One Industry, Two Chinas free pdf This book reopens and restructures the grand debate on the nature of economic development in China prior to the Communist revolution. It rejects the debate s old contours in which quantitative data were used to argue that the trajectory of Chinese development was either positive or negative. Instead, the author combines quantitative analysis with a detailed study of local politics, culture, and gender to explain the shaping of the modern Chinese economy. Focusing on silk production in Wuxi county in the Yangzi Delta, the author argues that local elites used social dominance to build a silk industry continuum one industry fusing modern factory production with older patterns of peasant-family farming. The resulting social configuration was two Chinas one populated by wealthy urban elites transformed into a new, silk-industry bourgeoisie, and the other by peasant families whose women became the workforce for cocoon production.
