China Left Review #4 (Summer 2011): Historical Legacies, Global Financial Crisis, and China’s Working Class Movement

Issue #4 of the web-journal China Left Review is now online. The latest issue is tightly focused on the issue of workers, including general overviews and in-depth original pieces on recent large-scale labor struggles involving SOE workers and migrant workers. This marks the second fully bilingual edition of CLR. Producing an issue in two languages takes a great deal of effort, and if you’d like to help out with translating, revising or writing for future issues, please contact [email protected]

China Left Review #3 (Summer 2010): Reevaluating Rural China in the Collective Period

Issue #3 of China Study Group’s bi-lingual web-journal China Left Review is focused on new essays, by Chinese and overseas writers, revisiting several English-language books about rural China during the collective/ “people’s commune” era (ca. 1957-1982). The issue also includes an article on China’s ongoing land-tenure debate, and one on Sino-Korean relations. With the exception of the latter article, every text is presented in both Chinese and English versions - a first for this journal which we hope to continue. (If you’d like to help out with translating, revising or writing for future issues, please contact [email protected]) Also note the new design of the CLR website, including the painting “Iron Bones Giving Birth to Spring” (铁骨生春).

Much of recent news coverage and debate over the protests of Tibetans and their supporters, both inside and outside China, has tended to provide a very incomplete view of the underlying historical, global and social dimensions of the relationships involved. In an effort to open up a more multifaceted discussion of this complex issue, I offer the following set of questions.
