For courses on Modern Chinese History, Politics, Society, and Culture; a supplement for courses on East Asian civilization, World History and Civilization. Unlike other texts on modern Chinese history-which tend to be so encyclopedic as to be difficult to use in the classroom, or too pedantic to keep students' interest-this text is usably comprehensive, focused on "cutting edge" interpretations, and written in a style that engages students from beginning to end. It uses the theme of identities-of the nation itself and of the Chinese people-to probe the vast changes that have swept over China from late imperial times to the beginning of the twenty-first century. In so doing, it explores the range of identities China has chosen over time and those that outsiders have bestowed upon China and its people-showing how, as China rapidly modernizes, the issue of Chinese identity in the modern world looms large.

    Identity是本書的主旨,個體通過社會網絡(家庭、社群、職業、籍貫、地理位置、政經、文化等)中的地位來自我定義或被定義,並獲得身分。身分是歷史的中心,因為個人和國家的行動,是在於他們如何察覺自己、並且如何從這些自我意識中來察覺與誰互動。每個文化都很重視社會連結,但中國文化將之推於極限,是實際的社會真實存在,而且中國社會就是從五倫出發的同心圓式社會結構,這樣的社會現實使中國社會生活充滿流動性,不只是一個人的社會位置決定了他的關係,而且也決定了他如何對待他人,以及他人如何對待自己。一旦一個人因被 ...(continue)

    Identity是本書的主旨,個體通過社會網絡(家庭、社群、職業、籍貫、地理位置、政經、文化等)中的地位來自我定義或被定義,並獲得身分。身分是歷史的中心,因為個人和國家的行動,是在於他們如何察覺自己、並且如何從這些自我意識中來察覺與誰互動。每個文化都很重視社會連結,但中國文化將之推於極限,是實際的社會真實存在,而且中國社會就是從五倫出發的同心圓式社會結構,這樣的社會現實使中國社會生活充滿流動性,不只是一個人的社會位置決定了他的關係,而且也決定了他如何對待他人,以及他人如何對待自己。一旦一個人因被逐出、失去工作、失去資格或死亡等,他多年來所建立、培養的關係也就沒了,而必須另起爐灶。「發展與培養個人的關係是一輩子的事業,也確保了個人得以有個社會身分。」至於那些沒有社會連結的人,則被冠上負面的身分:外人、異己、他者。
    除了承接作者關於「沈定一」此一成名著的研究案例外,又重新介紹Skinner區域地理的概念。
