MEDIA REVIEWS
A masterful account of how and why carbon trading has come to the forefront in China. This book is packed with insights into Chinese climate policy and Chinese government in general, showing how climate policy is inextricably linked to a discourse of nationalism and state-led development.' - John S. Dryzek, Centenary Professor and Australian Research Council Laureate Fellow, University of Canberra, Australia

'Alex Lo's new book is a timely and much needed contribution to the field of climate change mitigation policy. As the top ranked carbon polluting nation, the world's second largest economy and a developing economy working hard to eliminate the scourge of poverty, China's adoption of carbon trading as a mitigation policy instrument is of historic significance. Dr Lo's expert analysis of the economic dimension of China's carbon trading policies is enriched by a persuasive and critical analysis of its history and geopolitical roles.' - Brendan Mackey, Professor and Director, Griffith Climate Change Response Program, Griffith University, and Regional Councilor for Oceania, International Union for Conservation of Nature, Australia
