9780300125955: Revolution, Resistance, and Reform in Village China (Yale Agrarian Studies Series)

Drawing on more than a quarter century of field and documentary research in rural North China, this book explores the contested relationship between village and state from the 1960s to the start of the twenty-first century. The authors provide a vivid portrait of how resilient villagers struggle to survive and prosper in the face of state power in two epochs of revolution and reform. Highlighting the importance of intra-rural resistance and rural-urban conflicts to Chinese politics and society in the Great Leap and Cultural Revolution, the authors go on to depict the dynamic changes that have transformed village China in the post-Mao era.  

This book continues the dramatic story in the authors’ prizewinning Chinese Village, Socialist State.  Plumbing previously untapped sources, including interviews, archival materials, village records and unpublished memoirs, diaries and letters, the authors capture the struggles, pains and achievements of villagers across three generations of social upheaval.

Review:

"Based on more than two decades of eye-opening interviews with villagers, "Revolution, Resistance, and Reform in Village China" richly illuminates the recent history of rural China."-Jonathan Unger, Director, Contemporary China Centre, Australian National University
." [The authors] have succeeded . in describing the daily experience of villagers in a centralized authoritarian China.'" -- Jonathan Mirsky "New York Review of Books"

." ÝThe authors¨ have succeeded . in describing the daily experience of villagers in a centralized authoritarian China.'" -- Jonathan Mirsky "New York Review of Books"

," [The authors] have succeeded . in describing the daily experience of villagers in a centralized authoritarian China.'"

"Part of a truly major research project...documents in rich detail the human problems that lie behind the standard story of the developments of Chinese national policy."
"This book is an absorbing and finely researched sequel to the authors' now classic Chinese Village, Socialist State.  By carrying their story onwards from the Great Leap down to the reform era, the authors have assured Boss Geng and Wugong village a definitive space in the history of modern China."-Jonathan Spence, Yale University     

"Fifty years from now, scholars and historians will still be reading this volume and its predecessor as the indispensable guides to the lived experience of rural China through the tumultuous years of the twentieth century. It is not even a slight exaggeration to call this a monumental achievement: one accomplished by dint of great patience, great cultural and linguistic knowledge, great respect for their subjects, and an unfailing sense of how to convey the micro-history of world-shaking events. I am in awe . . . and also greatly in their debt."-James C. Scott, Yale University
