Overview


This monograph contributes to the field of institutional change and property rights reform in (former) socialist economies with particular reference to China. Studying institutional change regardless of whether it is focused on transitional or developing economies, may prove most fruitful when focused on its structuring of the means of production - land, labour and capital. This book singles out land as an object of study and places it in the context of one of the world's largest and most populous countries undergoing institutional reform, China. With its focus on land policy and administration, including all major natural resources such as agricultural land, forest, grassland and wasteland, the book is the first comprehensive review of China's land property rights reform.
