Chen Village : Revolution to Globalization, Paperback / softback Book

Chen Village : Revolution to Globalization Paperback / softback


The first two editions of "Chen Village" presented an enthralling account of a Chinese village in the throes of Maoist revolution followed by dramatic changes in village life and local politics during the Deng Xiaoping period.

Now, more than a decade and a half later, the authors have returned to "Chen Village", and in three new chapters they explore astonishing developments.

The once-backwater village is today a center of China's export industry, where more than 50,000 workers labor in modern factories, ruled by the village government.

This new edition of "Chen Village" illuminates, in microcosm, the recent history of rural China up to the present time.
