China's Social Development and Policy : into the Next Stage?, Hardback Book

China's Social Development and Policy : into the Next Stage? Hardback

Edited by Litao Zhao

Part of the China Policy Series series


In China, social development has fallen far behind economic development.

This book looks at why this is the case, and poses the question of whether the conditions, structures and institutions that have locked China into unbalanced development are changing to pave the way for the next stage of development.

Based on an empirical examination of ideological, structural and institutional transformations that have shaped China's development experiences, the book analyses China's reform and development in the social domain, including pension, healthcare, public housing, ethnic policy, and public expenditure on social programs.

The book moves beyond descriptive analyses to understand the role of broader changes in shaping and redefining the pattern of development in China.
