About this book

Introduction

'This is one of the best surveys of the politics of economic reform in post-Mao China to appear to date.' - Dali L. Yang, The Journal of Asian Studies.  'Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.' - S.K. Ma, Choice. This book analyses the political origins and impact of the post-Mao programme of market-orientated reform in China focussing on key areas of policy, institutions and social dynamics. The author argues that the Deng reforms have radically changed the nature of Chinese society and created ineluctable pressures for political change in the direction of pluralism and, ultimately, democratisation.
