From a unique Global South Political Economy perspective, this volume showcases outstanding works on the economic, social, and political development of China. It covers topics such as the Chinese development model, the evolution of social classes, the country's projection on the global stage, and the recent technological dispute with the United States. It does so by avoiding the trap (particularly perilous in the case of China) of isolating the economy from politics. The authors demonstrate that without understanding the contradictory movements of these two dimensions in their historical evolution, it is impossible to grasp contemporary China.

This translated volume is based on the publication Green Book of Population and Labor (No. 20), originally published in Chinese by the Social Science Academic Press (SASS). The focus of this volume is high-quality employment in China. The topics covered include China’s labor market during the Fourteenth Five-Year Plan; labor supply and demand; the economic impact of consumption among migrant workers; labor supply elasticity and productivity; geographical and structural shifts in job opportunities; and the educational profiles and income distribution among migrants. The final chapter discusses the opportunities and challenges associated with the rapid development of AI and robotics.

This volume explores cross-generic analysis as a hermeneutic approach to traditional Chinese literature through nine case studies, which cover a combined temporal span from the tenth to the twentieth century.
The contributors examine connections, parallels, and dialogic relations among canonical literary forms and other kinds of materials, both diachronically and synchronically, across and within texts, and between different modes of representation. A wide range of theoretical issues are elucidated, including cultural memory, gender, sexuality, visuality, theatricality, and regional identity. Expanding conventional understanding of what constitutes the literary, these studies also complicate and contribute to intellectual discourses beyond China studies.
