In this lecture, Professor Yu Xie proposes that future research on China will benefit from integration with social science. Not only should China research adopt social science methods for utilizing empirical data, but it should also consider contemporary China as an internally heterogeneous subject. Using his own work on inequality in China as examples, Professor Xie demonstrates the social causes and consequences of the rise of inequality in the country.
