Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The author visited Kaixiangong in the summer of 1981 for an update of the renowned village/commune studies by Fei (1946) and Geddes (1963). The primary focus is on population, female infanticide, family and household structure, and the effects of family planning; some consideration is also given to land use, housing, and transportation. The previous researchers’ approaches to population statistics are critiqued.
