Chronicles of Contemporary Chinese Social Life includes part of the data collected at the Fudan Data Center for Contemporary Chinese Social Life by Professor Zhang Letian and his team from grassroots society in China, either directly from the owner/author or from collectors who work with the original owner/author. The data is systematic and comprehensive in a self-standing way. All the data that were selected for publication are from a particular rural collective, an urban work-unit, or a residential community and thus reflect the wholeness of the given unit of social life. These data all stretch for a time span of ten years or more, providing enough temporal depth for research and better understanding. These non-aggregated data at the grassroots level systematically reflect the real social life of a particular community over a long time period; they are rich in details for both in-depth case studies and comparative studies. As these kinds of data have never been published before, this publication is truly unique and original.

The targeted readers include China scholars around the world, particularly those whose research focus on contemporary or post-1949 China and/or teaching courses for the same period, graduate students in the same fields for both learning and their own research, and some individuals from the concerned public who want to learn more about Chinese social life by engaging in original and untouched empirical data.
Series Editor:
Reflection in the social sciences is linked to the development of the Western society which saw its birth. The social sciences and humanities have developed very considerably in the last decades in different Asian countries, where both theoretical approaches and theoretical methodologies have been constantly changing. As a result of the circulation and globalisation of knowledge, new centres and new peripheral areas have been formed and new hierarchies have quietly emerged, giving rise in turn to new competitive environments in which innovative knowledge is being produced. The centres in which knowledge in the social sciences and humanities is produced have moved towards Asia. We are entering a new phase of global intellectual life after Western hegemony. The aim of this series is to produce a post-Western space in which knowledge is produced that is both specific and shared and in which theories and methodologies are gathered together on the basis of very different histories and traditions.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Associate Editor Athina Dimitriou.

Submissions of an interdisciplinary nature are strongly encouraged.
Since the end of the late twentieth century, religion in all its varied forms has come to play an increasingly visible and dynamic role in the transformation of Chinese societies. This vitality of religious practice challenges the secularization theories that are at the heart of modern social science and it directs renewed attention to the role of religion throughout Chinese history. This series features monographs and edited volumes investigating the full range of religious practices in all Chinese societies, including Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau, Taiwan, as well as overseas Chinese communities throughout Southeast Asia and elsewhere. It includes research from all disciplines in the social sciences and humanities that describes, documents, and interprets religious practices, beliefs, and the many forms of religious community in Chinese societies.

Growth, Cycles and Crises from 1949 to the Present Day
Chinese economic growth is an extraordinary phenomenon that deserves an original analysis. It is explained here from the origins of the People's Republic to the present day. Original first, because the authors have themselves reconstructed, on the country studied, statistical databases in time series for the stock of physical capital, the stock of human capital, expenditure on research and development, and Gini income inequality index. Original then, because the methodologies used screen a very wide range of theoretical currents: neoclassical, Pickettyan, and Marxist. Original finally, because the most modern tools of statistics and econometrics are mobilized to carry out this research. This book is aimed at economists and an audience with a solid knowledge of economics.
Chinese Research Perspectives (CRP) is the new generation of The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks. The CRP series includes four subseries, each of which is focused on one of the four research areas: Education, the Environment, Population and Labor, and Society. The CRP series includes English translations of contributions selected from the CASS Yearbooks. The Chinese-language CASS Yearbooks, published by Social Sciences Academic Press, are edited principally by leading researchers from CASS and other top research institutions and universities in China. The Yearbooks include up-to-date discussions and critical analyses of China’s top scholars on contemporary issues in their country. The selection of contributions for the English-language series and the translations of those volumes are supervised by international advisory boards. The CRP volumes provide English-speaking readers with rich information and discussions on the developments and challenges in Chinese society and serve as a rare primary source for students, scholars and policy makers who are interested in contemporary China.

This series features research monographs, edited volumes, and translated works that advance understanding of societies in East Asia or of their interaction or comparison with those in other parts of the world. It seeks to go beyond traditional paradigms and notions and presents possibilities for new discourses. The modern era is broadly defined in this series as the period roughly from the fifteenth century onwards. The series welcomes discipline-specific, interdisciplinary, and comparative studies in humanities and social sciences that investigate various aspects of culture and society in the region as well as studies of global historical processes with specific reference to the region.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Stephanie Carta and Masja Horn.
