It is more than three decades since China initiated its economic reform and open-door policies. During that period, China has successfully transformed itself from an inefficient centrally-planned economy to a fast-growing market-orientated economy. To the rest of the world, China has emerged from the condition of a poor and completely isolated nation to become the most powerful engine of global economic growth. China’s dynamic economic transition and development, especially its performance in the current world financial crisis, have attracted considerable worldwide interest.

This new Routledge collection answers the need for a reference work to allow researchers and students to gain a better understanding of the history and development of Chinese economic reform. The gathered classic and cutting-edge scholarship covers a wide range of critical issues in the modern Chinese economy, with the particular focus on the period after 1978 when China embarked on economic reform and integration into the global economy.

Economic Reform in Modern China is supplemented with a full index and includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.
