Sacred Mandates, edited by Timothy Brook, Michael van Walt van Praag, and Miek Boltjes, reevaluates the complex history of inter-polity relations in Inner and East Asia from the thirteenth century to the twentieth, in order to help us understand and develop policies to address challenges in the region today.

In this 90-minute event, Timothy Brook discusses how this culmination of five years of collaborative research will be the definitive historical guide to international and intrastate relations in Asia, of interest to policymakers and scholars alike, for years to come.

Timothy Brook is a historian of China whose work has focused on the Ming dynasty (1368-1644).

Leigh Jenco is Professor in Political Theory in the LSE Department of Government. 

The Department of Government (@LSEGovernment) is home to some of the most internationally respected experts in politics and government; producing influential research that has a global impact on policy, and delivering world-class teaching to our students.
