This introduction to Chinese society uses the themes of resistance and protest to explore the complexity of life in contemporary China. The book draws on perspectives from sociology, anthropology, psychology, history and political science and covers a broad range of issues including women, labour, ethnic conflict and suicide. This new revised edition adds three new chapters on Falun Gong, Christianity and land struggles thus providing a comprehensive resource for both undergraduates and specialists in the field and encouraging the reader to challenge conventional images of contemporary Chinese society.
