This fascinating study is one of the first to subject community development interventions in China, which espouse 'gender mainstreaming', 'empowerment' and 'participation,' to rigorous critique. Drawing on ethnographic research into one community development project conducted in three villages, the book provides a wonderfully rich and nuanced picture of the complicated relationship between external development interventions, local gender and other power relations, and social change. It will provide much food for thought for scholars, students and development activists interested in gender, community development and China.
