  Li (unit) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A modern li consists of 1,500 Chinese "feet" or chi and, in the past, was often translated as a "mile." Since the li has generally been only about a third as long as the mile, translating the character as "Chinese mile" or simply "li" is much less likely to produce confusion or error.
In Chinese, li is sometimes prefaced by the character shi (市, shì) to distinguish it from the kilometer proper or gongli (公里, gōnglǐ).
Like most traditional Chinese measurements, the li is reputed to have been established by the Yellow Emperor at the founding of the Chinese civilization around 2600 BC and standardized by Yu the Great of the Xia Dynasty six hundred years later.

 Comparative Law | Chinese Law (Introduction)
Chinese law blends into another area, the prescription of social norms by a li "propriety" system, which in large part is the creation of ritual specialists.
Li might be described as an elaborate set of behavioral prescriptions having the bulk, and at certain times also the effective force, of a legal system, with the head of the household as its sole local arbiter; there are perhaps parallels in Roman custom.
The Confucians in the 04th century, and most Chinese in subsequent ages, have tended to identify their culture with the li norms, not (as would be the case in the West) with its law tradition.

 Introduction by Gong Li | Chinese Opera | Abbeville Press
The Chinese opera's roots extend back to the Tang dynasty (618-907 A.D.) and Emperor Tang Ming Huang, who had a great love of the opera and sponsored special training schools for actors.
Tang Ming Huang is still remembered, too, as the patron saint of the Chinese opera, and incense is burned in front of his image before every performance.
First and foremost, all performances emphasize the actor over the sets or props: the actor's entrance sets the stage; his costume and makeup indicate the type of character he is to play; his song begins the tale; his gestures and movements reveal the setting.
