The democratic developmental state : politics and institutional design by Mark Robinson( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 330 libraries worldwide
"The central inquiry of this new study concerns the extent to which it is possible to strive towards a new form of developmental state that can promote broad-based and equitable development in the context of legitimized, inclusive democracy. The argument running through this book is that there is scope for continuous political intervention in the design of democratic institutions that shape the context of state-led development initiatives. Institutional arrangements that foster political participation, the dispersion of political power, and increased representation by women and other disadvantaged groups can make democratic regimes more sensitive to issues of poverty, social welfare, and gender discrimination through remedial action and policy commitments."--Jacket

In search of civil society : market reform and social change in contemporary China by Gordon White( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
Since 1978, China has pursued sweeping economic change in an officially sponsored transition from a Stalinist centrally planned economy to a socialist market economy. China's reformers have highlighted the need to curb the awesome power of the Leninist state and change the balance of power between state and economy, state and society. In practice, the economic reforms have set in train a process of potentially fundamental social and institutional change in China which is creating new socio-economic forces, shifting power in their direction, and raising the possibility of political transformation. This book explores the extent to which this experience can be described and understood in terms of the idea of 'civil society', defined in sociological terms as the emergence of an autonomous sphere of voluntary associations capable of organizing the interests of emergent socio-economic groups and counterbalancing the hitherto unchallenged dominance of the Marxist-Leninist state

The Chinese state in the era of economic reform : the road to crisis by Gordon White( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
This book seeks to assess the impact of the post-Mao market-oriented reforms on the Chinese state and its relations with society and the economy. It investigates the political and social consequences of an economic strategy which aims to introduce markets into a centrally-planned socialist economy of the Soviet type and investigates what changes have actually occurred in the organisational and political character of the Chinese state, the nature and scope of political participation, the managerial relationships between state agencies and productive enterprises and the nature of Chinese social structure and social attitudes. The book is a valuable source for those who wish to understand the complex and deep-rooted causes of the tragic events in Beijing in June 1989
