9780742539310: China's Deep Reform: Domestic Politics in Transition

China's rapid and complex political and socioeconomic changes provide fertile ground for pioneering analysis, but they also present daunting theoretical and practical challenges. This reader takes up the challenge, offering the most comprehensive assessment of Chinese domestic politics available by bringing together the best recent scholarship in the field. The anthology focuses on the origin, content, and significance of the post-1989 phase of China's reform and opening to the world, commonly known in the PRC as "deep reform." This period has been unfolding in interaction with globalization, marketization, privatization, political institutionalization, as well as with financial and legal changes. Deep reform includes new policy initiatives that have penetrated political, legal, economic, and social sectors untouched by previous initiatives as reformers have been forced to deal with the consequences—intended and unintended—of earlier reforms.

These carefully selected essays by leading scholars have been revised and updated for this text. In addition, a substantive introduction and conclusion place the articles in their broader context for readers new to the subject. With the successful transition of the leadership of the party, state, and military since 2002, the time is ripe for a comprehensive evaluation of China's deep reform as it enters a new stage. This timely reader will offer students, scholars, and policymakers invaluable insights into the dynamics of change in one of the world's emerging political and economic dynamos.

Review:

This impressive anthology presents a selection of articles on China's post-Mao reform, which together offer a detailed analysis of their political and economic effects both in China and abroad. (Foreign Affairs)

This comprehensive anthology of China's domestic politics presents revised and updated book chapters and journal articles by leading China scholars. . . . Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

A comprehensive collection of high-quality papers on contemporary Chinese politics. (The China Journal)

Lowell Dittmer and Guoli Liu have created a remarkably comprehensive anthology of some of the most incisive analyses of the fundamental trends and challenges of contemporary Chinese political, economic, and societal reality. Moreover, their introduction and conclusion provide an elegant overview of the evolution of reform-era China, from Deng Xiaoping to Jiang Zemin and now Hu Jintao, and of the challenges that remain. (Brantly Womack, University of Virginia)

This collection of essays by some of the leading China scholars in the United States is both an invaluable reference for students and scholars of contemporary China and an excellent reader for graduate and undergraduate Chinese politics courses. (Weixing Chen, East Tennessee State University)

This is a fine collection of some of the best journal articles and book chapters in the contemporary Chinese politics field. Its comprehensive coverage makes it eminently suitable for classroom use and for those wishing to gain an informed and insightful overview of the state of the field. (Thomas P. Bernstein, Columbia University)
