The structure and evolution of Chinese social stratification
There have been two great shifts of power on the world stage during the past five centuries: the rise of Europe following the Industrial Revolution, and the rise of the United States after its Civil War. As we speak, a new power shift is beginning to take shape: the rise of Asia. Leading Asia's charge toward the world's center stage are the reemerging powers of China and India. To answer and adapt to such new challenges, the United States must develop a thorough understanding of the society of China. The Structure & Evolution of Chinese Social Stratification provides detailed analysis critical to understanding the class structure of Chinese society, both pre-1949 and in the post-Mao era. Its explanation of the origin, structure, and evolution of the model will be essential reading material for any introductory student of Chinese society.
