Example text

Continuity and Innovation in Urban Life It is important to stress both continuities and innovations in Chinese cities because many changes in family life linked to collectivization in the countryside had already been anticipated among workers in the modern urban areas prior to the Communist victory. As indicated above, workers in the modern occupational groups, like those in the rural collectives, were not members of families having farms or other enterprises; thus their families similarly were characterized by weaker parental authority and greater freedom of marriage (some city workers in fact were members of rural families with land or other commercial holdings; for them, traditional family organization Page 15 might still have retained much of its strength).

Later, with growing industrialization, especially in the port cities, and with the emergence of a wage-earning working class and Western-oriented or radical elites, new family patterns also began to appear, so that there was the beginning of true contrasts, as between rural and urban or modern and traditional. Political Factors Affecting Social Change in the Family. Discussions of the family and social change rarely take into account political influences, and here again the Chinese case is useful for introducing the political dimension.
