Whether civil publicity exists in China where there is a “strong nation - vulnerable society”, or not? This issue has been explored by tens of thousands of researchers since the beginning of the 20th century. The mainstream of researches in 1990s period was pursuit of the ideal whether a Western style democracy would be realized in China. Since 2000s, the mainstream has shifted toward grassroots NGOs as well as public space and communication there in the age from the end of Qing Dynasty to the Republic of China Era. In the recent “Civil Society Studies” of China, the perspective of researches has been changed to political publicity to what extent the society influences the nation.
