Marketization, Democratization, and the "Reach of the State"——Investigation of the Shifts in China's Village Politics

Dali L. Yang Travis J. Warner  
In the field of China Study, The Reach of the State: Sketches of the Chinese Body Politic by Vivienne Shu has inspired legions of thoughts. Shue's hypothesis that post-Mao reforms would increase the vulnerability of villages to state penetration was especially controversial. Today, this hypothesis should be reevaluated. Two primary conclusions were made in this article: First, the particular path of marketization followed in rural China has increased the vulnerability of villagers to state-led land expropriation, specifically by distinguishing the interests of villagers and cadres with respect to land; Second, while village elections may theoretically align cadres' and villagers' interests, they have so far made little progress in this respect,largely due to the rural political and socioeconomic structure in which democratic reforms have had to be accommodated.
