What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Peerenboom gives the rule of law in China a truly comprehensive, magisterial coverage in this will occupy a central place in the literature on legal development in China for years to come." American Journal of Sociology

"Randall Peerenboom's China's Long March towards Rule of Law is an exhaustive compendium on the legal and political system of the People's Republic of China. [It is] a great ride. It could serve as one of the texts in courses on PRC law in both law schools and other venues."
