Abstract

The following is an abridged version of the introductory chapter of Divided Knowledge: Across Disciplines, Across Cultures, to be published in early 1991 by Sage Publications, Inc. The book is a product of the exchange agreement entered into in 1984 by the American Academy and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in the People's Republic of China. (Note: The recent political problems in China have necessitated the temporary suspension of activities related to this agreement.) In May 1988 David Easton, Vice-President of the Academy (Western Center) and Distinguished Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, led a delegation of ten US scholars to Beijing, where the group participated, with Chinese scholars, in a series of conferences on the latest developments in a number of humanistic and social science disciplines. These meetings were made possible by grants from the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Academy's Committee on Research and Planning. Divided Knowledge is a collection of the papers presented in Beijing by the US participants, coedited by Mr. Easton and Corinne Schelling, Associate Executive Officer of the Academy.
