China consists of an extensive network of small, predominantly agricultural, communities which are undergoing rapid changes during China’s modernization. An understanding of these changing communities is an essential component of the study of contemporary Chinese society. Explore a broad range of topics concerning China’s local communities, including institutions, cultural expressions, daily life, and social problems. With both historical and sociological approaches, explore the power of institutions and the active agency of local people in the process of modernization and community building.
