I got this as a textbook for one of my classes. It is a very thorough explanation of the forces behind modernization in China. As you read through the book though, you realize that you are being presented with a lot of information to support the author's opinions. The reading is dry enough to suck up a bath tub of water. Because of the blandness and author's opinions I stopped doing the full class assigned readings half way through the book.

The author presented quite a rosy picture on China. On privatization, this book praised the successful gradual approach of the government. On institutional reform and liberalization, the market forces and foreign investors seem to be transforming China into a "rational" and democratic system.

Although the author distances himself from the neoliberals on the issue about privatization, his logic on institutional transition and modernization nevertheless make him more of a neoliberal than otherwise. This book described the policy reforms and changes of social control mechanism nicely, but not the social problems and challenges resulted from the reform.

Optimism is fine, but downplaying the uncertainties and social ills associated with globalization is not. The excessive optimism of the book make it like an English version of a Chinese official textbook.
