2010/5/6 8:20:58

Like most research, the conclusions reached in this book are based on first-hand field studies, focusing on indigenous societal experience and facts. This book speaks about the Chinese Experience; most information comes from field studies, primarily from two State Key Research Projects: “A Database of Anthropology Resources in the Northwest Region” and “Preservation, Development, and Utilization of Western China’s Anthropology Resource”. These projects provide an understanding of how culture heritage is viewed differently by the Chinese Government, by the local people, and by scholars from various disciplines in front of the backdrop of globalization and also how “authority” and “Power” are being reconsidered. The interplay among these factors facilitates a reconstruction of Chinese culture and society by non-traditional, grass-roots means. This book presents and analyzes changes in society under such changing circumstances.
