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

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

16 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 452 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

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

19 editions published in 1995 in English and Chinese and held by 357 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

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

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 292 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

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
