Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300054777, Paperback)In this innovative look at several current debates in China studies, Daniel Little investigates the merits of social scientists' hypotheses, reasoning, and explanations. Little focuses on four topics: the relative importance of individual rationality and community values in explaining traditional peasant behavior; the role of marketing and transportation systems in Chinese society; the causes of agricultural stagnation in traditional China; and the reasons for peasant rebellions in Qing China.
