Economic Transitions with Chinese Characteristics: Social Change During Thirty Years of Reformexplores a broad set of issues from an economic perspective. It addresses issues ranging from land tenure and housing to migration, labour markets, healthcare, demographics, and more. After 30 years of incredibly rapid economic growth, standards of living in China have increased appreciably and many families have been raised from poverty. New concerns, such as economic inequality and environmental degradation, are, however, arising. Economic issues related to China's reforms are explored in an accessible manner by a wide array of Chinese and international scholars who use this anniversary to take stock of, and provide insight into, the remarkable transitions underway.Contributorsinclude Bruce Anderson (Queen's University), Gordon Betcherman (World Bank), John Cai (Fudan University), Jie Chen (Fudan University), Zhao Chen (Fudan University), Weili Ding (Queen's University), Julan Du (Chinese University of Hong Kong), Peilei Fan (Michigan State University), Emily M.
