Regional special law


Click on this link to see map.


“Regional special law” refers to the legal rules enacted by the central government while applicable only to some specifically identified regions.

This series of maps demonstrate the temporal and geographical development of regional special law, basically sub-statutes, during the Qing dynasty. The maps also display the contrast – either aggravation, mitigation, or the same – between the penalty imposed by a regional special rule and the penalty stipulated in a comparable general rule.


* Geographical coverage of regional special rules is shown on the prefect basis in the maps except in the two pie-chart maps where the provincial basis applies.
