Editorial Reviews


..."this is an excellent book illustrating effectively the realities and heterogeneity of socialist transition. Not only is it an invaluable resource for readers interested in specific provinces within China, but taken as a whole this volume is a welcome and refreshing example of regional studies well informed by political-economic perspectives."
-"Economic Geographies
"This is an excellent book that ... dispels any tendency to doubt the reality of vigorous growth and development occurring in provinces all over China ... "China's Provinces in Reformhas a place in any situation in which it is important to engage seriously with current developments in China."
-"Journal of Asian Business

Format: Paperback
Much of the contemporary research into China's economy is focused broadly on the features, prospects, benefits, or failures of Chinese economic reform since 1978. Subcategories of research touch upon the transition of China's economy from the failed Maoist experiments to its present `Socialist Market Economy' hybrid state, the dynamism of China's `Special Economic Zones,' or the prospects for the collapse of China's financial and industrial sectors. While the bulk of this research represents high scholarly standards, there is a lack of research that looks beneath the systemic features of Chinese economic reforms. China's Provinces in Reform addresses this concern. China's Provinces in Reform analyzes the past, present, and future economic features of selected individual Chinese provinces, with a specific focus on much-ignored provinces, including Guangxi and Zhejiang. The results are impressive, with the assembled researchers doing much to fill in the gaps in recent Chinese economic research. After assessing the future economic prospects of the provinces covered in this book, it becomes quite clear that China's drive toward economic modernization will only become more difficult in the future. The general reader should find this book accessible. Although China's Provinces in Reform was written by specialists for specialists, this volume avoids the temptation of becoming bogged down in overly technical analysis. Editor David Goodman has managed to maintain an even quality standard throughout this volume, avoiding the fate of many volumes containing contributions from multiple scholars. China's Provinces in Reform is recommended for any reader wishing to deepen their understanding of the issues facing China's economic reform drive.
