Comment

The work is assembling historical precedents to encourage officials to abide by the rules adopted in the course of the “new policies” (xinzheng 新政) reforms, to the effect that corporal punishments should no longer be used for minor crimes. Cases exemplifying light punishment, dating from the Tang through the Qing, are arranged in rough chronological order, but precise references and dates are rare. Only a half-juan is reserved to the cases dating from the Ming and Qing.
