Governing China From Revolution to Reform by Kenneth (University of Michigan) Lieberthal


Governing China From Revolution to Reform by Kenneth (University of Michigan) Lieberthal

The new Second Edition includes discussions of: The consumer revolution that has brought China's major urban areas to the forefront of the developed world and created a new middle class An expanding private sector that has become the major generator of new employment in the overall economy as the state sector has shed jobs The increase in foreign direct investment which has set China on track to becoming the manufacturing center of the world. An enormous population migration from rural to urban areas and from the interior to the coast that is becoming one of the most massive movements of people in human history, and its significant impact on the environment The unprecedented integration into the international economic system as China has joined virtually every major multilateral regime The reactions of the top and the bottom of the political system to these recent developments and the continuing struggles between the government's large bureaucratic structures and sporadic popular political movements.
