About this product
- DescriptionBased on ethgraphic fieldwork, this case study examines the impact of ecomic development on ethnic mirity people living along the upper-middle reaches of the Nu (Salween) River in Yunnan. In this highly mountaius, sparsely populated area live the Lisu, Nu, and Dulong (Drung) people, who until recently lived as subsistence farmers, relying on shifting cultivation, hunting, the collection of medicinal plants from surrounding forests, and small-scale logging to sustain their household ecomies. China's New Socialist Countryside explores how compulsory education, conservation programs, migration for work, and the expansion of social and ecomic infrastructure are t only transforming livelihoods, but also intensifying the Chinese Party-states capacity to integrate ethnic mirities into its political fabric and the national industrial ecomy.
