Summary note:
Tracing China's journey began from exploring rural revolution and reconstitutions of community in South China. Spanning decades of rural-urban divide, it finally uncovers China's global reach and Hong Kong's cross-border dynamics. Helen Siu traverses physical and cultural landscapes to examine political tumults transforming into everyday lives, and fathom the depths of human drama amid China's frenetic momentum toward modernity. Highlighting complicity, Siu portrays how villagers, ubanites, cadres, entrepreneurs, and intellectual -- laden with historical baggage--venture forward. But have they victimized themselves in the process? -- from cover.
