"Authored by a leading specialist on the Chinese economy, Barry Naughton's book provides a lucid, systematic, and insightful view of China's road to becoming a 'powerhouse of the global economy' as well as of the challenges ahead in sustaining past accomplishments. Designed primarily as a textbook, its comprehensive coverage and sophisticated analysis assure that it will become a valuable and much-used resource for anyone seeking an understanding of China's economy."--Steven M. Goldstein, Sophia Smith Professor of Government, Smith College
