Substance:
Concealment has quite broad meaning in social life, but in the domain of Ancient Chinese law, it refers to certain conduct that family members conceal the crime of each other. This kind of rule appeared not only in the codes of pre-modern China, but also in the codes of pre-modern Japan. In the modern times, even under the influence of western legal theory, concealment was still prescribed in Japanese code. But this model of concealment was significantly different from pre-modern ones, and reflects completely different legal conceptions.From the comparison between vicissitudes of Concealment system in Japanese and Chinese law, diverse idea of family and community can be found.
