Migration and Urbanization in China

By Lincoln H. Day, Ma Xia, Ma Xia Copyright 1995

    Based upon an analysis of a national survey of migration conducted in late 1986 by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, this book provides analyses of the volume and direction of movement, the characteristics and motivation of those who move, and the consequences of their moving.

    Following China's successful decollectivization, diverse new organizational forms arose in response to different local situations. The contributors dissect the relationships among the emerging class of entrepreneurs, local officials, and their family members and associates.
