(p.273) Chapter Nineteen From Paramilitary to Militia
Emperor and Ancestor
Stanford University Press

Pan Jin, an entrepreneur who was actively involved in the public works for the Mulberry Garden Dike, advised the Guangdong government on how to deal with bandits and was also privately engaged in land reclamation. His contemporary, Long Tinghuai (1749–1827) of Shunde county, belonged to an older lineage that was among the magnates on the sands. He played an instrumental role in negotiating policing arrangements with the provincial administration and, in 1800, sent a letter to the governor of Guangdong, Hutuli that would have a bearing on the militarization of the sands. This chapter, which focuses on banditry or piracy that affected the Pearl River Delta and the use of militia as a form of defense in imperial China, also looks at the role of militia in the Opium War.
