"This book offers the best overview available of Chinese society, economy, and politics. It brings together many of the finest scholars on contemporary China, giving a rounded view of the PRC over the past thirty years and raising incisive questions about where China is going. The authors show that the country's rapid economic growth, adaptive authoritarian government, and developing institutions over the last three decades give hope for coping with difficult problems like pollution, climate change, corruption, and inequality.-Ezra F. Vogel, Harvard University "This is a first-rate collection on some of the most important social, economic, and political issues facing China, written by some of the most influential scholars on these subjects. Simultaneously historically grounded and addressing current issues, this book deserves to be read by all those interested in how China has got to where it is and where it may be heading."-Bruce Dickson, George Washington University In this timely book, a group of leading scholars provides a comprehensive assessment of China's polity, economy, and society. Taking the thirtieth anniversary of Beijing's adoption of reform and opening as an occasion to reflect on the course of development over the past three decades, the contributors consider where the country may be going in the future. Just as China has had enormous success in developing its economy, it continues to face equally enormous challenges across a wide variety of issues, including inequality, social protest, energy, the environment, and a resurgence of religion. Authoritative, accessible, and current, this book will be an invaluable resource for all readers interested in the fate of a rising global power. About the Editor Joseph Fewsmith is professor of international relations and political science at Boston University.

Social assessment for projects in China is an important emerging field. This collection of essays - from authors whose formative work has influenced the policies that shape practice in development-affected communities - locates recent Chinese experience of the development of social assessment practices (including in displacement and resettlement) in a historical and comparative perspective. Contributors - social scientists employed by international development banks, national government agencies, and sub-contracting groups - examine projects from a practitioner's perspective. Real-life experiences are presented as case-specific praxis, theoretically informed insight, and pragmatic lessons-learned, grounded in the history of this field of development practice. They reflect on work where economic determinism reigns supreme, yet project failure or success often hinges upon sociopolitical and cultural factors.

Little attention has been devoted to studying Chinese politics at the elite, or national, level. It is particularly important to pay attention to the elite level at a time when Dengist China has given way to the Jiang Zemin era, when issues of China's role in the world stir controversy, and debates about China's "democratization" are prevalent. This book, by one of the leading Western authorities on the subject, describes China's national political climate in a manner that seeks to abstract the political dynamic at work.

In the 1990s China embarked on a series of political reforms intended to increase, however modestly, political participation to reduce the abuse of power by local officials. Although there was initial progress, these reforms have largely stalled and, in many cases, gone backward. If there were sufficient incentives to inaugurate reform, why wasn't there enough momentum to continue and deepen them? This book approaches this question by looking at a number of promising reforms, understanding the incentives of officials at different levels, and the way the Chinese Communist Party operates at the local level. The short answer is that the sort of reforms necessary to make local officials more responsible to the citizens they govern cut too deeply into the organizational structure of the party.
