The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022.

In Interpreting China's Development, leading experts on China provide an overview of this growing superpower, highlighting key issues in the country's political, economic and social development. Underpinned by up-to-date scholarly research yet written in a readable and concise style, this volume of over 40 short chapters offers a very accessible way to understanding the major events and dominant issues that had emerged in China over the last few decades. The essays are grouped under four thematic sections - challenges of governance, growth and structural changes, coping with rising social prob
Taiwanisation : its origin and politics by Wei Cai( )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have seen the emergence of a unique Taiwanese consciousness. What this so-called Taiwanisation is and how it came about are addressed in the first article. The evolution of this Taiwanese consciousness, and how it is perceived and presented by major political parties like the Democratic Progressive Party, the Kuomintang, the People First Party and the New Party, are then discussed. The process appears to be an irreversible one which might lead to Taiwan's self-determination.The second article offers a working definition of Taiwanisation. It then spells out the significance of unde
China's politics and economy in 2003 : meeting the post-congress challenges by John Wong( )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of China's politics and economy in 2003. With the new team of Chinese leaders at the helm following the successful hosting of the 16th Party Congress in November 2002, the attention of China's scholars has now shifted to the raft of challenges that await the new leadership. In the economic realm, there is unlikely to be any sharp changes in the direction of economic policy-making although the leadership faces a number of daunting issues, such as rising urban unemployment, potential rural unrest and the huge debt burden of state banks. In the political arena, power succession has only just begun even though leadership transition is almost complete. Jiang Zemin remains highly influential in his capacity as Chairman of the Central Military Commission. It is however unclear how the working relationship among the triumvirate Hu Jintao, Zeng Qinghong and Wen Jiabao will unfold. The jury is still out whether Hu Jintao can provide the leadership and vision to deal head-on with a number of burning issues, like corruption and the need for political reform
Taiwan's 2001 legislative, magistrates and mayors election : further consolidating democracy? by John Franklin Copper( )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In December 2001, Taiwan held an election that many observers said, in addition to the 2000 election that resulted in opposition party leader Chen Shui-bian winning the presidency, consolidated its democracy. This election made President Chen's party, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), the largest party in the legislature and gave him an opportunity to implement his agenda. President Chen had not been able to do so previously due to the opposition's large legislative majority and the political gridlock that had plagued Taiwan for some months. This book examines the political milieu in which the campaign was conducted, the candidates, party platforms and strategies, the campaign, and the results of the election. It also assesses the domestic and international responses to the election and its political ramifications." "The author argues that the DPP won using questionable tactics, thus diminishing its otherwise significant victory while creating doubts about the "Taiwan political miracle." The KMT lost badly. The People First Party, created by James Soong after the 2000 presidential election, performed very well in this election. Former president Lee Teng-hui helped found a new party shortly before this election to help President Chen by drawing support away from the KMT; it performed well." "The author concludes that the election mirrored Taiwan's new four-party system, which is divided into two camps. While the "green" bloc (the DPP and Lee's new party) performed well, the "blue" team (the KMT and Soong's party) won a majority. Taiwan's party politics, the author says, remain in flux." "Readership: Academics, graduate students and undergraduates with an interest in Taiwan and Taiwan-China."--BOOK JACKET

China's WTO accession and the impact on its large manufacturing enterprises by Guy Shaojia Liu( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest success of Chinese enterprise reform has been the creation of market competition. Competition has forced the state to retreat from non-strategic sectors and increased private ownership in the industry. This development has created ownership diversification in the Chinese industry, which is in line with the leadership's 2-R ("Retreat and Retain") enterprise reform policy. The ownership diversification is a distinction of the reformed economy, called "a socialist economy with Chinese characteristics". The backbone of the economy is the large state firms in strategic sectors, largely

Modernization and Chinese entrepreneurship by Yaoji Jin( )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sino-US trade accord and China's accession to the World Trade Organization by John Wong( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Sino-US trade accord signed in November 1999 in Beijing set a milestone for China's protracted journey towards becoming a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO). China hailed it as a win-win deal. The trade accord showed the commitment of the Chinese government to further transform China into a market economy. The liberalisation measures set forth in the accord may bring about the rise of the private enterprises and further expansion of the services markets, from banking to professional services. However, the implementation of the reform represents a challenge to the Chinese government in managing the potential surge in urban and rural unemployment and the stability of the banking sector. This paper analyses the details of the Sino-US trade accord and its implications for the Chinese economy
China's economy and the Asian financial crisis by John Wong( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China after the Ninth National People's Congress : meeting cross-century challenges by John Wong( )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's Ninth National People's Congress (NPC), convened in March 1998, established a new NPC and a new cabinet. Is NPC still much like a "rubber stamp" as before? Will the new chairman, Li Peng, follow his predecessor, Qiao Shi, use it as a base to expand his power in competition with Jiang Zemin and Zhu Rongji? More importantly, Zhu Rongji is now the new premier. What are his development strategies for China's economy? He has set out to shake up China's unwieldy bureaucracy and to reform its loss-making state-owned enterprises. Can he still accomplish his ambitions in the face of rising unemployment (xiagang)? How will Jiang Zemin manage his relations with both Li Peng and Zhu Rongji?Based on an in-depth analysis of the latest developments in China, this Occasional Paper contains three separate articles, addressing the above issues in order to provide a new perspective on China's fast-changing political economy in the post-Deng era.

Chinese foreign investment laws : recent developments towards a market economy by Huaqun Zeng( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1993, Chinese foreign investment laws (CFILs) have been moving towards the common principles of foreign investment laws in market economies. This volume summarises four features of the common principles and surveys four aspects of recent developments of CFILs towards these principles -- namely, expanding the economic sectors for foreign direct investment (FDI), allowing multiple forms or types of FDI, granting national treatment of FDI step by step, and pursuing transparency of CFILs; and finally comments on the significance of recent developments of CFILs. The author points out that recent developments of CFILs towards a common approach have made great positive impacts on FDI to China, treatment of FDI in China and structural adjustment of CFILs."
China's regional economic disparities since 1978 : main trends and determinants by Xiaowen Tian( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variation in market orientation in individual regions and the weakening of government intervention in regional income redistribution have been mainly responsible for the changes in China's regional economic disparities since 1978. This study suggests that China should accelerate economic growth of its backward interior regions by deepening market-oriented reforms on the one hand, and by strengthening fiscal transfers from richer to poorer regions on the other
China's new oil development strategy taking shape by John Wong( )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A surge in demand for oil due to rapid economic growth and stagnation in domestic oil output has turned China into a net oil importer since 1993. Faced with increasing reliance on imports to meet its domestic needs, China now places a high priority on securing long-term stability of its oil supply in the next century. Hence a new oil development strategy focuses on boosting the domestic oil industry and exploiting overseas resources. In this regard, China has pursued an active "oil diplomacy" by signing international oil deals with a diverse range of nations from Central Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, in particular a series of deals worth US$6 billion with Kazakhstan, Iraq and Venezuela in June 1997. While the overseas ventures will no doubt facilitate China's integration with the world economy, such internationalisation of China's oil industry will also carry significant geoeconomic and geopolitical implications for oil-consuming countries
China's politics and economy in 1999 : coping with crises by Yongnian Zheng( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What the Jiang Zemin leadership faced in 1999 can be characterized by a century-old Chinese saying, neiyou waihuan (literally, "internal disturbance and external threat"). What with the worst growth record in a decade, the Falun Gong sect's siege of Zhongnanhai, Nato's bombing of the Chinese embassy in Yugoslavia, and Lee Teng-hui's new "two-state" theory, the Chinese leadership was under tremendous pressure throughout the year. Many have wondered if that leadership could still hold its own at the turn of the century. This volume provides the reader with an in-depth analysis of how the Chinese leadership coped with the crises during the year. Though there was fair success in managing those crises, serious crises lie ahead which could significantly impact the leadership. China's economic slowdown may be bottoming out, but increasing Party decay, a growing spiritual vacuum, and volatile cross-strait relations are likely to pose serious threats to the leadership
China's anti-drug campaign in the reform era by Yongming Zhou( )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with the re-emergence of the drug problem in China in the reform era and the ways in which the authorities deal with it. Riding on a sweeping victory over the nationalists, the newly established communist government in the early 1950s was thorough and decisive in stamping out the drug problem that had plagued the country for centuries. What made the Chinese government's effort effective then were mass campaigns and China's almost total isolation from the outside world. In the reform era, however, with marketization and the country's increasing integration into the capitalist
Southeast Asian studies in China by Conference on Southeast Asian Studies in China( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, a project of the ASEAN-China Study Programme of ISEAS, is designed to promote a better understanding between the people of the two regions as China continues to exert a dominant political and economic presence in Southeast Asia. Needless to say, scholars and academics from both sides have a significant role to play in terms of creating greater awareness of each other through research, workshops, and conferences. Whilst many universities and research institutes in the ASEAN region are conducting studies on various aspects of China, it is equally important for the Chinese counterparts to be fully engaged in Southeast Asian Studies in order to deepen their knowledge of the region for mutual benefit. The book traces the development of Southeast Asian Studies in China, discusses the current status of these studies, examines the problems encountered in the pursuit of these studies, and attempts to evaluate their prospects in the years ahead"--ISEAS Publications Unit
