Editorial Reviews

"[An] excellent synthesis of the important but complex monographic and periodical literature so crucial to grasping China's social and economic history....A valuable complement to the more traditional politically-oriented textbooks. I am pleased that this useful book came to my attention intime for my course in Chinese history next semester."--Oliver Hayward, University of Wisconsin, Parkside
