Chinese Research Perspectives on Society


Chinese Research Perspectives on Society (CRSO) is the new generation of The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks: Society. 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. CRSO 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 CRSO volumes provide English-speaking readers with firsthand information and insights into China’s top scholars’ discussions on social changes and developments in China. The volumes serve as a rare primary source in English for students, scholars and policy makers who are interested in studying contemporary China.
