This article is partly based on the author's doctoral dissertation, “Why Do They Not Obey the Law? A Case Study of a Rural-Urban Migrant Enclave in China” (He 2004b). This study has been supported by the Asia/Pacific Scholars Program at Stanford University, a summer research grant (1999) from the Yale China Law Center, and a Small Scale Grant from City University of Hong Kong. The author wishes to thank Mariano-Florentino Cuellar, Lawrence M. Friedman, Deborah Hensler, Carol Jones, Herbert Kritzer, Stanley Lubman, Mike McConville, Rogelio-Perez Perdomo, Joseph Sanders, and several anonymous reviewers for their critical but constructive comments on earlier versions of the article. The author also wants to acknowledge the fine research assistance from Chu Mingyan (Rachel), Ling Bing, Liu Zhong, Ge Lei, and Zhang Ming.
