Description: Academies belonged to a broad constellation of educational institutions that flourished in the Sung (960-1279), an era marked by profound changes in economy, technology, thought, and social and political order. The impressive growth in numbers of academies during the late twelfth and thirteenth centuries has been rented to the rise of a new set of ideas known as True Way Learning (tao-hsueh) and to the use of academies by intellectual leaders such as Chu Hsi (1130-1200) to promote their doctrines. This study, the first comprehensive look at the Sung academy movement, explains the phenomenon not only as a product of intellectual changes, but also as part of broader social, economic, political, and cultural transformations taking place in Sung China.

Academies and Society in Southern Sung China makes extensive use of commemorative inscriptions and other documentation on nearly five hundred academies and thus provides a crucial historical perspective on the origins of this key institution.
