Living Conditions and Targeted Aiding Mechanisms of the Urban Underclass in China Hardback
by Zhu Li, Mao Feifei
Part of the China Perspectives series
Based on the approaches of questionnaire and interview, this book studies the urban subalterns formed with a considerable scale in China since the 1990s.
By investigating their living status in detail, it depicts the mental conditions, class consciousness, migration, living difficulties and dilemmas of the subaltern class.
It's worth noting that in addition to the group at the bottom of the economic pyramid, this book expands the definition of subaltern by including the deviant underclass.
Then it examines the factors causing the living dilemmas and provides suggestions aiming to mitigate them from the perspective of social succor.
In the last chapter, this book focuses on the theoretical discussions on subaltern studies.
New concepts such as the deviant subaltern group and social vigilance are created, and new theories such as production and transmission mechanism of the subaltern group are put forward.
