Current working conditions of postsecondary faculty in the People's Republic of China are described, with a focus on what has changed since 1976 and the end of the Cultural Revolution. Based on field work in China and on personal correspondence with Chinese faculty members between 1984 and 1989, a broad overview is presented of college and university teaching staff. Specific topics such as workplace, workload, salary, benefits, and evaluation for promotion are discussed. Particular attention is paid to the changes occurring in Chinese society and its educational system that affect faculty members. Contains 39 footnotes. (KM)
