Marriage and inequality in Chinese society by Rubie S Watson( )

7 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 2,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until now our understanding of marriage in China has been based primarily on observations made during the twentieth century. The research of ten eminent scholars presented here provides a new vision of marriage in Chinese history, exploring the complex interplay between marriage and the social, political, economic, and gender inequalities that have so characterized Chinese society
Chinese families in the post-Mao era by Conference on Family Strategies in Post-Mao China( )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How have the momentous policy shifts that followed the death of Mao Zedong changed families in China? What are the effects of the decollectivization of agriculture, the encouragement of limited private enterprise, and the world's strictest birth-control policy? Eleven sociologists and anthropologists explore these and other questions in this path-breaking volume. The essays concern both urban and rural communities and range from intellectual to working-class families. They show that there is no single trend in Chinese family organization today, but rather a mosaic of forms and strategies that must be seen in the light of particular local conditions"--Book cover
Death ritual in late imperial and modern China by James L Watson( )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the late imperial era (1500-1911), China, though divided by ethnic, linguistic, and regional differences at least as great as those prevailing in Europe, enjoyed a remarkable solidarity. What held Chinese society together for so many centuries? Some scholars have pointed to the institutional control over the written word as instrumental in promoting cultural homogenization; others, the manipulation of the performing arts. This volume, comprised of essays by both anthropologists and historians, furthers this important discussion by examining the role of death rituals in the unification of Chinese culture. - Publisher's description

What were the content and perceived function of elementary education? How did civil service examinations represent elite educational ideals?
