About this product
- DescriptionDevelopmental Dilemmas singles out land as an object of study and places it in the context of one of the world's largest and most populous countries undergoing institutional reform: the People's Republic of China. The book demonstrates that private property protected by law, the principle of 'getting-the-prices-right', and the emergence of effectively functioning markets are the outcome of a given society's historical development and institutional fabric. Peter Ho argues that the successful creation of new institutions hinges in part on choice and timing in relation to the particular constellation of societal, ecomic, political and cultural parameters. Disregarding these could result in rising inequality, bad land stewardship, and the eruption of land-related grievances.
- Author BiographyPeter Ho is Professor of International Development Studies and concurrent Director of the Centre for Development Studies at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. He is member of the Academic Committee of the International Institute for Asian Studies in Leiden and member of the Steering Committee of the European Conference on Agriculture and Rural Development in China.
