Crisis Of Chineseness: Value Changes In The Face Of Modernization In China, Jotaro Tateyama Apr 1997

Crisis Of Chineseness: Value Changes In The Face Of Modernization In China, Jotaro Tateyama

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

My association with China goes back more than a decade. I have been familiar with Chinese culture since my childhood.

That is when I learned of the Reform and Opening Up from a Japanese magazine specializing in international affairs. It has been eighteen years since China changed its course of development. The policy called Reform and Opening ...

The Middle Class: Increasingly Fond Memories Of A Grim Past, David S. Mason

Scholarship and Professional Work - LAS

Despite seemingly successful reforms in many post-communist countries, increasing numbers of people have been sliding from the middle class into poverty.

Justin Schwartz

THIS PAPER IS THE CO-WINNER OF THE FRED BERGER PRIZE IN PHILOSOPHY OF LAW FOR THE 1999 AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE BEST PUBLISHED PAPER IN THE PREVIOUS TWO YEARS.

The conflict between liberal legal theory and critical legal studies (CLS) is often framed as a matter of whether there is a theory of justice that the law should embody which all rational people could or must accept.
