From Library Journal
The pace and scope of reform in China over the past nine years have made standard interpretations date quickly. Harding (Brookings Institution) brings us up to the minute with an excellent assessment of Deng Xiaoping's reforms. He describes the origin, content, and future of the reforms and argues that proponents must continue to produce positive results or they will be replaced. He also notes how comparisons will be made with similar efforts to reform Leninist socialism in the Soviet Union and Western Europe. A highly readable and useful account, recommended for public, school, and university libraries. David D. Buck, Univ. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

From the Back Cover
China has, since 1976, been enmeshed in an extraordinary program of renewal and reform. The obvious changes-- the T-shirts, blue jeans, makeup, and jewelry worn by Chinese youth; the disco music blaring form radios and loudspeakers on Chinese Streets; the televisor antennas mushrooming form the urban apartment complexes and suburban peasant housing; the bustling free markets selling meat, vegatabels, and clothing in Chin's major cities-- reflect a fundamental shift in the government's policy toward the economy and political life.
