This chapter examines aspects of the characteristics of households and kin groups in rural areas of the Pearl River delta in Guangdong province in China during the mid-1980s. The Pearl River delta is a distinctive and well-described cultural setting for Chinese households and kin groups. The transformations in economy as a consequence of policy initiatives since 1979 have been substantial in all the coastal provinces of China, and have been especially marked in Guangdong and the Pearl River delta. The Pearl River delta, more than any other region of China, has become firmly incorporated into the global economy and has assumed a particular role in the new international division of labor. Major rural economic change has occurred as a consequence of incorporation into the world system.
