Overview

This book describes life in a small village within the borders of a large state farm on the outskirts of Beijing. It covers socialization and education, the impact of mechanization and industrialization, efforts at modernization, and the response of the villagers to political realities in a socialist state. This edition incorporates the uprising in China and the tragic events at Tianamen Square.
