. Although Brown's fine study does not pretend to explore the historical or religious contexts behind the types of Eastern Han memorial stelae, it does lift the lid on a single era of their production.
