Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'In this volume, Gregory Chow and Dwight Perkins assemble a global array of authors to provide a comprehensive account of China’s economic development both before and after the reform initiatives of the late 1970s. While many of the contributors focus on institutions, policies and outcomes at the national level, detailed accounts by reform participants Wu Jinglian and Yi Gang along with an iconoclastic essay by Lynn White provide readers with unusual insight into the operational mechanisms of China’s political economy.'Thomas G. Rawski, Professor of Economics and History, University of Pittsburgh, USA

'The Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Economy excels in the breadth of its contributors and topics. Professors Chow and Perkins have assembled an all-star group of authors ranging from international academic leaders to those with relevant experience within the Chinese government. Topics range from historical perspectives to current economic issues on the road to reform. Anyone interested in the Chinese economy will find this handbook a must read.'Burton G. Malkiel, Professor of Economics, Princeton University, USA

'Gregory Chow and Dwight Perkins, two giants in economic science, were major figures in helping to start the process of training Chinese students in modern economics in 1986 through their chairmen-ship of the US-China Committee on Economics Education and Research at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. We must thank them again now for sharing with us some of the significant fruits of that transformational training program. The many excellent articles in this Handbook on a broad range of topics make it indispensable to the library of a China scholar.'Wing Thye Woo, Professor of Economics, University of California, Davis, USA
