From the PublisherProfessor Guo Rongxing delivers exactly what he promises: an introduction to the Chinese economy. But he touches all the right bases, and his explanations are always clear. The treatment is balanced, with appropriate historical perspective. The final chapter on fundamental issues in China's economic development is particularly thoughtful.

Teachers of introductory courses on the People's Republic of China will find this book very useful.
