This study identifies how differences in youngsters' concepts and practices of lying about good deeds are rooted in variations in the way they react to authority figures, socio-cultural rules, peers, and personal feelings. This book presents research which explores a provocative face of lying in a particular cultural context, the Chinese practice of lying about good deeds. Probing youngsters' lived experiences, this inquiry examines not only whether and when children pick up on lying about good deeds but how they conceptualize what they are doing. In revealing the intricacy of ethical and social practices around lying about good deeds, this book helps readers appreciate the subtle character of moral thought, action, and development not only within Chinese culture but beyond.
