La société chinoise vue par ses sociologues. Migrations, villes, classe moyenne, drogue, sida

Abstract : This book offers an alternative comprehension of Chinese society, from a markedly unique perspective on subjects rarely penetrated until now. This is no attempt to follow China’s evolution toward a market economy, democracy, or the state of its human rights policy—simply put, to know China by its “transition”—but instead to analyze how its social norms are constructed. The objective is to demonstrate that understanding Chinese society doesn’t happen by examining the tension between “western thought” and “Chinese thought” but through utilizing the tools of the social sciences. A document of Chinese sociology revealing how Chinese researchers work today, this book combines ten inquiries at the heart of Chinese reality: city-country migration, the middle class, drugs and AIDS—the research accompanied by first hand applications to the work of this field. Finally, this is a study of an exemplary collaboration, guided by the Franco-Chinese Social Sciences Workshop in Beijing, fruit fed by the dialogue between these Chinese sociologists coming from diverse horizons and a team of young sinologists in charge of translation.
