The Exemplary Society: Human Improvement, Social Control, and the Dangers of Modernity in China

כריכה קדמית
Oxford University Press, 2000 - 516 עמודים
In modern China, technocratic utopias go side-by-side with moral panics. The modernization process is seen as creating the "disorders" of criminality, sex, and modern youth culture. The official answer to disorder is an exemplary society, an educative and disciplinary society where "human quality" and model behaviour is advocated. Modern Chinese society, however, resists being reduced to the exemplary discipline of its social engineers, and strategies of "lying" and resisting control are routine.
