Example text

The Anglo-Qing dominion of the China coast gave way to imperialist rivalry among the great industrial powers of Britain, Russia, France, Germany and Japan, who all invaded Chinese territory. While establishing an alien hegemony in their possessions and granting extra-territoriality to their citizens, the foreign powers placed the native Chinese elite in the situation they most abhorred: ruling under alien hegemony, reminding them of both the Manchu-dominated Qing rule and the Mongolian-dominated Yuan dynasty.

By the end of the Tang Dynasty [618–907], there appeared books entitled Zang Shu Di Mai Jing in one volume and Zang Shu Wu Yin in one volume. They did not mention that they were written by Guo Pu. Only in the Song Shi [History of Song Dynasty, 960–1279] was there a record of Guo Pu as the author of the Zang Shu in one volume. Therefore the book originated in the Song Dynasty. Afterwards, practitioners of various divining arts 22 An Introduction to Feng Shui competed to elaborate on the book and thus formed a book of as many as twenty chapters.

Many texts suggest that the number of poorly versed diviners grew, to the dismay of both government and the literate class. One example is an anonymous text from Late Song to the Early Ming period called Twenty-four Difficult Problems, which deplores the scores of practitioners who ‘absurdly match longevity, the receiving of favours, becoming an official and imperial prosperity with good and evil spirits and good and ill fortune, consequently causing the lucky not to be buried and those buried not to have good fortune’.
