Twelve articles, ranging from personal on-site observations of early resistance to reform by suburban cadres and peasants in Nanjing to field research in export-oriented communities on the Yangzi River in 1991-92, cover key topics: the responsibility system, privatization and changing property rights, industrialization, social conflict, cadre corruption, urban-rural relations, conflict over land, rural urbanization, and the impact of globalization."@en
