China’s development: Limits to liberalization

In the current issue of Governance, Phillippe Ratte of the Fondation Prospective et Innovation in Paris reviews China’s Regulatory State: A New Strategy for Globalization by Roselyn Hsueh of Temple University.  “China only appears to be a more liberal state,” Hsueh argues. The introduction of market principles has been accompanied by creation of new forms of control to protect state interests.   “This book is a major contribution both to understanding China’s growth better, and to opening up a new way of thinking about development,” Ratte concludes.  Free access to the review.
