     View Summary

    From Yongzheng 10 (1732) to 12 (1734), the Qing government removed some ethnic groups-the Solons, Dahurs and others from Butha in Heilongjiang and the New Barga from Khalka-to the Hulun-beir region and organized the "eight banners". Although very few historical studies have ever been made on the establishment of the eight banners of Hulunbeir, we can find plenty of materials for this purpose in the Manchu archival documents stored at the Number 1 Historical Archives in Beijing. This fact proves that the Manchus attached importance to this matter. The aim of the present paper is to cast new light on the process of the migration, and the reasons why the Qing government created the eight banners of the migrants, giving special attention to the New Barga who were picked out from among the Khalkhas. What urged the Manchus to plan the removal of the Barga from Khalka to Hulun-beir was the escape of thousands of Barga belonging to one of the qosiru in Setsen Khan Aimak into the Russian territory in Yongzheng 8 (1730). The motive of their escape was to get free of the discriminatively heavy taxes which they were burdened with by their Khalkha ruler (jasar) to pay for assisting the Qing army to carry out the war against the Dzungars. The Manchus, therefore, attempted to prevent any further commotion by separating them from the Khalkha rulers. Although the plan met with some resistance from Khalkha rulers, through various preserving maneuvers, at last the Manchus successfully removed more than 3,000 Barga families in Yongzheng 12. The reasons why the Qing government adopted the eight banner system in ruling them were 1)to dissolve the old feudalistic social organization, for under the eight banner system there were no nobles who would burden the common people with private taxes; 2)to guarantee their living, for according to Qing's rule, the people under the eight banner system would be supported at public expense. Through the above investigation of the New Barga, a foundation has been built for further research on the other groups that were organized into the eight banner system in Manchuria and Mongolia (the so-called New Manchus, the Chakhars, etc.) after the Qing dynasty's conquest of China.

  • A Comparative Study of Honor, Loyalty and Patriotism in 18th and 19th Centuries from the Viewpoint of Military History

    Project Year :


     View Summary

    Using a comparative frame, our project team researched the characteristics of the military ethos of warriors from Japan, China, the Ottoman empire,Germany, and France in what is called the “modern transitional period”(18th and 19th centuries). We took into consideration various direct and indirect relations among these regions in the fields of politics, economy, military affairs, modern scientific thought, and so on. Our research showed that military values such as honor, loyalty, and patriotism were grounded in notions such as rank, status, and class in early modern society and traditional way of thinking, and resulted from of a complex combination of elements such as newly developed military technology, newly adopted military education, the military conscription system, ethnic and religious identity, and nationalism

    The study shows that, before the beginning of the 20th century, verious ethnic groups' movement including the Chinese to Mongolia, the Mongols between Inner and Outer Mongolia and the Kazakhs into Mongolia were observed and that the Qing's policy was not directed to blocking them completely, but to control and adjust their movements practically. Another aspect of this study about the era after the end of 20th century showed the Russia's response to Chinese labor emigrants and the reality and rationality of the demographical situation of its Siberian and Far eastern frontiers. In both of two eras studied in this project the asymmetric structure between China as push factor and Russia and Mongolia as pull factor was observed

  • A Study in "Erdeni tunumal neretu sudur orusiba".

     View Summary

    In 1993, we started our study from criticization and Romanization of the text of "Erdeni tunumal neretu sudur orusiba" and drew up a part of Japanese translation. In 1994, we were mainly engaged in examining the translation and putting interpretation on difficult terms and sentences in the text. Based on these works, we completed a preliminary draft of translation and notes in 1995. As we decided to publish the result of this study, so that in 1996, together with appllying to Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (Grant-in -Aid for Publication Scientific Research Results), we continued to fully reexamine the Romanization, translation and annotation. Getting granted in the following year, 1997, we drew up the preface, indexes, chronological table and bibliography. Our result, named "Altan qagammaan u tugammauji" (this was finally recognized through our investigation as the original title of the text) was publishied from Kazama-Shobo in March of 1998. We are convinced that our criticization of the text and intepretation on the difficult terms and sentences, especially on the Buddhist ones, surpass any precedent studies. At the same time, our study made it clearer that "Altan qagammaan u tugammauji" describes the expeditionary career of the king and the introduction of the Buddhism to Mongolia rather based on historical facts, which differs from other Mongolian chronicles after the 17th century including many mythical factors. It also casted new light on some important themes on history of Mongolia such as the transition of Mongol-Ming relations in the 16th century and the spread of the Tibetan Buddhism among the Mongolian people

  • Formation of China's World Order - Contact and Fusion of Hunting, Pasturage, and Hosbandry Cultures in the 18th Century -

     View Summary

    In 1999 and 2000 we investigated the names and the real situation of the Manchu and Han languages sources deposited at the institutions in Japan, Taiwan, and China (Beijing, Shenyang, Heerbin). We also visited Yunnan, Guizhou, Shandong, and Heilongjiang and confirmed the spread of the Qing and the Manchu culture into the skirts of the China World. We made researches in the following fields.1) We visited the lower reaches of the Heilongjiang (Amur) River. There existed the Heilongjiang Culture by the end of the 19th century. We went down the river from Khabarovsk to Nikolayevsk-na-Amure and investigated the life of minority people, especially those of Nanai (Hezhe).2) We investigated the remains of the Manchu Bannermen's station and their descendants at Qingzhou of Shandong Province. We found the remnants of the Manchu culture in their spoken Han language.3) We examined Neiguoshiyuan dang'an, Neige chuanzong-Like shishu, Junjichu chuanzong- Eluosi dang, and Baqi dutong yamen quanzong-zhiguan lei at the First Historical Archives of China. We also studied Baqi dang'an in Manchu and Han languages at the National Library in Taiwan, the Library of Academy.4) We made research in historical sources of Manchu language and the documents on the issues of Korea and the Qing relations at the Libraries of the Seoul National University and Keishou-kaku.5) We invited Mark Elliott (University of California-Santa Barbara), Liu Xiaomeng (the Research Institute of Modern History Social Academy of China), and Liu Chengyun (the Institute of Academia Sinica) and held research workshops in Toyo bunko and other places. We discussed the present situation of study on Baqi dang'an in Japan, US, China, and Taiwan. We are able to find out the influence of the Manchu, the Mongol, and the Han cultures in Baqi dang'an.6) We compared the Xianghongqi dang'an in Toyo Bunko with the Baqi dutong yamen quanzong dang'an in the First Historical Archives of China. We concluded that those dang'an materials were originally parts of the same series of documents and supplement each other

  • The Transformation Process of Ethnic Groups in Heilongjiang area under the rule of Qing dynasty

     View Summary

    Heilongjiang (黒龍江) area (including present Kulun Buyir area of Inner-Mongolia) experienced a great change of distribution and composition of its population from the latter half of 17th to the first half of 18th century. The main cause of such a change is the incorporation of various ethnic groups into the Eight-Banner system. The Qing (清)government often shifted the location of Eight-Banner troops for political or military purposes, which caused population transfer on a large scale. Besides, basic units (niru) of the Eight Banners were usually organized according to supposed ethnicities, and given ethnic names. In other words, incorporation into the Eight-Banner system meant the official classification of people into ethnic groups.The ethnic framework set up by Qing is supposed to have a great influence upon the classification and the distribution of present nationalities. To make sure of it, we, on the one hand, cast a new light on the detailed process of incorporation of various groups into the Eight Banners through analysis of Qing archival materials. On the other hand, we held interviews with people of several nationalities in Kulun Buyir in 2004 and about the Nen (嫩) valley in 2005, to follow up the transformation process of ethnic conditions in recent years. As a result, it is proved that the ethnic definition given by the Qing government, together with the position under the Eight-Banner system, forms the basis of present group identity of each nationality. We also came to know that another element which had a great influence upon the distribution, social and cultural conditions of the native groups was, the open-land policy followed by the torrent of immigration of Han-Chinese from the last years of Qing dynasty

Specific Research

  • 清-ロシア関係史に関するロシアにおける研究史の総括と再検討


     View Summary

     本研究の目的とするところは、特に18世紀の清-ロシア関係をめぐるロシア(ソ連)における研究史・研究動向を総括・再検討するための第一段階として、国内において可能な限りの情報を収集・分析することにあった。この目的を達成するため、具体的には次の3つの方面から作業を進めた。①Скачков、 П.Е. Очерки истории русского китаеведения (Москва、 1977) 、等の基本文献によって、ロシア(ソ連)の中国研究史を整理する;②既存の各種の文献目録等を基に、ロシアの中国研究に関するできるだけ総合的・網羅的な文献・資料の基礎リストを作成する;③関連文献を比較的多数所蔵する国内各機関について、②の基礎リストに基づく所蔵チェックを行うとともに、基礎リスト自体の補完も行う。以上のうち、②については、Скачков, П.Е. Библиография Китая (Москва-Ленинград、 1932);Tung-li Yuan、 Russian works on China 1918-1960 in American libraries(New Haven、 1961)等の目録のほか、研究代表者が1996年にモスクワのСинологическая библиотека(中国学図書館)における調査の際に作成した文献・資料リスト等を基に、逐次基礎リストを整備しつつあるが、現在のところ完成には至っていない。③については、早稲田大学中央図書館をはじめ、日本ロシア語情報図書館(東京都世田谷区)、北海道大学スラブ研究センター図書室等で調査を行ったほか、NACSIS-Webcat等のオンライン検索システムを通じての検索も実施し、データの充実に努めている。今後は、関連する概説書・研究書における引用・参照文献をもチェックして基礎リストをさらに充実させるとともに、より広範囲にわたる実地調査を進めた上、ある段階に達した時点で、上記①の作業に基づく適当な解題を付した上で公開する予定であるが、その方法としては、ホームページ等を活用することも考慮している。

  • 中国東北およびモンゴルにおける清朝の統治と民族集団の再形成の関係についての研究


     View Summary

    本研究は,申請者が従来から継続的に取り組んできた清朝統治下の中国東北における諸民族集団の再形成のプロセスの解明を,隣接するモンゴルの状況との比較をも視野に入れつつ,より全面的に進めることを目的とするものであった。そのため,計画通り1998年7月から8月にかけて中国に出張し,主として北京の中国第一歴史档案館において清朝中央政府の文書史料(档案)の調査を行った。 実際に閲覧・調査したのは,1)1680~90年代の「礼科史書」と「兵科史書」と,2)1720~30年代の「朱批奏摺」で,特に1)に重点をおいた。 これは,1680~90年代が,ロシア帝国およびジュンガル部の東進によって東北とモンゴルの諸民族の分布・帰属に大きな変動が見られた時期に当たり,現在に至る民族構成の基礎が形成される画期の1つであったの認識に基づく。「史書」とは中央・地方官が皇帝に提出した上奏文(題本)の副本であり,これまで十分な調査・研究が行われておらず,また当該時期の題本の原本が多く散逸している関係上,東北・モンゴルに関しても未知の情報を相当量含んでいると期待された。しかし,実際に閲覧してみると,予想以上に残欠がはなはだしく,系統的な情報を得ることはきわめて困難であった。 それでも,1)当該時期に清朝が東北とモンゴルにおいて実施した一連の軍事行動への在地諸民族の動員状況;2)戦乱を避けて各地に分散した諸民族の各グループの動向;等について,若干の新たな知見を得ることができた。なお,中国第一歴史档案館における調査以外に,北京では相当数の関連書籍を購入した。以上の調査によって得られた知見については,これをロシア語史料から得られる情報と対比させつつ,目下分析を進めているが,具体的な発表先は現時点では確定していない。
