'This impressive collection of twenty chapters provides a comprehensive, penetrating, and timely analysis of China's remarkable economic transformation in the past three decades, one of the most significant economic events with global importance. All of the chapters are written by some of today's most active experts on China's economy, and many chapters jointly with the distinguished experts in the specific area of the discipline. The authors do not analyze China's case in isolation but place it in the general context of economic development and transition and the experiences of other economies; and they do not simply amass the numbers but interpret the data in light of economic theories. It is a valuable book for those who want to gain an in-depth knowledge about China's economic achievements, shortcomings, and challenges.' Yingyi Qian, University of California, Berkeley
