ThisÂ book examines the explicit effects of global connectivity on local culture and society in post-reform mainland China. It focuses on individual level globalization in China and how global socialization impacts local residentsâ behaviors, lifestyle, value orientation and the consequence of local transformation. Asking questions such as:
- What types of individual global connections have emerged and developed in China over the last three decades?
- What aspects of local transformations are influenced by such global connections?
- How does the impact of global connections vary across different aspects of local communities and institutions?
Jiaming Sun uses an originalÂ micro-level relational approach toÂ analyse how different types of individual global connections may make a difference and constitute certain outcomes of local transformation, the outcome being thatÂ global connectionsÂ are capable of facilitating local transformation across different spatial, economic, and cultural settings.
