The Spiral Road Change in a Chinese Village Through the Eyes of a Communist Party Leader Conflict and Social Change Series Free read ✓ 108 Al arena Significantly while these dynamic changes have been taking place the observance of cultural tradition has persisted Attempts made by the government to change “feudalistic” beliefs and practices have yet to make any lasting impression on village lifeThe second edition includes two new chapters based on the author’s continuing visits to China One chapter details changes in Lin Village such as Taiwanese investment of capital large scale production international marketing and new lifestyles Physically Lin Village has become a small market town with large department stores and daily vegetable markets; and living in European style villas driving imported automobiles and walking with a cellular phone. I ve just finished reading about twenty books on the aftermath of the Great Leap Forward In many ways this one was the best That s odd because scholars have largely ignored the book Spiral Road is exactly what its subtitle states It is largely a series of personal reminiscences by PS Ye a provincial Communist Party cadre about his life as a commune leader in Fujian Province It is hard to tell how much we re seeing Ye and how much Huang but the book manages to be in parts funny profound tragic and inspiring Above all it is perceptive No other book explains the actual long term effect of the numerous political campaigns of the era they built lasting political networks among the young cadres or explains the role of traditional religion or shows how the Maoist economic caste system worked in practice or details the devastating effect of the Great Leap on Mao s credibilityHistory ought to be about empathy about putting ourselves in a place and time so that we have a feeling for why people acted as they did and the objective constraints they faced This book does that Of course PS Ye is not Everyman Yet we get to know him fairly well and with that Rosetta Stone we can decode far easily the actions and motivations of a much larger group of historical actors
