The Chinese cultural revolution as history( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a wide variety of unusual and only recently available sources, this book covers the entire Cultural Revolution decade (1966-76) and shows how the Cultural Revolution was experienced by ordinary Chinese at the base of urban and rural society. The contributors emphasize the complete interaction of state and society during this tumultuous period, exploring the way that events originating at the center of political power changed people's lives and how, in turn, people's responses took the Cultural Revolution in unplanned and unanticipated directions. This approach offers a more fruitful way to understand the Cultural Revolution and its historical legacies. The book provides a new look at the student Red Guard movements, the effort to identify and cultivate potential "revolutionary" leaders in outlying provinces, stubborn resistance to campaigns to destroy the old culture, and the violence and mass killings in rural China
Fractured rebellion : the Beijing Red Guard movement by Andrew G Walder( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fractured Rebellion is the first full-length account of the evolution of China's Red Guard Movement in Beijing, the nation's capital, from its beginnings in 1966 to its forcible suppression in 1968. Andrew Walder combines historical narrative with sociological analysis as he explores the radical student movement's crippling factionalism, devastating social impact, and ultimate failure. --from publisher description

China's transitional economy by Andrew G Walder( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's post-Mao economic reforms have generated and sustained economic growth, unprecedented rises in real income and living standards, and have transformed a long-time insular economy into a major trading nation. China now figures prominently in international policy debates about what is to be done to transform the stagnating economies of Eastern Europe. As a gradual rather than an abrupt transition to the market, with public industry protected rather than subject to privatization, China's reform path has confounded the widespread and deeply held belief that gradual reform and public ownership simply cannot work. The contributions to this volume draw out the policy and theoretical implications of China's transitional economy. They lay out the notable features of China's reform path, analyse the successes and failures of the reform, and discuss whether they can be sustained, or whether the uncertain leadership transition, growing potential for social instability, and continuing problems of unemployment, uprooted rural populations, deepening political corruption, and declining central power point to a future fraught with risk and instability.; After an introduction and overview by the editor, the first two chapters ask whether China enjoyed advantages that may have made its reform path easier than those of Eastern European countries. The next four chapters examine various dimensions of China's economy: agricultural commerce, property rights, foreign trade, and macroeconomic stability. Two subsequent chapters examine the role of political institutions, and the final chapter, synthesising the lessons of China's reforms, critiques the dogmatism of some economic analysis and calls for greater institutional and historical realism

China under Mao : a revolution derailed by Andrew G Walder( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China Under Mao narrates the rise and fall of the Maoist revolutionary state from 1949 to 1976. Andrew G. Walder argues that Mao's China was defined by two distinctive institutions: a Party apparatus that exercised firm discipline over its members; and a socialist economy modeled after the Soviet Union. Although a large bureaucracy had oversight of this authoritarian system, Mao intervened at every turn. The doctrines and political organization that produced Mao's greatest achievements--victory in the civil war, the creation of China's first modern state, a historic transformation of urban and rural life--also generated his worst failures: the industrial depression and rural famine of the Great Leap Forward and the destruction and stagnation of the Cultural Revolution. Misdiagnosing China's problems as capitalist restoration and prescribing continuing class struggle against imaginary enemies, Mao ruined much of what he had built and created no viable alternative"--Provided by publisher

Work and authority in Chinese industry : state socialism and the institutional culture of dependency by Andrew G Walder( )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1983 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the social basis of compliance in authority systems organized in China's primary sector of large, state-owned industrial enterprises. Variation in the degree of employee dependency on the organization for the satisfaction of needs, and superiors' ability to manipulate the extent to which these needs will be satisfied for individuals, is the central determinant of qualitative differences in organized authority systems. Employees in China's large socialist enterprises are unusually

Les spécificités de la transition économique en Chine( )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de "China Quarterly", décembre 1995: l'article rend compte des débats en cours relatifs au caractère graduel ou non des réformes économiques, à la place et au rôle du secteur privé dans l'économie nationale et aux résultats réels des réformes. Il examine également si l'exemple chinois peut servir de modèle pour les autres économies en transition. A cet égard, il rappelle les différences entre les situations de départ sur les plans des structures économiques, de l'existence d'une protection sociale, de la situation au niveau régional et du niveau de centralisme dans le pays. Il rend enfin compte des interrogations soulevées quant au caractère durable de la croissance économique, à la capacité du pouvoir de la gérer, et plus fondamentalement à l'érosion du pouvoir central dans un contexte politique incertain.--SCAD summary
