China's Motor by Hill Gates
Book Description"Gates is a Marxist anthropologist with chutzpah. Best known for her compelling portrayal of contemporary working-class Taiwanese, she considerably broadens and deepens her analysis of China's socioeconomy in this work."-ChoiceThis monumental work reveals the continuities that underlie the changing surface of Chinese life from late imperial days to modern times.
