This volume and the conference that preceded it were made possible by support from many sources. Both are the culmination of a research collaboration between us, which in turn was part of a larger five-year project, funded by the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development (P01 HD 28076), to study work patterns, child nutrition, and reproductive behavior in the context of rapid social change in China. We came together initially because of our association with Barry Popkin, another collaborator in the larger research project. Graduate students Jill Bouma (now on the faculty at Berea College) and Susan Short (now on the faculty at Brown University) contributed importantly to the research effort. For us, the conference represents the social science research and commentary that we wish had been available at the beginning of our work.
Plans for the conference were first formulated in a planning meeting and workshop held in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in February 1995. Yanjie Bian, Mary Brinton, Elisabeth Croll, Denise Hare, Gail Hershatter, and Zhai Fengying attended, and we would like to acknowledge their helpful ideas and suggestions, many of which were incorporated into the subsequent design of the conference. The University Center for International Studies and the Carolina Population Center provided support for the planning meeting. Travel expenses for some of the attendees were covered through their participation in the Triangle East Asia Colloquium (TEAC).
The Joint Committee on Chinese Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies and the Social Research Council, the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation, and a grant from the Mellon Foundation to the Carolina Population Center provided support for the conference and the preparation of this volume. We want to acknowledge and express our gratitude for this support.
We would also like to acknowledge and thank the many individuals whose help was vital. Chief among them is Amanda Brickman Elam, graduate student in sociology, who expertly handled all of the details for the conference itself, including correspondence with authors, arrangements for the conference site, preparation of materials, scheduling, and many other management activities. Amanda Elam was also central to the conversion of the conference papers into a publishable volume, again handling correspondence with authors and tracking papers as they were reviewed, revised, edited, and checked. We would also like to thank Lynn Igoe and Leslie Cornell for verifying references in the unified bibliography and for other editorial assistance; and Debra A. Donahoe, Allison Greene, Brad Hammill, Marion Hughes, and Guobin Yang, who served as graduate student notetakers at the conference. Final manuscript preparation was ably handled by Shea Farrell.
