This book, first published in 1987, studies the forces promoting underdevelopment in China prior to 1949 and the character of the development that has occurred since then. It presents a unified perspective for grasping the development process as a whole, for relating this to the class structure of China, and for considering development in the context of Chinese efforts to carry out a transition to socialism.
