State and Individual in Inner City Renewal and Urban Social Movement
Author: Yunqing SHI
In Becoming Citizens in China Shi Yunqing describes the two interlinked histories that have made China’s urban and economic miracle: the unfolding of inner city renewal and the production of citizen shaped by the collective rights defence action resulted from demolition and removal projects. She reveals a complex problematic tension on State and the fabric of the Individual in Social Transition in China.

This book is extremely well-documented and produced with abundant empirical materials. In this approach of the State-Individual relationship, Shi Yunqing convincingly elaborates how citizens have been produced in urban social movements against the background of differences between Chinese and Western development histories. The production of citizens in "Chinese-style” produces insightful "located knowledge" and makes a contribution to a new global sociology and more especially to the Post-Western Sociology.

China's Social Media under Xi Jinping
Author: Titus C. Chen
Why has China’s authoritarian government under Xi Jinping retained popular support without political reforms? Drawing on Chinese social media data, in this book Titus C. Chen argues that China’s digital propaganda and information control techniques--the monopolistic exercise of market authoritarianism--have empowered the Xi administration to manipulate public discourse and shape public opinion via social media. Chen argues that these techniques forge a sense of community and unite the general public under the Chinese government, thereby legitimating autocratic rule. By enhancing our understanding of China’s digital ideological statecraft, the book makes a major contribution to the fields of China Studies and Political Communication.
