“Judicial Politics” as State-Building

  • Zhu Suli
Part of the The Sciences Po Series in International Relations and Political Economy book series (SPIRP)


My book, Sending Law to the Countryside (Song Fa Xia Xiang) (Zhu 2000), was originally directed to a Chinese audience who I believed was too inclined to superficially import Western legal concepts or theories. But it has also captured the attention of the West as well, because it raises some hot issues regarding China’s basic-level judicial system. It thereby has nourished a constructive cross-cultural dialogue.
