Remaking The Chinese Leviathan: Market Transition And The Politics Of Governance In China
by Yang Dali L.
About This Book
In this provocative, important study, Dali Yang examines a wide range of governance reforms in the People's Republic of China, including administrative rationalization, divestiture of businesses operated by the military, and the building of anticorruption mechanisms, to analyse how China's leaders have reformed existing institutions and constructed new ones to cope with unruly markets, curb corrupt practices, and bring about a regulated economic order.
Though still a work in progress, taken together these reforms, Yang argues, have improved the institutional environment for economic development and altered the landscape for China's ongoing struggle against rampant corruption. These measures are also likely to have important implications for the exercise of governmental authority and for China's future political development.
The appendix lays out the composition of the Chinese State Council. With bibliography, notes and index.
