Abstract: The "Last-Mile" dilemma,focusing on the insufficient mobilization and participation of peasants,highlights the problem of grass-roots governance.Through research on the mutual interaction between grass-roots government and rural communities,this article attempts to analyze generative mechanism of the"Last-Mile"dilemma and reveal the underlying causes of the governance problem arising in rural grass roots.At present,the interaction between the local government and rural communities are reflected in two aspects,namely the distribution of resourcesto the countryside and the implementation of agricultural policies.The villages that undertake the task of distribution of countryside resources and the implementation of agricultural policies are mainly featured with non-subjectivity,which is mainly reflected in the"waiting for,depending on and asking for"peasants and personalized rural governance.The resources going to the countryside further strengthens villages’ non-subjectivity,resulting in the situation where they are responsible for the upper level and not to the peasants.It leads to the fact that the organization and mobilization of peasants’ collective action lose its social and political basis,hence the formation of the"Last-Mile"dilemma.We need to effectively guide and mobilize peasants because only the participation of peasants can a well-ordered and good-governed rural communities come true
