Random information on the term “Tribute”:
The tributary system was a network of loose international relations focused on China which facilitated trade and foreign relations by acknowledging China’s predominant role in East Asia. It involved multiple relationships of trade, military force, diplomacy and ritual. The other nations had to send a tributary envoy to China on schedule, who would kowtow to the Emperor as a form of tribute, and acknowledge his superiority and precedence. The other countries followed China’s formal ritual in order to keep the peace with the more powerful neighbor. At home they did not accept China’s claims of hierarchy and subordination. Political actors within the tributary system were largely autonomous and in almost all cases, virtually independent. Although generally applied to all Chinese polities, this system only existed in the late Ming and early to middle Qing dynasties.
The “tribute system” as a term is strictly speaking, a Western invention. There was no equivalent term in the Chinese lexicon to describe what would be considered the “tribute system” today, nor was it envisioned as an institution or system. John King Fairbank and Teng Ssu-yu created the “tribute system” theory in a series of articles in the early 1940s to describe “a set of ideas and practices developed and perpetuated by the rulers of China over many centuries.” The Fairbank model presents the tribute system as an extension of the hierarchic and nonegalitarian Confucian social order. The more Confucian the actors, the more likely they were to participate in the tributary system.
