In this volume, Keun Lee has presented a throughly documented framework for understanding not only the progress and problems of China's past reform efforts, but also the measures which must be undertaken if future initiatives are to lead to more beneficial results. The book draws from the literature of socialist enterprise models and Western agency and property rights discourse and focuses on the evaluation of reform efforts in Chinese state enterprises.
Integrating topics in urban development, real estate, higher education administration, urban design, and campus landscape architecture, this is the first book to explore the role of the university as developer. Accessible and clearly written, and including contributions from authorities in a wide range of related areas, it offers a rich array of case studies and analyses that clarify the important roles that universities play in the growth and development of cities. The cases describe a host of university practices, community responses, and policy initiatives surrounding university real estate development. Through a careful blending of academic analysis and practical, hands-on administrative and political information, the book charts new ground in the study of the university and the city.
