"Chinese Economic Reform" looks beyond the recent economic success of China, by focusing specifically on the pivotal role of the People's Liberation Army in the economy as a means of consolidating its power. The contributors address a wide range of topics, including the PLA's business activities, military industry and conversion, and arms sales. China's relationship with the rest of the world is evaluated in the context of this situation and the implications for her defence policy outlined. This is the first book to carefully examine the economic reform on defence and includes a controversial and fascinating chapter on the staggering corruption in the army.

Industry Reviews

""Chinese Economic Reform deserves to reach a large audience. This is an important collection of well-written essays on the impact of China's economic reforms on the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and its activities both inside and outside China.... [This] is an excellent book." -"China Review Internationaln ..."this well-crafted book is an innovative effort to clarify the linkage between China's economic reform and its evolving security policy. As such, it accomplishes its mission well and should assist scholars and policy-makers alike in comprehending and coping with China's emerging great power status in the next millennium." -"The Journal of Asian Studies
