Recensies en Artikelen

"This is an engaging anthropological exploration of the rural-urban divide and its focus on hygiene is important as it is a much neglected topic. The book will be of interest to not just China scholars but development studies, cultural studies and related fields too." - Susan Engel, newbooks.asia, read the full review here.

Hygiene, Sociality, and Culture in Contemporary Rural China

The Uncanny New Village

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
This book presents a new perspective on attempts by the contemporary Chinese government to transform the diverse conditions found in countless rural villages into what the state's social welfare program deems 'socialist new villages'. Lili Lai argues that an ethnographic focus on the specifics of village life can help destabilize China's persistent rural-urban divide and help contribute to more effective welfare intervention to improve health and hygienic conditions of village life.
