About this product
- DescriptionThe transition from a planned to a market ecomy that began in China in the late 1970s unleashed an extraordinary series of changes, including increases in private enterprise, foreign investment, the standard of living, and corruption. Ather result of ecomic reform has been the creation of a new class - China's new business elite. Margaret M. Pearson considers the impact that this new class is having on China's politics. She concludes that, contrary to the assumptions of Westerners, these groups are t at the forefront of the emergence of a civil society; rather, they are part of a system shaped deliberately by the Chinese state to ensure that ecomic development will t lead to democratization.
