Editorial Reviews

Rawi Abdelal

“In this impressive, insightful, and now essential book, Breznitz and Murphree uncover and explain how China's system of innovation fits into a world of fragmented production and a rapidly expanding technological frontier. Our overly simplistic debates about which nations are catching up or falling behind will have to change. No one in the West will have a comprehensive understanding of the rise of China and its place in the current era of globalization until reading Run of the Red Queen.”—Rawi Abdelal, Harvard Business School
Xielin Liu

“…Highlights the hot issues from a global as well as regional dimension with very deep knowledge of China.”—Xielin Liu, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences
Gordon Chang

“Run of the Red Queen gives us the smartest view of the most important question facing Beijing's economic planners: the sustainability of Chinese growth. The answers in Breznitz's and Murphree's important work are as intriguing as they are fresh.”—Gordon Chang, Author of The Coming Collapse of China
Arthur Kroeber

“…Gives us an entirely new way of thinking about innovation and economic development. By focusing on the specific kinds of innovation that flourish in China, and the institutional and geographical factors at play, Breznitz and Murphree offer a fascinating and nuanced view of how technology is developing in the world's fastest growing economy.”—Arthur Kroeber, Editor, China Economic Quarterly
Song Lei
“…A very valuable contribution to our understanding of the coevolution of public policy and industrial strategy in China. This penetrating study … is on my short list of must-reads of the best recent writing about innovation with Chinese characteristics.”—Song Lei, Peking University
John Zysman

“Run of the Red Queen provocatively forces us to reconsider the character of the challenge China represents.”—John Zysman, University of California Berkeley
