Social movements in China and Hong Kong: the expansion of protest space

Guiheux, Gilles, editor; Kuah-Pearce, Khun Eng, 1958- editor

The starting point of this book is the acknowledgement that on one side Chinese individuals, freer from the constraints of the State, have to rely on their own efforts for their well-being and, on the other side, in some circumstances, they gather together to defend their interests. The individualisation of society goes hand in hand with the collective movements that emerged as a result of individual wants
