Review quote

This book stands out as an excellent collection on the subject of contemporary Chinese politics. A wide range of research methodologies are employed in the book's chapters. The research presented in this book suggests appropriate paths for future academic research on Chinese political development and thus serves a wide international audience. This collection represents an important contribution to the literature on recent Chinese political development. -- Lin Ye, Roosevelt University Journal of Chinese Political Science China's tumultuous twentieth century has been followed by years of astonishingly rapid growth, but growth itself poses deep challenges for China's economics, politics, and basic value system. The authors of this volume combine disciplinary expertise with direct experience of China's daily reality to present a broad array of studies of the challenges that will shape the future of China and thereby touch the world. -- Brantly Womack, University of Virginia The essays presented here demonstrate quite effectively that there are many different stakeholders with an interest in rural China, and a diverse array of ideas about how rural communities ought to be organized. This informative collection offers thoughtful insight on contemporary development trends and will be of interest to many scholars concerned with the rhetoric, and dynamics, of new organizational forms in the Chinese countryside.
