Summary The socioeconomic integration among Taiwan, Hong Kong and South China (Guangdong and Fujian) has transformed their respective civil societies in the 1980's and the 1990s. The state-civil society relationship for each territory is studied before the integration process. The dynamics of the integative process is highlighted. Then, the authors discuss how the integrative process has evoked new ethnic identity, given rise to new social forces, and transformed the state-society relationship in Taiwan, Hong Kong and South China.
