This book looks at how the contract between the Chinese state and its citizens produces ready compliance and apparent support despite the problems of corruption, food scandals, air pollution and the constraints on personal freedom. It explores the ways in which China’s past is presented as both a mandate for political monopoly and a promise of a glorious future. It does so through the voice of China's own people, by exploring the lived experiences of a broad range of her citizens from across a wide range of socio-economic, rural, urban, ethnic and religious backgrounds. The volume aims to use an ethnographic approach to comprehend how Chinese people in the twenty-first century feel about key issues they face at crucial point in the nation's development.

, and production decisions “belong” at the level at which production takes place.’21 Specifically, what would differentiate companies at this level from the next category, cooperatives, is that the state, rather than the workers, would own the means of production and bear all the associated rights and responsibilities.22 Like other system theorists, Nove allowed for privately owned enterprises to remain, but proposed a limit on their scale.
