This book (on CD) traces the evolution of county-level administration for one Chinese province through the entire pre-reform era (1949–78) and beyond (to 1999). The CD provides digital maps showing county boundaries and locations of county governments for every year, 1949–99. The CD also includes a collection of county-level population data for 1950–1985. The book itself explains how the digital maps were produced, provides documentation as to sources of maps and data, assesses the quality of the maps and data, and explains how to attach data to maps, in order to examine spatial patterns and how they change over time. The book includes color sample maps.
