About this book

Given the dominance of the Chinese state in so many aspects of society, this collection considers factors such as urbanization, the marginalization of social groups, the emergence of the business elites and the dissent of internet users, to resituate understanding of the social challenges facing China.

Reviews

"[The] well-organized chapters offer important perspectives and fresh insights from a number of crucial vantage-points. . .the volume may very well be used as an introductory text in class, but will also be read with much benefit by specialists in the respective sub-fields addressed." - Björn Alpermann, Journal of Chinese Political Science

"It is impossible to understand China's impact on global relationswithout understanding the interplay of the power structures that shape Chinese society. China in an Era of Transition provides important micro-analyses - on topics that range from intellectuals and ethnic minorities, to entrepreneurs and internet bloggers - illuminating the tensions that underlie the Chinese economic juggernaut; and in so doing,shatters the myth of the monolithic and unitary China." - Professor Benjamin Ho, Johnson School of Management, Cornell University

"China in an Era of Transition provides a detailed insight into the different social issues affecting state-society relations since the adoption of market reforms in 1978. The findings throughout the chapters are well-grounded in empirical research and offer the reader a timely understanding of state-society interactions." - Professor Fachun Du, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences
