From Heaven to Earth: Images and Experiences of Development in China

By Elisabeth Croll | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

In undertaking this study I would like to acknowledge the help of the following institutions, organisations and persons. I would like to thank the Leverhulme Foundation and the School of Oriental and African Studies, whose financial support made the research and writing of this book possible.

Various international and non-governmental organisations enabled me to make the field visits to China. These included NOVIB, IFAD, the Ford Foundation, FAO and the World Bank. In China, I received much help from various host organisations, including the Ministry of Agriculture, the Institute of Sociology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the Poverty Alleviation Bureau and the All-China Women’s Federation. For aid with my work in China, I would like to thank Mary Ann Burris, Paul Cadario, Meng Fanxi, William Hinton, Howard Johnson, Nick Menges, Lee Travers, Alan Piazza and Zhang Ye, as well as many local cadres, who were unstinting in their assistance.

I would like to express my thanks to the Centre for Cross-Cultural Research on Women, Queen Elizabeth House, University of Oxford, under the directorship of Shirley Ardener for giving me the opportunity to give the Ward Lecture in October 1990, an occasion which stimulated some of the overarching ideas for this book. I would like to thank David Parkin for his reading of the manuscript and helpful suggestions.

To Nicolas and Katherine I offer my apologies for having less time with them than I would wish, and to Jim Croll I offer my thanks for his help during times when I was away in China.

This book has a very general dedication: to all those working for a better earth both within China and beyond. More specifically, its writing owes much to the ideas and stimulation of my colleagues in the Department of Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London: in particular Richard Fardon, Mark Hobart, Deniz Kandiyoti, David Parkin, John Peel, Stuart Thompson and Andrew Turton; its writing also owes much to the support of colleagues and friends in Anthropology and Asian Studies at SOAS and elsewhere: in particular to Helen
