The Roads of Chinese Childhood (Cambridge Studies in Social & Cultural Anthropology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Children in the Taiwanese fishing community of Angang have their attention drawn, consciously and unconsciously, to various forms of identification through their participation in schooling, family life and popular religion. In particular they learn about the family-based cycle of reciprocity, and the tension between this and the commitment to the nation. Charles Stafford's study explores absorbing issues related to nurturance, education, family, kinship and society in its analysis of how children learn to be, or not to be, both familial and Chinese.
