Chapter Summary

This chapter gives a general introduction to the background and process of the growth of Chinese villagers' rights in public law in the past dozen or so years. By doing so, the author hopes to shed some light on one aspect of the evolution of the Chinese society in recent years and provide some clues for further study on the subject. Since 1978, the first event to make a direct impact on the growth of peasants' rights in public law was the economic reform in rural areas - also known as Songbang. The chapter addresses the following questions: (1) to what extent can Songbang and differentiation in today's rural China stimulate the growth of rights in public law; and (2) can the social transformations brought about by Songbang and differentiation accommodate and promote the growth of rights in public law.

Keywords: Chinese villagers' rights; public law; social differentiation; Songbang
