Endangered daughters : discrimination and development in Asia by Elisabeth Croll( )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 2,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book asks the controversial question of why millions of girls do not appear to be surviving to adulthood in contemporary Asia. In the first major study available of this sensitive and emotive issue, Elisabeth Croll investigates the extent of discrimination against female children in Asia and shifts the focus of attention firmly from son preference to daughter discrimination." "The book paints a vivid picture of daughter discrimination across Asia today, from excessive child mortality to the withholding of health care and education on the basis of gender. It argues that daughters still cannot substitute for sons and that the increasing availability of sex-identification technologies will serve only to supplement older forms of infanticide and neglect. Startlingly, it reveals that, in China, India and across East and South Asia, daughter discrimination is actually on the increase despite rising economic development, declining fertility and the generally improved status of women." "This compelling account of a phenomenon still hidden and unacknowledged across the world is essential reading for all those interested in gender and children in contemporary society."--Jacket
From heaven to earth : images and experiences of development in China by Elisabeth Croll( )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been written of China's peasant revolution, less has been written on the peasant experience of reform. In From Heaven to Earth Elisabeth Croll examines the images, policies and experiences of development and links the peasants' experience of revolution and reform with their conceptualisations of time and change and examines the new and recent desires which motivate peasant households in China; the new and strenuous demands which are generated by current reforms which allocate new responsibilities to the peasant family; and family strategies evolved by peasant housholds to maximise their resources within the context of reformed rural development. From Heaven to Earth will be of great interest to students, lecturers and professionals in development studies, anthropology, sociology and Chinese Studies
Bush base : forest farm : culture, environment, and development by Elisabeth Croll( )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking a unique anthropological apprach, Bush Base: Forest Farm explores the management of resources in third would development programmes. The contributors, all distinguished anthropologists with practical experience of development projects, focus on the role of human cultural imagination in the use of environmental resources. They challenge the traditional sharp distinction between human settlement and natual environment (farm or camp, forest or bush), and argue that development programmes should place at their centre an appreciation of people's cosmologies and cultural understandin

China's new consumers : social development and domestic demand by Elisabeth Croll( )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mesmerizing potential of 1.3 billion customers has long constituted 'a magic market' for foreign entrepreneurs who once again are queuing to take advantage of China's fast-growing economy and rapidly changing society. Now, to counter a growing reliance on the markets of the world for exports, China's government too has turned to developing its own domestic markets by placing the expansion of domestic demand high on the nation's agenda. This book explores China's consumer revolution over the past three decades and shows a continuing cycle leading to excess supply and disappointing demand at the center of which lies exaggerated expectations of China's new consumers. Elisabeth Croll details the livelihoods and lifestyles of China's new and evolving social categories who, divided by wealth, location and generation, have both benefited from and been disadvantaged by the past two decades of reform and rapid economic growth. Given that consumption is about so much more than shopping and spending, this book focuses on the perceptions, priorities and concerns of China's new consumers which are an essential part of any contemporary narrative about China's domestic market. Documenting the social consequences of several decades of rapid economic growth and the new interest in 'all-round' social development, China's New Consumers will be of value to students, entrepreneurs and a wide variety of readers who are interested in social trends and concerns in China today
Chinese women since Mao by Elisabeth Croll( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 1987 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chinese Women Since Mao is a timely contribution by the well-known writer on China, Elisabeth Croll. In it she examines the repercussions of China's new policies on the role and status of women in post-Mao China. In 1978, the Women's Federation held its long awaited Fourth National Congress which coincided with the launching of the Four Modernizations. Now, more than five years on, Elisabeth Croll examines the effects these policies have had on the productive and reproductive activities of both rural urban women. She carefully analyses the implications for women's economic independence and employment opportunities which have resulted from these new economic strategies, as well as developments in relation to love, marriage, and divorce, and the attempted introduction of the one-child family. Amid a wealth of new data, she also considers the changing image of Chinese women in the media, theatre and literature, and reflects on the implications of the changes for the involvement of women in China's political life."--Publisher's description
The politics of marriage in contemporary China by Elisabeth Croll( Book )

13 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the People's Republic of China the redefinition of the procedures and symbols of marriage formed one of the main means by which the State has attempted to create major changes in the relations between the sexes, the generations and between domestic and kin groups. In this detailed anthropological study, first published in 1981, Dr Elisabeth Croll examines the changes which have taken place with the institution of marriage between the early 1950s and the late 1970s. She observes the changes in the criteria governing choice of spouse, negotiation procedures, the age of marriage and its ritual and ceremonial forms. This book is based on both documentary sources and research visits to the People's Republic. As an anthropological approach to marriage it raises broader conceptual questions on the relations of marriage to kinship structures, and the interaction of economy and ideology in processes of social change

Changing identities of Chinese women : rhetoric, experience, and self- perception in twentieth-century China by Elisabeth Croll( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Chinese and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of Chinese women will strike a chord with readers of Wild Swans and the work of Julia Kristeva. It describes how it actually feels for women to live with the rhetoric of prescribed female qualities, and the gap between that rhetoric and experience. Drawing on vivid self-portraits, personal narratives and remembered moments of girlhood, it describes the changing reality of women's lives during China's republican, revolutionary and reform eras. It looks at how their experience of the Cultural Revolution and other moments of China's history has diverged from the experience of men, and how, today, a new image of 'femininity with Chinese characteristics' is emerging

Feminism and socialism in China by Elisabeth Croll( )

First published in 1978, Feminism and Socialism in China explores the inter-relationship of feminism and socialism and the contribution of each towards the redefinition of the role and status of women in China. In her history of the women's movement in China from the late nineteenth century onwards, Professor Croll provides an opportunity to study its construction, its ideological and structural development over a number of decades, and its often ambiguous relationship with a parallel movement to establish socialism. Based on a variety of material including eye witness accounts, t
