A Change in Dynasties: Jennifer W. Jay’s book challenges standard Chinese historiography which sees Song loyalists as totally uncompromising to the new Mongol government. Professor Jay’s book marshals an impressive range of evidence to prove that after the defeat of loyalist resistance in 1279, even among the exemplars accommodation was more often the case than resistance. This important new study demonstrates that Song loyalism can best be understood in terms of a spectrum of relative rather than absolute values.
