Sample text

Many pirates wore long hair, but the governor’s report specifies that Lun married a Vietnamese wife and kept long hair according to “local” or native custom, not pirate norms (Ruan 1820, 2: 8). Another pirate, Liang Guixing, actually bore a chop that bore the words “allowed to grow hair” (xuyou toufa 蓄有頭髮; Murray 1987, 36). So this was no pirate hairstyle. What then did it signify? The fact that Lun Guili wore Vietnamese attire does not mean that he had integrated into Vietnamese society. Even during the chaotic decades of civil wars, governments implemented policies that sought to control Chinese immigration to Vietnam, their status, and the terms of their integration into Vietnamese society.
