The Chinese State in the Era of Economic Reform: The Road to Crisis

Front Cover
M.E. Sharpe, 1991 - Business & Economics - 345 pages
This book seeks to assess the impact of the post-Mao market-oriented reforms on the Chinese state and its relations with society and the economy. It investigates the political and social consequences of an economic strategy which aims to introduce markets into a centrally-planned socialist economy of the Soviet type and investigates what changes have actually occurred in the organisational and political character of the Chinese state, the nature and scope of political participation, the managerial relationships between state agencies and productive enterprises and the nature of Chinese social structure and social attitudes. The book is a valuable source for those who wish to understand the complex and deep-rooted causes of the tragic events in Beijing in June 1989.
