Abstract:

"In the first half of the twentieth-century, China moved from a millennium of imperial rule to the Communist Party-led People's Republic of China which remains today. 'China in Transformation' argues that this enormously significant period in Chinese history saw wrenching change throughtout Chinese society amounting to a social, cultural and political transformation. This new, fully revised and updated edition takes full advantage of new research and formerly unavailable material to analyse the fascinating processes of revolution, reform, reaction and change in China during the period."--Jacket.
