This book describes life in a small village on the outskirts of Beijing. It covers socialization and education, the impact of mechanization amd industrialization, efforts at modernization, and the response of the villagers to political realities in a socialist state. This edition incorporates the recent uprising in China and the tragic events at Tiananmen Square. It describes the outrage expressed by Chinese workers at the rampant inflation and political corruption threatening their livelihood and challenging their sense of social justice, and illustrates how economic and political events of recent years lead to the pro-democratic and anti-corruption protests of 1989.
