Description & Features+
Native Place, City, and Nation, Bryna Goodman Hardcover. Goodman (modern Chinese history, U. of Oregon) describes the social organization by birthplace of Chinese immigrants to Shanghai, a traditional institution that persisted until the middle of the 20th century. She explains that because immigrants from other parts of China dominated the population of Shanghai, as of most Chinese commercial cities during the period of the study, and the urban government was weak, native-place associations played a critical role in the social, economic, and cultural organization of the city. She also traces the transformation of the associations with increasing industrialization, and their impact on modern forms of nationalism and relations between the state and society.
