Reviews Jie Fan, Thomas Heberer, and Wolfgang Taubmann. Rural China: Economic and Social Change in the Late Twentieth Century. Armonk, New York, and London: M. E. Sharpe, 2006. xv, 352 pp. Hardcover 24.95, isbn 076560889. The book is a result of collaborative research between scholars and research institutions in China and Europe. This is significant in two ways. First, the research project and the publication of its result may provide some kind of direction and framework for future collaborative research. Despite much freedom and accessibility made possible by the Chinese authorities, research on China conducted inside China is still full of difficulties and obstacles, and there is a good discussion of these issues in the first few pages of chapter 3. For this reason alone, the book is valuable in the field. Second, the field of modern and contemporary Chinese studies, especially in social sciences, seems to have been dominated by scholars of Anglo-Saxon background. Some research outcomes in Europe have to be translated in English to reach a larger audience. This, however, is a book written, together with a Chinese scholar, by European scholars in English. The study was carried out as an interdisciplinary research by Jie
