This book is about the changing role of the Chinese state during the transition from central planning to a civil society with a market economy. The discussion as a whole supports the case for a Chinese state that is vigorous and active, but in different ways than in the past. This book contains the most up-to-date Human Development Index (HDI) numbers for China's provinces as well as the Gender Development Index.
