Four Volume Set

As the most populated nation on earth with the fourth largest economy and the third largest trading country in the world, the study of contemporary China is currently one of the most popular subjects in the academia. The rise of China has fuelled an explosion of studies on its politics, economy and society in the past few decades.

This series, Contemporary China Studies, provides a much needed set of quality references for universities and lecturers to build their curricula and will also be a valuable tool to researchers undertaking a literature review. Furthermore, this series bridges some gaps in the state of the field by being the first to bring together the seminal writings in the field. It contains more than 100 carefully selected articles and book chapters focusing on the politics, economy and society of China since 1949. It will be grouped under two four-volume sets. Each set is self-contained with the first set dealing with politics and the second with economy and society.

Each volume includes a short introduction giving a summary of the existing scholarship on the historical legacies, development trajectory and current debates concerning the particular theme. Moreover, each four-volume set has a general introduction which pulls together the various themes to offer a general overview of the nature and development of the Chinese political order and its economy and society. They aim to show how each theme fits into one another, and how developments in the political, economic and social realms become mutually constitutive or contradictory in the formation of a unique order.
