With China’s economic boom, continuous political stability, and increasing influence, it is time to ask if the trajectories of the Chinese Revolution--its troubled interaction with the world market, its national independence movements, its pursuit of egalitarianism, communism, and socialism, and its post-socialist reform—could be understood as a meaningful and consistent historical experience. It is important now to see how China’s past efforts have contributed or obstructed its progress since the Qing empire was thrust into the international system of nation-states in the late 19th century. This series aims to place the study of China in the contexts of the international system of nation-states, global capitalist and market expansion, imperialist rivalry, the Cold War, and recent waves of economic globalization. It welcomes analytical attempts to frame intellectual, historical, and cultural analysis conducive to dialectical relations between these categories. Ideas will not be studied in the abstract but be set in motion and intertwined with praxis through analysis of historical contexts and enriched by close analysis of aesthetic texts, such as literature, narratives, and phenomena of everyday life.

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

Editor-in-Chief:
From a tradition of sojourning, Chinese overseas have established communities around the world that have contributed to the development of China as well as of the countries they have made their homes. There has also grown a new consciousness of identity following the emergence of China as a modern state and the expansion of a global economy. This series aims to study the people and institutions that shaped these identities and how these entities interact with other people, institutions, and communities. It seeks to bring together scholarly work that examines the spectrum of historical experiences, the writings that capture the quality of migrant lives, and the manifold responses to changing social environments.

To Confine the Surging Tide from the Outside World, 1901–1937
Author:
In this book, Ying Zhou argues that educational reform filled a critical role in bridging the precarious gap between democratic ideals and political realities in late Qing and Republican China, where institutional change in education and the cultivation of a qualified citizenry were two sides of the same coin in the development of democratic education.

Through a multi-level analysis of the (re)arrangements of national education and teachings of citizenship, Zhou unravels the complex political and educational nexus in China between 1901–1937, where the hope of education was to bring both political modernity and social progress.
Volume Editor:
The rapid marketization of rural labor, agricultural products, and land has dramatically reshaped village life and its structures of governance. This volume, edited by Alexander F. Day, collects twelve key essays translated from Chinese on this transformation of rural society and governance over the past 20 years.

These essays, originally published in the leading Chinese-language journal Open Times (开放时代), cover class differentiation, the atomization of rural society, the hollowing out of rural governance, land transfer, rural activism against marketization, lineage politics, the role of agricultural cooperatives, the transformation of small peasant farmers into wage labor, and the disintegration and expansion of peasant petitioning, all exploring the transformation in rural China during the post-socialist era.

The China Population and Labor Yearbooks have been restructured and renamed as Chinese Research Perspectives on Population and Labor since 2012.

This yearbook, the English version of the Chinese Green Book of Population and Labor (人口与劳动绿皮书), examines current developments in the Chinese demographic transition and its implications, especially for the labor market. Each annual report is a collection of articles written by demographers and economists from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and other leading research institutes, policy think tanks, and universities in China. Several of the articles analyze the results of in-depth and population surveys conducted in recent years, and many of the findings of this research has influenced and continues to influence major government policy decisions made by the Chinese government.

The series published one volume over the last 5 years.
On the thirtieth anniversary of China’s reform and opening we can say with confidence that China has truly established itself. The economic progress achieved over these thirty years of reform and opening is historically unprecedented, not only in China, but in the history of the world, and understanding what has happened in China during this period is the first aim of this series of volumes. These works also aim to draw on the experience of three decades of reform and opening to help map China’s road ahead, and to draw the attention of the world to China’s experience of reform and opening. The world needs not only to understand China but also to make room for China in its understanding of globalization.
Chinese Research Perspectives on Population and Labor (CRPO) is the new generation of The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks: Population and Labor. As with the CASS Yearbooks, the original versions of these volumes are published in China by Social Sciences Academic Press (SSAP) and are edited principally by leading researchers from CASS and other top research institutions and universities. CRPO is one of the four subseries under the Chinese Research Perspectives (CRP) series, with each subseries focused on one of the four subject areas: education, the environment, population and labor, and society. The CRP volumes include English translations of contributions selected from the Chinese CASS Yearbooks. The selection of contributions for the English-language series and the translations of those volumes are supervised by international advisory boards. The CRPO volumes provide English-speaking readers with firsthand information and insights into China’s top scholars’ discussions on current developments in the Chinese demographic transition and its implications, especially for the labor market. The volumes serve as a rare primary source in English for students, scholars and policy makers who are interested in studying contemporary China.
