An excellent insight into the foundations of China's economic transformation, 17 Nov. 2012
This book provides a clear insight into the development of China's economic system based not only on previous theory but also on a huge number of qualitative research conducted through in depth interviews that provide a 'behind the scenes' insight into China's economic development from two authors who have spent a huge amount of time doing on the ground research to really understand the fundamentals behind China's rise to being an economic superpower.
Additionally, the book is concise, highly readable and overflowing with insights and quotes that would be extremely useful to any economics student seeking to understand more about China's economy or the role of institutions in economic development globally.
