State, Society and Governance in Republican China
Mechthild Leutner, Izabella Goikhman – 2013
The volume presents research on state and society in Republican China exploring various aspects of Republican history from the governance perspective. Governance is understood in a broader sense as interactions between state and society, including both the discursive process of social decision-making and the provision of (non-)material public goods. Topics highlighted are: the internationalization of disaster relief, the philanthropic governance of overseas Chinese in Xiamen, the transformation of the cultural group "World Society", historical writing and intellectual autonomy as well as the construction of warlord identity.
