Review quote

For novices of the Chinese economy, China's Economic Development, 1950-2014 by Professor Chu-yuan Cheng is an excellent introduction that provides sound direction for further studies. For experienced readers, this is a systematic overview of Chinese economic development based on meticulous analyses and insightful interpretations. In a sense, Professor Cheng's latest book is a comprehensive summary of his own works in Chinese economics during his long academic career. It may serve as a model for senior authors who wish to present their scholarship in a similarly reflective and responsible manner. -- Cho-Yee To, University of Michiganshow more
