Zouping offers important general lessons for the study of China's rural transformation. The authors in this volume, all participants in a field research project undertaken from 1988 to 1992, address questions that are far from simple and about which there is some controversy.

Scholarly writings about the "transitional economies" have often been ignored or distorted this aspect of China's reform experience. On the second issue, changes in inequality owing to market reform, the authors present mixed findings but contribute new data to the research on this issue.
