Prosperity's Predicament : Identity, Reform, and Resistance in Rural Wartime China Paperback / softback

Edited by Gail Hershatter, Emily Honig

Part of the Asia/Pacific/Perspectives series

Description

This classic in the annals of village studies will be widely read and debated for what it reveals about China's rural dynamics as well as the nature of state power, markets, the military, social relations, and religion.

Built on extraordinarily intimate and detailed research in a Sichuan village that Isabel Crook began in 1940, the book provides an unprecedented history of Chinese rural life during the war with Japan. It is an essential resource for all scholars of contemporary China.
