The Flow of Gifts: Reciprocity and Social Networks in a Chinese Village by Yunxiang Yan

SYNOPSIS: Gift-giving is a classic topic in anthropology, where on-going debates involve the principle of reciprocity, the spirit of the gift, and the relationship between gifts and commodities. But the topic has been surprisingly little studied in the Chinese context except for the form of instrumental exchange known as networking or guanxi. 278 pages
