Abstract

The functions of the Willow Palisade, a barrier of trees developed in China during the Ch'ing dynasty illustrate the Manchu government's attitude towards the Tungpei region. The location of gates and personnel, travel accounts, and hsien gazeteers reveal changes in the Palisade during the two hundred and fifty years of Ch'ing rule. Study of the Willow Palisade contributes to an understanding of traditional China's frontier viewpoint and illuminates contemporary China's attitude towards its northeastern border with the Soviet Union.
