This chapter focuses on the first of the three waves of protest in mid-Qing China. It delves into the strategies, ideologies, and collective identities underlying the wave of protest in 1740–1759 by examining the details of select episodes of each of the three common types of state-engaging protests—protests seeking paternalist care from the state, attempting to shape governmental decisions, and requesting governmental intervention in social conflicts—as well as two cases of state-resisting protest. The cases selected are typical rather than exceptional and are well documented in the archival materials. Most of the selected cases are from Jiangsu province, which is a reflection of the geographical distribution of all documented protests for the period.

Keywords:   Chinese protests, Qing dynasty, mid-Qing period, paternalist care, government decision, government intervention, social conflicts, state-resisting protests, Jiangus province
