Caged by Boundaries? Ellipses, , p. Informal Institutions and Rural Development in China. Focusing in particular on three major informal institutions: village trust and Rotating Savings and Credit Associations ROSCAs , guanx i community and Integrating Village with Company IVWC governance, the author argues that informal institutions, traditions and customs are all critical factors for facilitating modernization and social and economic development, promoting the integration of trust, reciprocity, responsibility and obligation into economic and social exchange processes and considerably lowering risks and transactions costs.
Basingstoke, , p. The Chinese government has an ambitious plan to make China a world leader in science and technology by Chinese companies are to become less reliant on foreign technology. Contents : Forward; A. Bai, C. Inseparable Separation. This volume presents a systematic, in-depth study of the evolution of China's Taiwan policy. China has come to prioritize regional stability, prosperity, and strategic international interests over its cross-strait problems.
As a result, while insisting on the domestic nature of the Taiwan issue, Chinese leadership has adopted a pro-status-quo approach toward Taiwan, promoting "peace, stability, and development" rather than striving for "peaceful reunification. The authors argue, however, that in order to stabilize the potentially explosive Taiwan situation, Beijing and Washington must transform this ad hoc pattern of crisis management into a more goal-oriented, strategic management of the status quo. Cambridge, MA, , 8 tables, p. One part riveting account of fieldwork and one part rigorous academic study, Brand New China offers a detailed and up-to-date portrayal of branding and advertising in contemporary China.
She also examines the impact of new media practices on Chinese advertising, deliberates on the convergence of grassroots creative culture and viral marketing strategies, samples successful advertising campaigns, provides practical insights about Chinese consumer segments, and offers methodological reflections on pop culture and advertising research. This book unveils a "brand new" China that is under the sway of the ideology of global partnership while struggling not to become a mirror image of the United States.
Wang takes on the task of showing where Western thinking works in China, where it does not, and, perhaps most important, where it creates opportunities for cross-fertilization. David Kang believes certain preferences and beliefs are responsible for maintaining stability in East Asia. Kang's research shows how East Asian states have grown closer to China, with little evidence that the region is rupturing.
Rising powers present opportunities as well as threats, and the economic benefits and military threat China poses for its regional neighbors are both potentially huge; however, East Asian states see substantially more advantage than danger in China's rise, making the region more stable, not less. Furthermore, although East Asian states do not unequivocally welcome China in all areas, they are willing to defer judgment regarding what China wants and what its role in East Asia will become.
They believe that a strong China stabilizes East Asia, while a weak China tempts other states to try to control the region.

Rethinking Mao offers an innovative perspective on the thought of Mao Zedong, the major architect of the Chinese Revolution and leader of the People's Republic of China until his death in Utilizing a number of recently discovered documents written by Mao, Nick Knight "rethinks" Mao by subjecting a number of controversial themes to fresh scrutiny. This book provides a sophisticated analysis of Mao's views on the role of the peasants and working class in the Chinese revolution, his theoretical attempt to make Marxism appropriate to Chinese conditions, and his understanding of the Chinese road to socialism.
Knight includes a discussion of the theoretical difficulties in interpreting Mao's thought. Rethinking Mao represents a challenge to many of the conventional accounts of Mao and his thoughts. Bern, , p. Hong Kong U. This book presents a comprehensive and systematic analysis of the main strands of continuity and change during the period. It looks first at the core institutions of the SAR, focusing on the executive, legislature, judiciary, civil service, District Councils, and advisory and statutory bodies.
It then turns to supporting structures in the wider society, paying particular attention to political parties and elections, civil society and NGOs, and mass media and public opinion.

In , a Chinese woman by the name of Shi Jianqiao murdered the notorious warlord Sun Chuanfang as he prayed in a Buddhist temple. This riveting work of history examines this well-publicized crime and the highly sensationalized trial of the killer.
Lean traces the rise of a new sentiment —"public sympathy" — in early twentieth-century China, a sentiment that ultimately served to exonerate the assassin. The book sheds new light on the political significance of emotions, the powerful influence of sensational media, modern law in China, and the gendered nature of modernity.
Based on fieldwork and extensive interviews in Chinese textile, apparel, machinery, and household appliance factories, Against the Law finds a rising tide of labor unrest mostly hidden from the world's attention. Providing a broad political and economic analysis of this labor struggle together with fine-grained ethnographic detail, the book portrays the Chinese working class as workers' stories unfold in bankrupt state factories and global sweatshops, in crowded dormitories and remote villages, at street protests as well as in quiet disenchantment with the corrupt officialdom and the fledgling legal system.
Traduit de l'anglais par Charles Le Blanc. Basingstoke, Forthcoming , p. Leibold traces the political and cultural strategies employed by Han Chinese elites in the process of incorporating, both discursively and physically, the diverse inhabitants of the last Qing dynasty into a new, homogenous national com- munity. A History of the Modern Chinese Army Lexington, , index, bibliography, 14 maps, 30 photos, p. In this book, Li Xiaobing, a former member of the People's Liberation Army, provides a comprehensive examination of the PLA from the Cold War up to now that highlights the military's central function in modern Chinese society.
Grounding the text in previously unreleased official Chinese government and military records as well as the personal testimonies of more than two hundred PLA soldiers, Li charts the development of China's armed forces against the backdrop of Chinese society, cultural traditions, political history, and recent technological advancements. Drawing on a wealth of secondary theoretical material as well as her own original research, Sylvia Li-chun Lin conducts a close analysis of the political, narrative, and ideological structures involved in the fictional and cinematic representations of the 28th of February Incident and White Terror.
She assesses the role of individual and collective memory and institutionalized forgetting, while underscoring the dangers of re-creating a historical past and the risks of trivialization. She also compares her findings with scholarly works on the Holocaust and the aftermath of the atomic bombings of Japan, questioning the politics of forming public and personal memories and the political teleology of "closure. Private Enterprises and China's Economic Development. Private enterprises have contributed significantly to China's recent economic growth and will play a key role in achieving China's goal of building a comprehensively well-society.
But how can private enterprises help China mitigate its macroeconomic problems such as unemployment, income inequality, financial disintermediation, and an unhealthy economic cycle? And what are the main obstacles to private enterprise development? This book answers these questions by identifying the range of cultural, political and financial challenges confronting China's private enterprises, and assessing their performance and potential. Contributors also analyse the experiences and lessons of other countries, and propose strategies and policies to help China promote private enterprise development.
Berkeley, , notes, bibliography, index, p. This book explores the religious renaissance, largely ignored in the West, that has reformed, revitalized, and renewed these practices of Buddhism and Daoism in Taiwan. Democracy's Dharma connects these noteworthy developments to Taiwan's transition to democracy and the burgeoning needs of its new middle classes. In appealing and accessible prose, Richard Madsen offers fresh thinking on Asian religions and shows that the public religious revival was not only encouraged by the early phases of the democratic transition but has helped to make that transition successful and sustainable.
Cambridge, Polity Political Profiles S. Les Indes savantes, , p. Ithaca, , p. Conservative Thought in Contemporary China. New York, , bibliography, index, p. This book examines the evolution of conservative politics in China, which has become increasingly present following the death of Mao Zedong in Peter Moody traces the roots of conservatism through the imperial system, the Republican period, and the pre-Cultural Revolution People's Republic, all of which influence contemporary Chinese politics. The most direct programmatic form of conservativism has been neo-conservativism politics, which formed during the Jiang Zemin regime and persists to the present age in a diluted version.
This book demonstrates that conservative thought is a consequence of relatively broad cultural and economic liberty, China's resentment of American arrogance, and a fear of the social turmoil generated as a by-product of liberal economic reforms. Moody critically analyzes the influence of antipolitics and traditional values on the current ideology of Chinese politicians and citizens.
This book is a social history of the qigong craze which swept urban socialist China in the post-Mao era, leading to the emergence of Falun Gong and its subsequent repression. How could a system of body, breath and mental training exercises, initially promoted by senior Communist Party leaders as a uniquely Chinese healing tradition and as the harbinger of a future scientific revolution, become an outlet for a mass expression of religiosity which was then ruthlessly crushed by the Chinese state?
Tracing the complex relations between the masters, officials, scientists, practitioners, and ideologues involved with the qigong movement, the book combines historical, anthropological, and sociological approaches to describe a critical phase in the reinvention of Chinese tradition in its encounter with modernity and the state. This thoroughly researched study provides an invaluable account of Hong Kong's political evolution from its founding as a British colony to the present.
Bringing a balanced view to her often contentious subject, the author places Hong Kong's current partisan debates between democrats and their opponents within the context of China's ongoing search for a viable political form. The book considers Beijing's increasing intervention in local affairs and focuses on the challenge for Hong Kong's democratic reformers in an environment where ultimate political power resides with the communist-led mainland government and its appointees.
Cambridge, MA, , p. Stephen Platt offers the first comprehensive study of why Hunan province gave rise to so many reformers, military officers, and revolutionaries. Covering a span of eight decades, this book portrays three generations of Hunanese scholar-activists who held their provincial loyalties above their allegiances to a questionable Chinese empire. The renaissance of Hunan centered around the revival of Wang Fuzhi, a local hermit scholar from the seventeenth century whose iconoclastic writings were deemed a remarkable match for "Western" ideas of progress, humanism, and nationalism.
Advocates of reform and revolution thus framed their projects as the continuance of a local tradition--the natural destiny of the Hunanese people--creating a tradition of reform and nationalism that culminated in the s with a Hunanese independence movement led by the young Mao Zedong. Going to School in East Asia. Westport, , p. Education in east Asia varies widely, due to the cultural and political histories of each country.
The communist governments of China, North Korea, and Vietnam mandate schooling differently from the limited democracy of Hong Kong and the parliamentary government of Japan. The history of the educational philosophies, systems, and curricula of seventeen East Asian countries are described here, with a timeline highlighting educational developments, and a special "day in the life" feature, a personal account of what it is like for a student to attend school in that country. Champaign, , 31 photog. Some two thousand women participated in the Long March, but their experience of this seminal event in the history of Communist China is rarely represented.
In Choosing Revolution , Helen Praeger Young presents the oral histories of twenty-two women veterans of the Red Army's legendary six-thousand-mile "retreat to victory" before the advancing Nationalist Army. In addition to their riveting stories of the march itself, Young's subjects reveal much about what it meant to grow up female and, in many cases, poor in China during the first decades of the twentieth century.

Addressing all the critical factors is complex and requires long-term commitment. This book highlights several key issues that need to be addressed decisively in the second half of this decade, through policies entailing institutional reform, to trigger broader changes. Drawing on background papers by Chinese researchers, the study provides a variety of domestic perspectives and local case studies and combines these perspectives with international experiences on how similar issues may have been addressed in other countries.
The Future of Chinese Capitalism. Oxford, , p. Building on recent conceptual and empirical advances, and rich in concrete examples, this book offers a comprehensive and systematic exploration of present-day Chinese capitalism, its component parts, and their interdependencies. It suggests that Chinese capitalism, as practiced today, in many respects represents a development from traditional business practices, whose revival has been greatly aided by the influx of investments and managerial talent from the Regional Ethnic Chinese.
On the basis of present trends in the Chinese economy as well as through comparison with four major types of capitalism -those of Germany, Japan, Korea, and the United States- the book derives a prediction of the probable development paths of Chinese capitalism and its likely competitive strengths and weaknesses. La protection juridique des inventions dans les relations commerciales entre la France et la Chine. Princeton, , 18 tables, p. Although China's economy has grown spectacularly over the last twenty-five years, economists disagree about how the Chinese economy is likely to fare in the short- and long-term future.
Is China's growth sustainable, or has China relied too much on investment, which is subject to diminishing returns, and not enough on technological change? The first book on the relation between investment, finance, and growth in China, How China Grows dismisses this concern. James Riedel, Jing Jin, and Jian Gao argue that investment has not only been the engine of growth, but also the main source of technological progress and structural change in China.
What threatens future growth instead, the authors argue, are the weaknesses of China's financial system that undermine efficiency in investment allocation. Financial-sector reform and development are necessary, not only for sustaining long-term growth, but also for maintaining macroeconomic stability. Durham, , p. Drawing on her research over the past two decades among urban residents and rural migrants in Hangzhou and Beijing, Lisa Rofel analyzes the meanings that individuals attach to various public cultural phenomena and what their interpretations say about their understandings of post-socialist China and their roles within it.
She locates the first broad-based public debate about post-Mao social changes in the passionate dialogues about the popular television soap opera Yearnings. Armonk, , illust.

For the first time in one place, hundreds of published estimates of Chinese genocide and mass murder are listed with sources, analyzed, and their historical context presented. Autrement, , 79 p. Cartographie de Madeleine Benoit-Guyot. The key challenges facing China in the next two decades derive from the ongoing process of urbanization. How China copes with such a large migration flow will strongly influence rural-urban ine- quality, the pace at which urban centers expand their eco- nomic performance, and the urban environment.
Contents : Part 1: 1. What kind of superpower will China become, cooperative or aggressive? In this book, Susan Shirk, a former U. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State responsible for China, opens up the black box of Chinese domestic politics and reveals a fragile communist regime struggling to survive in a society turned upside down by economic growth and open markets. She argues that the West's greatest danger is not China's economic or military strength but its internal fragility.
She makes the case that it is usually rising powers that provoke wars, and unless Western states understand the fears that motivate Chinese leaders, they are likely to misread and mishandle China - and find themselves in an avoidable international conflict. Paying for Progress in China is a collection of essays which trace the causes of these growing inequalities, using new data including surveys, interviews, newly available official statistics and in-depth fieldwork.

This study considers the institutional evolution and progress of village elections in China. This book studies the creation and evolution of democratic institution of village election. It examines the causes of village election, the making of state and provincial election legislation, state implementation and improvement of village election rules and procedures, and the role of domestic and foreign players in influencing electoral institutionalization of village self-governance, and it assesses the impact of village election on Chinese political development.
It argues for the institutional buildup of democratic infrastructures to ensure what could eventually be the beginning of a more extensive move towards democracy. Armonk, , bibliography, index, p. This book launches an ambitious reexamination of the elite politics behind one of the most remarkable transformations in the late twentieth century. As the first part of a new interpretation of the evolution of Chinese politics during the years , it provides a detailed study of the end of the Maoist era, demonstrating Mao's continuing dominance even as his ability to control events ebbed away.
The tensions within the gang of four, the different treatment of Zhou Enlai and Deng Xiaoping, and the largely unexamined role of younger radicals are analyzed to reveal a view of the dynamic of elite politics that is at odds with accepted scholarship. The authors draw upon newly available documentary sources and extensive interviews with Chinese participants and historians to develop their challenging interpretation of one of the most poorly understood periods in the history of the People's Republic of China.
Riveneuve, , p. S, , p. Sommaire : On a Slippery Roof. This second volume of Critical Zone consists of two parts. The first part includes original essays that deal with the concept and practice of "empire" as a collective response to the question of how imperial formations and operations, in the past and at present, should be examined in a larger context of international politics and how historical imperialism may be considered in relation to the conditions of our time. Part II includes two sets of translations of essays, first published in Chinese, about two recent debates in China: one on the canonicity of Lu Xun and the other on the problem of how to reform Peking University in the context of globalization.
These two groups of translations are led by review essays that contextualize the debates. A Geography of China. Piscataway, , over plates, maps, and diagrams, glossary, bibliography, index, p.
When this book was originally published in the s, China was beginning to change with breathtaking rapidity. These changes are presented here against geographical and historical background. Knowledge of the environmental facts is essential to an appreciation of the political, economic, and social problems that have faced the Chinese people. The book has been arranged in four sections: Physical, Historical, Economic, and Regional.
Such a treatment necessarily involves some repetition but this, in some ways, is an advantage as it serves to emphasize the fact that the sections are themselves very closely interlocked. No apology is needed for including a considerable historical geographical section. The subjects treated under this heading are a few choice plums selected from a basketful of excellent fruit. No attempt has been made at a connected historical surveyor treatment. Courts and Criminal Justice in Contemporary China. This is a study of Chinese judicial power as it is manifested in law-and-order campaigns and shame punishment.
Sue Trevaskes examines today's court practices and their antecedents in China by exploring "law on display" in local court trials, rallies, and campaigns. By emphasizing the justice system of the s it becomes apparent how criminal court practices in this period set the foundation for practices into the Twenty-First Century. Trevaskes argues that many aspects of Chinese law, especially civil and economic law, have developed into modern and sophisticated systems of justice administration, criminal law has not.
Globalization facilitates China's emergence and places Taiwan economy under China's influence. Empirical data confirm that Taiwan's structural weakness compromises its autonomy. Sino-US economic interdependence confines the US from adopting any strategy to protect Taiwan's autonomy. China is the largest recipient of Taiwanese investment.
Flow-on effects determine China's indispensability to Taiwan. Yet, in fear of losing its autonomy to China, Taiwan tries to control the cross-Strait economic exchanges but fails. As Taiwan seeks for independence but China insists on unification, the ideological fight between the two sides is a zero-sum game. The US involvement maintains the cross-Strait status quo, but China's rise will disrupt the balance.
Without political concessions, Taiwan will always live under the Chinese threat. Chine brune ou Chine verte? Presse de Sciences Po, , p. Ce petit ouvrage fait le point des contraintes et des objectifs contradictoires auxquels doit aujourd'hui faire face l'Etat-parti au pouvoir en Chine. Why Taiwan? Stanford, Studies in Asian Security, , p. Why, since the s, has Beijing been feverishly developing means to prevail in combat with the U.
Why is Taiwan worth fighting for? To answer, this book focuses on the territorial dimension of the Taiwan issue and highlights arguments made by PRC analysts about the geostrategic significance of Taiwan, rather than emphasizing the political dispute between Beijing and Taipei. It considers Beijing's quest for Taiwan since against the backdrop of recurring Chinese anxieties about the island's status since the seventeenth century. In recent years, the PRC has become dependent on international maritime commerce and has undertaken to expand considerably its navy to ensure access to the sea.
PRC analysts concerned about strategy have articulated rationales for eliminating rival influences over Taiwan, the location of which is deemed as critical to China's projection of naval power. This book traces the evolution, explains the appeal, and suggests implications of the geostrategic calculations that pervade PRC strategic considerations of Taiwan. If Chairman Mao came back to life today, what would he think of Nanjing's bookstore, the Librairie Avant-Garde, where it is easier to find primers on Michel Foucault's philosophy than copies of the Little Red Book?
What does it really mean to order a latte at Starbucks in Beijing? In these often playful, always enlightening "tales," Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom poses these and other questions as he journeys from 19th-century China into the future, and from Shanghai to Chicago, St. Louis, and Budapest. He argues that simplistic views of China and Americanization found in most soundbite-driven media reports serve us poorly as we try to understand China's place in the current world order—or our own.
The first section underscores the importance of war in China by dealing with the Manchu conquest and military rule over China, the developing technology gap between China and the West, the devastating defeats at the hands of Western powers in the 19th century, and early attempts at military reform and modernization. The second section, Republican China, traces important military reforms that gave rise to a revolutionary movement, the overthrow of the monarchy, and attempts to establish a democratic republic.
The military played a dominant role in the search for a viable, modern political state during this period, which saw intense fighting between independent "warlords," contending political parties that used military force against their rivals, and a Japanese invasion. The third section, People's Republic of China, reveals the critical role of the military and warfare in the period after the Chinese Communist Party came to power.
It explores the Chinese Communist role in the Korean War, border clashes with the Soviet Union, India, and Vietnam, changes in military doctrine, organization, and technology, the People's Liberation Army's violent suppression of the student demonstrations, and the military situation in the Taiwan Straits.
Cook and Jason L. Racing to Integrate, or Cooperating to Compete? Peaceful Rise? Soft Power? Rich with details of everyday life, this multifaceted social and cultural history of China's leading metropolis in the twentieth century offers a kaleidoscopic view of Shanghai as the major site of Chinese modernization. Engaging the entire span of Shanghai's modern history from the Opium War to the eve of the Communist takeover in , Wen-hsin Yeh traces the evolution of a dazzling urban culture that became alternately isolated from and intertwined with China's tumultuous history. Looking in particular at Shanghai's leading banks, publishing enterprises, and department stores, she sketches the rise of a new maritime and capitalist economic culture among the city's middle class.
Making extensive use of urban tales and visual representations, the book captures urbanite voices as it uncovers the sociocultural dynamics that shaped the people and their politics. This work on ethnicity in Asia offers a major sociological analysis of Hui Muslims in contemporary China. Using both qualitative and quantitative data derived from fieldwork in Lanzhou between March and July , it looks at the contrast between the urban life of the Han people, the ethnic majority in the city of Lanzhou, and the Hui people, the largest ethnic minority in the city, and assesses the link between minority ethnicity and traditional behaviour in urban sociology and research on ethnic groups of China.
In-depth interviews and survey data provides a fresh perspective to the study of ethnic behaviour in China, and offers a rich account of Hui behaviour in seven aspects of urban life: neighbouring interaction, friendship formation, network behaviour, mate selection methods, spouse choice, marital homogamy, and household structure. Aldershot, , 30 tables, 20 figures, p. Cook and Trevor J. Logiques sociales, , p. Stanford, , 22 tables, p. This study argues that the Internet has brought about new dynamics of socio-political changes in China, and that state power and social forces are transforming in Internet-mediated public space.
Its findings are fourfold. First, the Internet empowers both the state and society. The Internet has played an important role in facilitating political liberalization, and made government more open, transparent, and accountable. Second, the Internet produces enormous effects which are highly decentralized and beyond the reach of state power. Third, the Internet has created a new infrastructure for the state and society in their engagement with and disengagement from each other.
Fourth, the Internet produces a recursive relationship between state and society. The interactions between the state and society over the Internet end up reshaping both the state and society. Etudes chinoises vol. XXVI Wiesbaden, , p. The contributions progress from the general to the particular, the first contribution, above all, taking a broad perspective, intended as a general outline of the political and economic history of this macro-region.
Gary Tiedemann eds. The Boxers, China and the World. Cambridge, MA, , index, p. The first narrative history of the Jesuits' mission from until the proscription of Christianity in China in , this study is also the first to use extensive documentation of the enterprise found in Lisbon and Rome.
The peril of travel in the premodern world, the danger of entering a foreign land alone and unarmed, and the challenge of understanding a radically different culture result in episodes of high drama set against such backdrops as the imperial court of Peking, the villages of Shanxi Province, and the bustling cities of the Yangzi Delta region. Further scenes show how the Jesuits claimed conversions and molded their Christian communities into outposts of Baroque Catholicism in the vastness of China.
From the late seventeenth through the early twentieth century, Sibao western Fujian was home to a flourishing publishing industry. Through itinerant booksellers and branch bookshops managed by Sibao natives, this industry supplied much of south China with cheap educational texts, household guides, medical handbooks, and fortune-telling manuals. In a study with important implications for cultural and economic history, Cynthia Brokaw describes rural, lower-level publishing and bookselling operations at the end of the imperial period. Commerce in Culture traces how the poverty and isolation of Sibao necessitated a bare-bones approach to publishing and bookselling and how the Hakka identity of the Sibao publishers shaped the configuration of their distribution networks and even the nature of their publications.
Sibao's industry reveals two major trends in print culture: the geographical extension of commercial woodblock publishing to hinterlands previously untouched by commercial book culture and the related social penetration of texts to lower-status levels of the population. Reconstructing Late Shang practices of authority and their material bases, the author focuses on sacrifice, warfare and burial in their role in the constitution of social identity and hierarchy as intersecting practices of kinship and violence. Based on these analyses he argues that the Late Shang world was ceaselessly ordered through domesticating practices based on communal violence, ancestral construction and sacrifice, recursively re producing, through differential participation in these practices a hierarchy of being that stretched from sacrificial victims to deified ancestors and the high god Di.
Moreover, with place and identity experienced in terms of hierarchical relationships of kinship and patronage, social obligation and political authority were produced through universal participation and investment in a radically inegalitarian social economy of kinship and violence.
An authourized facsimile of a doctoral dissertation submitted to Harvard University. Between and , the Qianlong emperor embarked upon six southern tours, traveling from Beijing to Jiangnan and back. This study elucidates the tensions and the constant negotiations characterizing the relationship between the imperial center and Jiangnan. Politically, economically, and culturally, Jiangnan was the undisputed center of the Han Chinese world.
How did the Qing court constitute its authority and legitimate its domination over this pivotal region? What were the precise terms and historical dynamics of Qing rule over China proper during the long eighteenth century? In the course of addressing such questions, this study also explores the political culture within and through which High Qing rule was constituted and contested by a range of actors, all of whom operated within socially and historically structured contexts. The author argues that the southern tours occupied a central place in the historical formation of Qing rule during a period of momentous change affecting all strata of the eighteenth-century polity.
