China and the Global Political Economy

Overview

In a relatively short period, the growth of investment to China and the resulting increase in Chinese trade has resulted in a reconfiguration of the East Asian regional economy, and is now altering financial and resource flows across the globe.

Overview

In a relatively short period, the growth of investment to China and the resulting increase in Chinese trade has resulted in a reconfiguration of the East Asian regional economy, and is now altering financial and resource flows across the globe. This book explains how this transformation has come about, focusing on the interplay between domestic politics in China and the transition from socialism on one hand, and the ongoing evolution of global or transnational production networks on the other. It shows that while events in China have considerable global significance, this importance does not necessarily equate with the "power" that some already ascribe to China. Whilst recognizing that global economic integration has contributed to the reduction of poverty, it also shows how it has contributed to the emergence of new social cleavages and the changing basis of communist party rule.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A welcome addition to the study of contemporary China. The author escorts the readers, like an experienced tour guide, to the wild and uncharted terrain of China studies. China is huge and is full of rough tracks. To travel such a place, you need an experienced navigator or a good guide map, hopefully both. This book provides both and shows us more. The author describes not only the political landscape of today's China but also the locations of hidden pitfalls and landmines." - Yoshifumi Nakai, Gakushuin University, Tokyo
