Editorial Reviews

Review

Ding's work is an unusual contribution to the literature about contemporary China. Using private education policies in Shanghai as a microcosm, and with a wealth of field data, she delineates a typical policy processes in China. The book explains some of the major puzzles about China held by those who are outside the system. In particular, she has uncovered the paradox between the apparent distortions during policy implementation on the one hand, and the general progress achieved by such policies on the other. Ding's work starts a new perspective of understanding China. (Kai-ming Cheng, University of Hong Kong)

This closely researched study of private schooling should interest those interested not only in Chinese education but also in Chinese policy implementation. (Daniel Levy, SUNY Distinguished Professor, University at Albany)

The book is based on a well-designed qualitative study with 65 in-depth interviews in 2001 and 2004. Ding tries to figure out the logic of policy implementation in Shanghai as an “insider” while having a clear awareness of the dilemma of studying a policy issue in her own culture. She makes the best use of her identity as an insider, not only as a Chinese but as someone who knows some “inside” stories concerning the issue interviewed. (Frontiers of Education in China)
