The Identity of Zhiqing synopsis
Outside of China, little is known about the process and implications of the "up to the mountains" movement and the "rural" movement (UMDC), the Chinese state policy from 1967 to 1979, where more than 16 million high school graduates were relocated in different cities. To rural areas.
The movement formed the lives of these young people and their cost with a common collective identity:Zhiqing or educated young people. This book presents a new research on Qicheng, born and raised after the founding of the People's Republic of China as a lost generation during the Cultural Revolution.
The book presents memories of the twisted paths of his life, his unique identity and identification. Unlike previous historical approaches, it does so from a psychosocial perspective.
It is also unique in its use of direct materials, where individual memories and reflections gathered by in-depth interviews are collected and displayed as self-portraits of Zhiqing. This innovative research provides an informative and profound stimulus to the subject and also contributes to the development of contemporary Chinese studies by laying the foundation for a specialized study of Zhiqing. Combining rich experimental research with a strong theoretical perspective, this book is invaluable to students and scholars in Chinese history, sociology, anthropology and politics.
