CommentRem.: Jiang illustrated himself in pacifying the Miao first in Hubei and later in Guizhou, where he was a Grand Coordinator (xunfu) from 1596 to early 1599. Li’s preface comments glowingly on his prowess in civilizing the aborigines and earning their love. The 18 pieces that compose the work include, among others, records (ji 記), a proposal for famine relief, prefaces (xu 序)—e.g. to the new Guizhou tongzhi—, inscriptions (ming 銘) with prefaces, introductions (yin 引)—e.g. to an expansion of Ming Taizu’s Six Maxims that he had published for the use of the locals—, proclamations, and admonitions to his son sent from Guizhou (Qianzhong shouxun 黔中手訓). The work was published in 1621 by the author’s son, who was affraid that his descendants might not know of the “shining plans bequeathed [by their ancestor]” (qingbai zhi yimou 清白之詒謀).
