Overview

As China becomes more powerful on the world stage, international policymakers insist that long-term legal reforms and the development of civil liberties are crucial for the nation's acceptance as a global partner.

In Modem Chinese Legal Reform, editors Xiaobing Li and Qiang Fang bring together scholars from multiple disciplines to provide a comprehensive look at China's rapid socioeconomic transformation and the dramatic changes in its judicial system and legal practices. Investigating subjects such as constitutional history, the intersection of politics and law, democratization, civil legal practices, and judicial mechanisms, this volume situates current constitutional debates in the context of both the country's ideology and traditions and the wider global community.

Based on newly available official sources and interviews with Chinese administrators, judges, law enforcement officers, and legal experts, this essential resource enables readers to view key events through the eyes of individuals who are intimately acquainted with the challenges and successes of the past twenty years.

The book will appeal particularly to those with less expertise and familiarity with technical jargon, as its presentation is very clear and user-friendly." — The China Journal
