Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the Chinese model of development. It aims to determine how the transition was engineered from a communist system focused on import-substitution to an export-led development strategy under a tutelary state. It also discusses the nature of the existing relations between the economy and polity of China. The chapter also examines the roles played by the Communist Party and other specific social forces and political actors in the formation of the China model. The long-term political impacts of the phenomenal economic growth of China are also tackled along with the future plans of the Chinese government in expanding trade and investment.
