Description

Traditionally, political scientists and economists have seen China as a single entity and business people have seen China as a single market. This book challenges the notion of a centralised and unified China, and outlines how provinces are taking on new economic and political roles, forced upon them by decentralisation.It is the most thorough data on contemporary Chinese provinces available and will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students of politics, economics and business as well as Asian studies.

Reviews

'The book … is a source of rich information covering the specific circumstances of the province, the relationship between provinces and other regional divisions, and the economic interaction and competition between provinces. On the whole, this publication has made a positive contribution to understanding the political economy of China's provinces.' - Anja Lahtinen, Studia Orientalia, 2007
