This chapter examines the personal and family relationships in rural China during the period from 1954 to 1966. It evaluates the impacts on these relationships of two key political events during this period: the political decentralization between 1954 and 1958 and the political and economic liberalization of 1961–1963. It investigates the role of peasants' materials and other resources on divorces and the impact of changing land tenure relations on the power relations in the family.

Keywords:   personal relationships, family relationships, rural China, political decentralization, political liberalization, economic liberalization, divorce, land tenure, power relations
