I just noticed that the final version of the manuscript of my paper with James Lee and Mark Elliott entitled “Demographic estimate of the population of the Eight Banners” is available for download at the Harvard institutional repository.
Here is the full citation:
Elliott, Mark C., Cameron Campbell, and James Lee. 2016. A Demographic Estimate of the Population of the Qing Banners. Études chinoises. XXXV-1: 9-40.
Hopefully this paper will be useful and interesting to anyone working on Qing history.
