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.

Author: Uno Kōzō
Editor / Translator: Ken C. Kawashima
Uno Kōzō’s Theory of Crisis presents an unparalleled and systematic demonstration of the necessity of crisis under the capitalist mode of production. Based on a radical re-interpretation of Marx’s Capital, Uno’s theory of crisis emphasizes “excess capital alongside surplus populations” and “the commodification of labour power” at the heart of Marx’s theory of crisis, and additionally provides a concise overview of capitalist crises from the stage of mercantilism to the imperialist stage of capitalism. Included are two Appendix essays by Uno, which disentangle theoretical difficulties related to the theory of crisis in Marx’s Capital; and three original and contemporary essays by Professors Makoto Itoh, Ken Kawashima, and Gavin Walker.
