The army of China’s Ming dynasty (1368-1644) was staffed by men from hereditary military households, some of whom wrote detailed records about how they fulfilled, or didn’t fulfill, their obligations. These sources, preserved in clan genealogies, reveal that even ordinary families in the Ming developed sophisticated strategies to deal with the state institutions that shaped but did not determine their lives. We can use these strategies to better understand ordinary, everyday political behavior not only in the Ming but in other contexts as well.
