This bestselling introduction to Chinese society uses the themes of resistance and protest to explore the complexity of life in contemporary China. The fully revised third edition adds three new chapters on gender and the family, the reform of the Hukou system and village governance.
A comprehensive resource for undergraduates and specialists, this book draws on perspectives from sociology, anthropology, psychology, history and political science and covers a broad range of issues to challenge conventional images of contemporary Chinese society.
