Abstract

journal of world history, march 2013 of state making, aiming at expanding the power of the government to various sectors of Chinese society. What seems to be the true "network revolution" was the creation of a unified, centralized, and homogenized nation-state. In this process, merchants were incorporated into the government as a tool of control and coercion, rather than as a force to counter the totalizing state. From this perspective, Mark Granovetter is right in describing Chen's contribution as "to move network analysis away from a purely interpersonal framework, into one where history, culture and institutions interact with networks in a mutually causal way" (quoted on p. xvii). Clearly in the book, Chen offers a nuanced and rich account of the multiple forces that helped to create the chambers of commerce in early twentieth-century China. But he goes too far to call the merchant organization a "network revolution." tze-ki hon State University of New York at Geneseo Shattering Empires: The Clash and Collapse of the Ottoman and Russian Empires, 1908­1918.
