Editorial Reviews


China Shifts Gears is an excellent roadmap for those seeking to analyze the complexities of China's economic performance. It critically explores new avenues for understanding the dynamics of technological innovation in emerging countries. An inspirational resource for policy makers, scholars, and international policy students.

(Calestous Juma, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)

This is an extremely important and timely book. Gallagher's account of the three major China-U.S. joint ventures will not only shed light on the current debate in China about foreign direct investment and indigenous technological capabilities; it will also contribute to effective public policies to address the monumental challenges of pollution and oil consumption presented by the tremendous growth of the Chinese auto market. I enjoyed it thoroughly!

(Xue Lan, Director, China Institute of Science and Technology Policy, Tsinghua University, Beijing)

I am very impressed with this book. Gallagher addresses the extremely important question of whether foreign direct investment can be an effective vehicle for transfer of clean energy, in particular in the automotive sector. The question has enormous implications not only for China (air pollution, cancer rates) but for the world (oil prices, climate change). The importance of this book is therefore very great.

(Judith Shapiro, School of International Service, American University, author of Mao's War Against Nature: Politics and the Environment in Revolutionary China)
