About the Authors
  • Despite repeated predictions of collapse and disintegration, China has managed to sustain national unity and gain international stature since the 1989 Tiananmen crisis. Examining the sources and dynamics of the resilience, this volume's contributors reveal how China's leaders have adapted and reinforced key economic and political institutions. They also disclose that implementation of complex policies to regulate economic and social life (employment and migration, population planning, industrial adjustment, and regional disparities) has become more effective over time within a context of growing social and economic diversity.

    • Addresses the 'China Collapse' thesis and makes a strong argument explaining the sources of China's resilience
    • Multi-disciplinary project by specialists from political sciences and economics
    • Offers fresh perspectives on some of the most salient policy issues in contemporary Chinese political economy, including unemployment, population planning, industrial adjustment and regional development
