(p.143) 4 A Final Resting Place: From Burial Grounds to Modern Cemeteries
Scythe and the City

Christian Henriot

Stanford University Press

Due to the particular political and spatial configuration of the city, the space devoted to the final resting place was sharply divided and fragmented. This chapter focuses on the process of transformation of Chinese burial grounds and the rise of modern cemeteries in the twentieth century. It examines the role of private companies in the light of the official prescriptions from the state and the inability of local municipal authorities to respond adequately to social demand.
