The China Handbook is the first volume in a series entitled Regional Handbooks of Economic Development: Prospects into the 21st Century. The aim of the book is “to address complex development issues in a manner accessible to academic and non-academic alike.” It contains twenty-one chapters, which are presented under four main headings: History, Regional Context, Political Economy and Development Policy, and Society and Human Dimensions of Development. The editor, Christopher Hudson, should be commended for inviting not only promising scholars but also recognized experts in the field to contribute chapters.
