Most of the papers included in this collection were first presented at a symposium hosted in Oxford in March 2011 and organized by the editor. This was made possible by generous funding from the Contemporary China Studies Program (The Leverhulme Trust) and from the British Inter-University China Centre (Arts and Humanities Research Council, Economic and Social Research Council, and Higher Education Funding Council for England). In addition to those included in this collection, the author would like to thank the discussants and participants for their helpful comments.
