'This first rate collection will be indispensable reading for Scholars of Chinese society. Each of the book's uniformly excellent well-written and substantive chapters open by providing enough historical background onits specific topic to make it comprehensible enough to advanced undergraduates as well as the general informed reader.' - The China Journal

'I would recommend to all serious students who wish to begin studying this country.' - China Perspectives

'Should be read by all serious scholars of contemporary China.' - Asian Affairs

HASH(0x91a0bef4) out of 5 stars Very academic 3 July 2011
By Janet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is written by hardcore academics, for hardcore academics (and for their students). Lots of esoteric sociological/philosophical terms, well-divided into essays by specific subjects. Note two of the quotes that Amazon provides:

'I would recommend to all serious students who wish to begin studying this country.' - China Perspectives

'Should be read by all serious scholars of contemporary China.' - Asian Affairs

The key word is SERIOUS. It is excellent for its purposes, but this is not for a casual reader who wants to learn about Chinese culture and politics.

If you need it for class, then you need it for class (though maybe not really, depending on how your prof runs things), and it's very informative and well-written. You will learn a lot. Otherwise, skip this book.
