Public Security Informants in the Early People’s Republic of China
The talk describes and analyses in its historical context how the recruitment and running of informants was managed by China’s state security organs prior to the beginning of the so-called reform era. The presentation is largely based on original grassroots operational records and, using the city of Harbin as a case, seeks to illustrate dimensions of urban social control previously neglected by political scientists and historians.
