Overview

As China moves from a society controlling all aspects of life, including population movement, to something nearer a market economy, migration has become an urgent issue. Tens of millions of rural migrants have entered China's cities, meeting discrimination similar to that experienced by economic migrants to the West. This book looks at the reasons why people migrate, the lives of migrants and government policy towards them. It distinguishes different types of migration and looks particularly at marriage migration and the effects of migration on the lives of women.

Looks at the rejection and discrimination of migrants in China and examines why people migrate and what they have to gain or lose by it. As part of this examination, Davin (Chinese social studies, U. of Leeds) studies migration after 1949 and since 1978, and discusses such topics as sex and age discrimination, small town policies, identity cards, educational levels, lifestyle and attitudinal change, construction workers, women and migration, mate selection, and images in the media.
