Review quote

Integrating theoretical, policy, and quantitative and qualitative perspectives, this rich and detailed study should be instrumental in bringing an important and relatively neglected topic to a wider audience. -- Martin Powell, University of Bath Chack-kie Wong, Vai Io Lo, and Kwong-leung Tang, all highly regarded scholars of social policy in East Asia, especially China, have written the first English language assessment of urban health care reform in the world's most populous nation.

This illuminating book is essential reading for anyone interested in economic and social development in China today. -- Michael Sherraden, director, Center for Social Development, Washington University in St. Louisshow more
