Villages Disappearing In China
“Chi­nese cul­ture has tra­di­tion­al­ly been rur­al-based,” says Feng Ji­cai, a well-known au­thor and scholar. “Once the vil­lages are gone, the cul­ture is gone.” That is hap­pen­ing at a high rate. In 2000, Chi­na had 3.7 mil­lion vil­lages, ac­cord­ing to re­search by Tian­jin Uni­ver­si­ty. By 2010, that fig­ure had dropped to 2.6 mil­lion, a loss of about 300 vil­lages a day.
