Grassroots Political Reform in Contemporary Chinaby Elizabeth J Perry
Observers often note the glaring contrast between China's economic progress and its stalled political reforms.

While the authors offer varying views on the larger significance of these developments, their case studies point to a more dynamic Chinese political system than is often acknowledged.
