|Fanshen: A Documentary of Revolution in a Chinese Village by William Hinton|
More than forty years after its initial publication, William Hinton‚Äôs Fanshen continues to be the essential volume for those fascinated with China‚Äôs revolutionary process of rural reform and social change. A pioneering work, Fanshan is a marvelous and revealing look into life in the Chinese countryside, where tradition and modernity have had both a complimentary and caustic relationship in the years since the Chinese Communist Party first came to power. It is a rare, concrete record of social struggle and transformation, as witnessed by a participant. Fanshen continues to offer profound insight into the lives of peasants and China‚Äôs complex social processes. Rediscover this classic volume, which includes a new preface by Fred Magdoff.
