China's transient population is "floating," unlinked from its legal domicile and set out on the loose. Pouring in waves and swelling in surges or spewed out as flotsam, its very name conjures up variegated images of anomic, atomized particles drifting and wandering without direction, also of aggregations billowing in huge masses and pounding at city walls. This paper studies this phenomenon and discusses the questions on: can we call this new formation an instance of civil society; where shall we position it in reference to the state?
