Review quote

[Hsu] carries out rigorous academic analysis to explore in case studies in both Beijing and Shanghai how the central government, the municipal government, street neighborhood entities, and residents' committees interact to address issues involving migrant workers ... This well-done study contributes to understanding Chinese politics and, more generally, how local governmental units operate with some independence under authoritarian central governments. -- J. A. Rhodes, Luther College * CHOICE *
