Chapter Summary

This is the introduction chapter of the book, which offers an account of rights philosophy in a Chinese cultural and social context; to use the discourse of rights to understand and analyse the things that have happened in China. It evaluates currently prevailing Western rights theories from a Chinese cultural standpoint and through the lens of the Chinese experience. Where necessary author has re-stated, revised or challenged those theories. His intention was to write for Chinese readers, to endeavour to provide the required theoretical support and knowledge resources for a proper resolution of civil rights - something capable of preventing social ills, consolidating the nation and allowing it to flourish - questions. The book deals mainly with civil rights, or rights in the sense used in public law. It turns the question into one of what value those rights have for Chinese culture.

Keywords: Chinese culture; civil rights; preventing social ills; public law; theoretical support; Western rights theories
