9780415285650: Unstructuring Chinese Society: The Fictions of Colonial Practice and the Changing Realities of

Unstructuring Chinese Society is a culmination of long term field work and archival research that challenges existing theories of social organisation and cultural change. The book makes new sense of historical contradictions, political conflicts and deep seated social transformations that have underlined the experience of colonial rule and the practices of local institutions in Hong Kong over the past century. By focusing on the ongoing interactions of discourse, practices and global-local relations in cultural terms, Unstructuring Chinese Society puts forth a fresh perspective in the field of historical anthropology, while addressing ongoing critical concerns in postcolonial theory and our understanding of tradition and modernity.

About the Author:

Allen Chun is a Research Fellow in the institute of Ethnology, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. He has held lectureships at the National University of Singapore, the University of California, Berkeley, USA and the Australian National University, and has published widely on nationalism, social theory and cultural identity in East Asia

Review:

Allen Chun has produced an opus that incorporates an impressive grasp of Hong Kong colonial history with ethnographic research in Hong Kong's New Territories. Unstructuring Chinese Society is likely to stimulate considerable discussion.
–Alan Smart of University of Calgary, Canada
