The rural area development is one of the most crucial problems in nowadays China. As we know, the inner structure of rural community and the rural policies of the nation are affecting the individual village from within and above, so the policies coming from outside world can hardly join the metabolism system of rural society. From the view of sociology, this report tries to study the discipline of social-cultural changes, setting on the case of Hua'xian Shadow Play. We propose the perspective endogenous of China's rural social and cultural. And try on the logic among the mode of production, lifestyle, demographic composition and cultural consumption patterns. Then we do some thinking on the structural changes of the rural culture of thinking.
