This book introduces readers to the current social and economic state of China since its restructuring in 1949.

  • Provides insights into the targeted institutional change that is occurring simultaneously across the entire country
  • Presents context-rich accounts of how and why these changes connect to (if not contradict) regulatory logics established during the Mao-era
  • A new analytical framework that explicitly considers the relationship between state rescaling, policy experimentation, and path dependency
  • Prompts readers to think about how experimental initiatives reflect and contribute to the ‘national strategy’ of Chinese development
  • An excellent extension of ongoing theoretical work examining the entwinement of subnational regulatory reconfiguration, place-specific policy experimentation, and the reproduction of national economic advantage
