about this item

Sociologists and other social scientists show how the revolution and class struggle of the Chinese Communist Party have been replaced with economic development through markets and privatization since the late 1970s. They cover history, dynamics of social stratification and class formation, welfare indexes, the ruling class, middle classes, and working classes. Among their topics are reconfiguring China's class order after the 1949 revolution, the cultural politics of class: workers and peasants as historical subjects, housing China's inequality, China's private entrepreneurs and the Party-state: mutual dependence and political institutionalization, and China's rural migrant workers and labor politics.
