LRCCS Noon Lecture Series | Redemption, Raids, and Restitution: The “Tail” of Private Ownership in the Early People’s Republic of China
Puck Engman is Assistant Professor at the Department of History at the University of California, Berkeley. In the academic year 2022-2023, he is a faculty fellow with the UC Berkeley Social Sciences Matrix. He is currently working on a book that examines how the Chinese state defined and attempted to solve the problem of capitalists following the takeover of private enterprises and the integration of the management in a socialist system. He is the co-editor of "Victims, Perpetrators and the Role of Law in Maoist China: A Case-Study Approach" (De Gruyter 2018, with Daniel Leese) and author of “What Right to Property when Rebellion is Justified? Revolution and Restitution in Shanghai” (in "Justice after Mao: The Politics of Historical Truth in the People’s Republic of China," edited by Daniel Leese and Amanda Shuman, forthcoming with Cambridge University Press).
