A sociology of modern China by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

29 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Louis Rocca's admirably concise A Sociology of Modern China wears its scholarship lightly and paints an intimate and complex portrait of Chinese society, all the while avoiding clichés and simplifications. He delves into China's history and examines the country's many different social strata so as to better understand the enormous challenges and opportunities with which its people are confronted. After discussing the long march toward reform and the crises along the way - among them the 1989 protests which culminated in the events in Tiananmen Square and elsewhere - Rocca dedicates the second half of the book to the major questions facing the country (or, at the very least, its political elites) today: new forms of social stratification; the interaction between the market and the state; growing individualism; and the pressures exerted by social conflict and political change. In eschewing culturalist visions, Rocca thoroughly and successfully deconstructs received wisdom about Chinese society to reveal a thriving nation and its people."--Publisher's description
The making of the Chinese middle class : small comfort and great expectations by Jean-Louis Rocca( )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and German and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the making of the Chinese middle class that started in the 1990s using a constructivist approach. With the development of the Chinese economy, a new group of middle wage earners appeared. Chinese social scientists and state institutions promoted the idea that China needs a middle class to achieve modernization. Middle class members are defined--and define themselves--as good consumers, educated people, politically engaged but reasonable citizens. As such, the making of the middle class is the result of three convergent phenomena: an attempt to define the middle class, a process of civilization, and the development of protest movements. The making of the Chinese middle class, Rocca argues, is a way to end the stalemate that modern Chinese society is facing, in particular the necessity to democratize without introducing an election system
Politics in China : moving frontiers by Françoise Mengin( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faced with the usual list of paradoxes that plague our views of China: it is a communist regime with a capitalist economy; an authoritarian state with an entrepreneurial spirit; a unified nation with tendencies toward fragmentation, the contributions to this volume work to go beyond them and to seek new paths to understanding China. To do so, the essays avoid the conventional approaches toward Chinese politics that focus on either evolutionist (culturally bound) or functionalist (role bound) issues. Rather than separate state from society, these essays explore how the interweaving of these different spheres creates a hazy border between them. The contributors explore the moving frontiers between other spheres as well, such as rural and urban populations, internal evolution and external influence, and money and politics. This book does not aim to offer a new framework of analysis for understanding Chinese politics, but to open up new directions for research and study on the topic. The internationally diverse scholars in this volume offer readers an intriguing look at the present and future of China research
La condition chinoise : capitalisme, mise au travail et résistances dans la Chine des réformes by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in French and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Chine est un géant qui déroute. Elle jouit des bienfaits d'une économie florissante, mais ne répondrait pas aux normes du marché. Son système politique serait archaïque, corrompu, voire inefficace, et néanmoins capable d'assurer un minimum d'ordre et de stabilité. Des styles de vie "modernes" émergent, mais les logiques "communautaires" continueraient à dominer l'espace sociale. Fort de longues années de recherches sur le terrain, l'auteur s'interroge sur les pratiques sociales des Chinois eux-mêmes

La Chine en mouvements by Emilie Frenkiel( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Censure, arrestations, hypercroissance, pollution, corruption, instabilité sociale, maintien du parti unique : la République populaire de Chine est souvent présentée sous les traits d'un pays certes plus puissant et plus prospère, mais aussi plus agressif et répressif que jamais. Cet ouvrage a pour objectif de remettre en cause les paradigmes qui contribuent à cette vision manichéenne de la société chinoise. À travers quelques phénomènes récents, le développement du journalisme d'investigation, l'essor des ONG, la protestation sociale, l'évolution de la politique de l'enfant unique, le rôle joué par Internet il donne l'image d'une société complexe, dynamique et néanmoins traversée par des contradictions lourdes d'incertitude. Dans ce cadre, le destin de la Chine ne dépend ni de l'influence d'une culture supposée éternelle, ni de lois historiques supposées incontournables, mais de la façon dont évolueront ces contradictions

La corruption by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aucun pays n'est épargné par la corruption. Mais est-elle toujours négative ou se substitue-t-elle parfois avec profit aux carences de l'Etat? Ce livre fait le point sur un débat en cours depuis les années 60 à travers des exemples choisis en Amérique latine, en Afrique ou en Asie. Il recense les politiques de lutte contre la corruption

La société chinoise vue par ses sociologues : migrations, villes, classe moyenne, drogue, sida by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre permet de comprendre autrement la société chinoise, dans une perspective nettement non normative et sur des sujets peu abordés jusqu'ici. Il ne s'agit pas de mesurer l'évolution de la Chine vers l'économie de marché, l'État de droit ou la démocratie, bref de saisir la Chine par sa « transition » mais au contraire d'analyser comment les normes sociales se construisent. L'objectif est de montrer que la compréhension de la société chinoise ne passe pas par une opposition entre « pensée occidentale » et pensée « chinoise » mais par l'utilisation des outils des sciences sociales. Document sur la sociologie chinoise destiné à montrer comment les chercheurs travaillent aujourd'hui, ce livre rassemble dix analyses au cœur des réalités chinoises : les migrations ville-campagne, la classe moyenne, la drogue et le sida, la recherche... et s'appuient sur des travaux de terrain de première main. Il s'agit enfin d'une collaboration exemplaire, menée au sein des Ateliers franco-chinois en sciences sociales de Pékin, fruit d'un dialogue nourri entre ces sociologues chinois venus d'horizons divers et une équipe de jeunes sinologues chargés des traductions
La délinquance juvénile et le contrôle social dans la Chine urbaine : 1976-1985 by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SINCE 1976, CHINESE SOCIETY HAS UNDERGONE SOME DEEP CHANGES WHICH LED TO THE APPEARANCE OR THE WORSENING OF SOCIAL PROBLEMS. THE MOST SPECTACULAR ONE IS THE INCREASE OF DELINQUENCY. A LARGER FREEDOM OF THE PRESS AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ALLOWS TO TACKLE THIS SOCIAL PHENOMENON, ESPECIALLY IN RELATION WITH THE PRESENT DEVELOPMENT OF SOCIAL CONTROL. JUVENILE DELINQUENCY REPRESENTS ABOUT 80% OF THE WHOLE CRIMINALITY. IN THAT POPULATION WE CAN NOTIVE A CLEAR TENDENCY TO THE LOWERING OF THE AGE OF THE FIRST OFFENCE AND A WORSENING OF CRIMES. ROBBERY REMAINS THE MOST COMMON OFFENCE, BUT THE WHOLE CRIMINAL TYPOLOGY IS REPRESENTED. COLLECTIVE CRIMINALITY IS WIDESPREAD. AFTER 1949, THE SOCIAL CONTROL WORKED ON THE BASIS OF A VERY TIGHT SUPERVISION OF A POPULATION SETTLED IN A DEFINITE PLACE. THE POLICE HELD SIMULTANEOUSLY ALL REPRESSIVE FUNCTIONS OF DEVIANT BEHAVIOURS. SINCE 1977, SOCIAL CHANGES HAVE LED TO A SLACKENING OF CONTROLS EVEN THOUGH A JUDICIAL SYSTEM HAS NOT BEEN PUT IN PLACE. THE INCREASE OF JUVENILE DELINQUENCY IS THE RESULT OF A GAP BETWEEN THE HOPES WHICH THE ECONOMICAL DEVELOPMENT HAVE SPREAD AMONG THE YOUTH AND THE WEAKNESS OF THIS DEVELOPMENT
Essor économique et pouvoir politique en Chine by Jean-Louis Rocca( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adepte désormais de l'"économie socialiste de marché", la Chine connaît des taux de croissance à deux chiffres. Cet essor se fonde sur le dynamisme d'un secteur collectif prépondérant et sur l'ouverture aux investissements étrangers ainsi que sur le concours très actif de la diaspora.Le capitalisme chinois ignore la séparation entre la sphère politique et le monde des affaires, il s'accompagne aussi d'une corruption effrénée, génératrice de tensions sociales grandissantes.L'incivisme, l'augmentation des inégalités et, aspect plus inquiétant encore, les écarts de développement opposant les régions affaiblissent le pouvoir central

Grandir aux marges de Shanghai : une sociologie du statut d'âge à l'aune de la condition des enfants de migrants ruraux en Chine by Camille Salgues( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contemporary mass migration of Chinese rural workers involves a large number of children, living with their parents in urban centers. Those children face various difficulties, including access to school. This dissertation deals with both thei everyday life and the debates over their situation within China, in the first decade of the 21 st century. It brings together a content analysis of Chinese articles and an ethnography that took place in a run-down neighborhood located at the margin of Shanghai. At the public level, the analysis highlights the rise of a politics of compassion which is rather new in China. By contrast, at the ground level, there is an institutional vacuum. Nevertheless, the ethnography breaks away from the low self-esteem narrative that surrounds these minors, and shows how these children overcome a number of obstacles to live their lives in the full: how they find materials in school and in friendships to build their identity, like other children do, despite an institutional and relational fragility; how they manage to have fun and to organize games in a harsh environment; how they negotiate their place in the town alongside other categories of people. Particular attention has been paid to the challenging question of how the sociology of childhood can accurately describe such precarious lives as those of the rural migrants' children. The author outlines the importance of thinking together one's social position and one's status regarding one's age. "Age status", defined as the fact that you are an adult or a chile appears as the product of a structural logic, comparable in its importance and magnitude to gender, class or ethnicity
