Bourdieu theory of class structure states that the people in general make these decisions on where they belong in the socio economic classes in the society. Each of these preference by the people can be attributed to the functional elements that has been mentioned in the analysis. There is a lot of importance that has been given in this theory to how the people develop their habits based on their economic status. The preference of the people towards books in China can explain these nuances in detail. However, the central gap in this theory is assuming that the people in the society act only based on their social and economic status. The modern development of affordable technology and the newer dynamics of thought seem to focus on the development of individuality. This factor is not given due importance by the class fracture theory. The reason could be the relevance of the theory in the modern changing times. Rational choice theory explains about the importance of individuality in the modern dynamics.
The variable that has been considered in this analysis is the book preferences of the people. The reasons for the choice of books and the root causes of these preferences has been elucidated in detail in this analysis. China has made impressive economic growth in the past few decades. Between the years of 2010 to 2015 there has been general slowing down of the economy. There is more economic stability in the nation and a rise of the upper middle class has been observed. The number of publishing done in the country and the sheer volume of people reading has improved in the past few years. There has also been a rising middle class in the society. The genre that the people tend to read are found to be youth literature, self-help books or inspirational books, business development books, technical books, science fiction and office romance books. The youth literature has been preferred by the adolescent people. It discusses about the issues of the modern teenagers in the Chinese communities. There is discussion of independence of thought in these books. The business development, technical books has been found to be on the increase. This is because the people want to have a stronger economic growth in their personal life and they want to reach the next socio economic status. Self-help books and the inspirational books of the people are to increase the work life balance of the people. This has been found to be missing in the modern aggressive society that is garnered towards growth and productivity. In the future it has been expected that the economy of the country would remain stagnant and face new hurdles. This would mean that the people would focus on developing technical abilities and business development. This is the future trends of books that has been predicted based on the supposition that the economy would face hurdles in the future.
To conclude, the theories of Bourdieu has a major impact in understanding about the habits of the people in the society. But it cannot explain about all the modern variables such as the development of more individuality in the nations. Future research should focus on individuality and the role of personal growth towards development of reading habits of the people in the society. All efforts have been taken to reduce the impact of personal bias in the research. There has been critical examination of all the theories that has been used.
