Unlike the election models in other Asian countries, rural elections in China were created from the grassroots level by farmers before they were officially and legally recognized by the government.As China is going through rapid urbanization and an increasing number of the rural population is moving to cities, village elections and power structures in the villages are also experiencing changes. By drawing on over 2,000 rural elections cases in China, this book analyzes the latest developments and deciphers their implications - not only for village elections, but also for China's democratization process. It also examines the interplay between state power and village elections: whether one grows at the expense of the other. Readers interested in China's rural elections will find this book a useful read.
