Urban Political Transitions under Socialism
The Introduction gives an overall picture of Chengdu--the capital of Sichuan province and one of the major cultural, economic, and political centers in West China, its history, and teahouses. It defines the terms of “public life,” “public space,” and “political culture.” It generalizes the major approaches of studying Chinese urban society under the socialist state. It also evaluates sources produced under communist control such as archival materials and newspapers and discusses the methodologies of field investigation.
