Ann Florini, Hairong Lai, and Yeling Tan set their analysis in a comparative context, investigating how Chinas changing understanding of key governance tools and concepts compares withand is influenced bydevelopments and debates elsewhere. China Experiments draws on several specific cases to show how local authorities have responded to the challenges posed by Beijings rapid transformation. The book thus differs from others on Chinese governance that focus on the pronouncements of intellectuals, and it is unique in its detailed, empirically grounded analysis.
The introduction sets the context and raises key overarching questions. It addresses among other factors the wide variety of experiments underway by which authorities are trying to adapt local governance structures to new demands. Chapters 25 then explore the factors driving various specific governance reforms in China. Each chapter explains the importance of various types of reforms in terms of implications for governance, provides international and national context, and draws upon specific case studies. The final chapter suggests a series of criteria by which Chinas political trajectory can be assessed.
