This is the second and final volume of the annotated translation of a seminal Chinese legal text. The ""T'ang Code"", written in 653 AD, is China's earliest law code to survive in its entirety, influencing all subsequent Chinese law, and serving as a model for codes of law in other East Asian countries, including Japan, Korea and Vietnam.

The first volume of the Code, published in translation in 1979, specifies the basic principles of T'ang law and explains the structural standards for applying these principles. Volume II describes acts that are punishable by law and enumerates their punishments.
