Chapter Summary

This book is a socio-political history of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). It is an analysis of the role of CASS in national policy-making from the start of the reforms in 1978 and of the ways in which the reforms have shaped CASS. Finally, this book makes a distinction between the way in which intellectuals view their own role in the process of political and administrative change and the changes that actually took place, as illustrated by the reforms at CASS. This study illustrates the intertwining of political, social and cultural factors that shape part of academic life. Structurally, this book is divided into five parts, which are built around the various themes that highlight the socio-political history of CASS from different angles.

Keywords: Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS); reforms; socio-political history
