HistoryHIS 194G China Since the Cultural Revolution: Histories of the Present

Explores the rapid and often destabilizing shifts that have taken place in China since the late 1970s (the reform era), tracing the effects of China's earlier experiment with revolutionary socialism on the market-driven present. Examines how various meanings of reform are negotiated; changes in rural and urban environments; and class, gender, and ethnic differences.
