9781847202321: China's New Industrialization Strategy: Was Chairman Mao Really Necessary?

Deng Xiaoping's economic strategy is widely regarded as a complete anathema to Mao's, but this study strongly argues that without the material foundations laid by Mao, it would have been very difficult for Deng to launch his reform and open-door policy. Deng basically shared Mao's aspirations and approach in pursuit of China's industrialization, and this had in fact helped to condition him to the successful gradualist methodology. Deng lost patience at times and resorted to the `big bang' strategy, only to fail miserably. Taken together, the book tells a new story about the economics of China's transition. This is a highly thought-provoking study, blending institutional and convincing statistical analysis. It will appeal to scholars and academics interested in the background and process of China emerging as an economic giant and especially to students of economics, politics, international business and globalization studies who aspire to an alternative, `non-Left' re-interpretation of Mao's legacy.

About the Author:

Y.Y. Kueh, Chair Professor of Economics and Business Administration, Chu Hai College of Higher Education, Hong Kong

Review:

`The book is a scholarly attempt to place the post-Mao reforms in China in the context of developments in the Soviet Union and the Eastern European countries. The essays, written in different periods, have mostly been thoroughly rewritten, extended, updated and refocused in the light of recent developments, and demonstrate conclusively that Dengist reforms were not a clean break from the past, as many ideologically blinkered Western Sinologists readily assume; the reforms succeeded mainly because the post-Mao regime had inherited a solid economic and political edifice created during the Mao era.' -- Radha Sinha, Glasgow University, UK `Professor Kueh is one of the most original and prolific scholars in the field of communist Chinese studies. In this collection we can read fully updated versions of many of his most important contributions to our understanding of the Chinese economy in both its domestic and foreign dimensions. Most of these articles are now hard to get hold of and this new volume is therefore a most welcome addition to the literature.' -- Christopher Howe, University of Sheffield, UK `Y.Y. Kueh, in this stimulating collection of essays written over a career studying China's economy spanning more than three decades, argues the proposition that there were important elements of continuity in the transition of economic thinking from Mao Zedong to Deng Xiaoping. The argument is controversial, but scholars and students alike will gain insight into the economic development strategies of China from reading these carefully reasoned studies. They will challenge many of the common assumptions about the nature of China's transition from central planning to the market.' -- Dwight H. Perkins, Harvard University, US
