This book, first published in 1980, uses a body of original documentary sources (some 5000 district grain price reports) to quantify, in the form of exchange and price zones, the relationships between the exchange markets and the grain markets of ninety district towns in Shensi, a province in China. Through this study there emerges a detailed picture of a near subsistence agricultural economy.
