This book is a detailed study of the modern silk industry in a county in the Yangzi delta. It reopens and restructures the grand debate on Chinese economic development, combining quantitative analysis of both industry and agriculture with study of how local politics, class, culture, and gender also shaped the modern Chinese economy.
