Understanding Peasant China


Daniel Little compares the positions of various social scientists regarding debates in China Studies.

Little focuses on four topics: the relative importance of individual rationality and community values in explaining traditional peasant behavior; the role of marketing and transportation systems in Chinese society; the causes of agricultural stagnation in traditional China; and the reasons for peasant rebellions in Qing China.
