The main ethnographic aim of this book is to examine the sociopolitical formation of a new bureaucracy within the People's Republic of China and its relationship to a specific category of alterity. It examines how bodies, locally and translocally understood, may be instrumental for the sociopolitical formation of biobureaucracy and alterity. Many of the analytical arguments developed in this text are built upon ideas about bodiliness or embodiment—the intersection of the sociopolitical, somatic, and personal.
