'The book provides an illuminating map of ... three fields of contemporary China studies, and will be of great interest to specialists seeking new ideas and insights on how their work fits into the broader trends on contemporary China studies.' - Robert Sutter, The China Journal, No 58, July 2007
'The whole book repays careful reading, but for those short of time the papers by Cabestan, Obashi and Baum should not be missed. Their virtue is that they combine valuable descriptions of what is happening with particularly good explanations of the structural factors shaping their fields' - Christopher Howe, The China Quarterly, 196, December 2008
