Assistant Professor of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University. Professor Andreas studies changes in class relations in China since 1949. He recently finished a book manuscript that analyzes the contentious merger of old and new elites in China during the communist era. The book, based on a case study of Tsinghua University (China's premier school of science and technology and the alma mater of many of its top leaders), focuses on conflict over the political and cultural foundations of class power. Profeesor Andreas is currently investigating changing labor relations in Chinese factories between 1949 and the present. Among his publications are "Institutionalized Rebellion: Governing Tsinghua University during the Late Years of the Chinese Cultural Revolution," China Journal 55 (2006); "Leveling the 'Little Pagoda': The Impact of College Entrance Examinations--and Their Elimination--on Rural Education in China," Comparative Education Review 48 (2004); and "Battling over Political and Cultural Power during the Chinese Cultural Revolution," Theory and Society 31 (2002).
