Chapter 8 (The Shore in Twilight)


I explain why I use the term "duchy" here. The civil service from village level to province level is supported in such a manner, the size of each duchy diminishing in proportion to the area of political jurisdiction. The province is essentially a kingdom-in-miniature, the prefecture is a province in miniature, etc.

I spot a mistake. "Loose" should be "lose".
