The Chinese economy under transition( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book consists of a number of papers presented to the Chinese Economic Association (UK) Annual Conferences in the late 1990s. They address many important issues in China's economy under transition." "In addition to the analyses of specific issues provided by individual papers, themes recurring in several contribute to broader theoretical, empirical and policy literatures. Some focus on the comparative literature on transition economies of China and Eastern European and former Soviet Union countries; some apply new methodologies to the analysis of economic issues such as money demand, consumption behaviour and industrial structural change; while others focus on policy and institutional reforms. Most contributors are experienced China scholars from the United Kingdom, France, the United States of America as well as from China itself."--Jacket
Asian politics in development : essays in honour of Gordon White by Gordon White Memorial Conference( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume adopts a multidisciplinary and comparative approach to development that brings together issues that are characteristic of the lifelong scholarship of Professor Gordon White. These include a focus on the state, civil society, welfare and globalization. The range of disciplines represented including political science, economics, sociology and social and economic anthropology and a regional focus on China, India and East Asia gives rise to an unusually creative and synergistic set of ideas for thinking about the various meanings of politics in development
Social protection as development policy : Asian perspectives by Sarah Cook( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerned that in the pre-2008 growth scenario, there was a danger that the lessons of the Asian crisis of the late 1990s would be forgotten, this volume underscores the need for policy makers to see social protection not only as a response to risk and crisis, but to integrate it into the mainstream development agenda in order to create trajectories out of poverty and vulnerability. Significantly, taking into account both deeply entrenched forms of poverty and social exclusion as well as new forms of vulnerability being created in the process of rapid growth and globalisation, it also cautions against a one-size-fits-all approach to social protection. --Book Jacket
