Summary
  • "This book offers the best overview available of Chinese society, economy, and politics. It brings together many of the finest scholars on contemporary China, giving a rounded view of the PRC over the past thirty years and raising incisive questions about where China is going. The authors show that the country's rapid economic growth, adaptive authoritarian government, and developing institutions over the last three decades give hope for coping with difficult problems like pollution, climate change, corruption, and inequality."--Ezra F. Vogel, Harvard University
  • "This is a first-rate collection on some of the most important social, economic, and political issues facing China, written by some of the most influential scholars on these subjects. Simultaneously historically grounded and addressing current issues, this book deserves to be read by all those interested in how China has got to where it is and where it may be heading."--Bruce Dickson, George Washington University
  • In this timely book, a group of leading scholars provides a comprehensive assessment of China's polity, economy, and society. Taking the thirtieth anniversary of Beijing's adoption of reform and opening as an occasion to reflect on the course of development over the past three decades, the contributors consider where the country may be going in the future. Just as China has had enormous success in developing its economy, it continues to face equally enormous challenges across a wide variety of issues, including inequality, social protest, energy, the environment, and a resurgence of religion. Authoritative, accessible, and current, this book will be an invaluable resource for all readers interested in the fate of a rising global power. --Book Jacket
