Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Culture and Social Transformations: Theoretical Framework and Chinese Context presents the table of contents, acknowledgments, and a list of contributors. The book offers a conceptual discussion on the social and cultural roots of the reforms, viewed against the backdrop of changes in social life and production near the start of the reforms. It identifies central links between culture and social transformations and provides a better understanding of the nature of the reforms. The book focuses on the Cultural Revolution, which is an example of the most radical form of massive political campaigning, causing severe damage to the social order and injuring all social classes to varying extents.
