(p.328) Afterword Observations on State-Family Relations in the Reform Period
Revolutionizing the Family
University of California Press

This chapter offers some observations on the question of change and continuity in the state-family relations in the post-Mao period in China. It explains that during the Cultural Revolution, very few urbanites were successful in taking advantage of the Marriage Law to change their family status and intellectuals were among those least willing to do so. It suggests that the there might be more continuity than transition in state-family relations between the Maoist and post-Maoist periods and that the notion of transition may apply only to a particular segment of the population during the Cultural Revolution years.
