The Politics of Everyday China Paperback / softback

Part of the Pocket Politics series

Paperback / softback


China's rise from the poverty, isolation and stagnation of the 1970s to the world's second largest economy is a transformative event perhaps unequalled in human history.

The world today pays more attention to China, looks to it with more admiration than perhaps any other time.

Yet, this rise also hides many deep-rooted problems and competing ideologies.

Economically, socially and politically China has transformed itself but there is much that remains uncertain.

This book aims to give an insight into China by exploring everyday life for her citizens, in their own voices. Providing both an overview of the political situation and context in China with ethnographic insights, The Politics of Everyday China aims to give both the new student of China and those who have encountered the subject before an insight that goes beyond the usual cliche and surface description. -- .
