Changing State-society Relations In Contemporary China, Hardback Book

Changing State-society Relations In Contemporary China Hardback

Edited by Wei (Nus, S'pore) Shan, Lijun (South China Univ Of Technology, China) Yang


This book attempts to provide an overview of social and political changes in Chinese society since the global financial crisis.

Rapid economic development has restructured the setup of society and empowered or weakened certain social players.

The chapters in this book provide an updated account of a wide range of social changes, including the rise of the middle class and private entrepreneurs, the declining social status of the working class, as well as the resurgence of non-governmental organisations and the growing political mobilisation on the internet.

The authors also examine the implications of those changes for state-society relations, governance, democratic prospects, and potentially for the stability of the current political regime.
