Given China's rapid development, many observers assert that world economic growth and key economic indicators are now depending on the country alone, including the prospects of the dollar, the Euro, oil prices, industrial commodities, global equity markets and bond prices. On the other hand, China faces a number of major social and economic challenges which could undermine future growth, such as prevalent corruption, financial crime, and the relative lack of the rule of law.

Financial Crime in China builds upon original research into the topic and offers a never-before-seen look at the systemic spread of state-controlled corruption in the form of bank fraud, securities fraud, insider trading, and Ponzi schemes. Cheng presents an authentic picture of financial crime in China by identifying the latest manifestations, analyzing empirical data and case studies, and drawing conclusions about the origin, characteristics, dynamics, and developmental features of financial criminality in the context of political economy.

"Cheng has presented a multi-layered story of the forms of corruption and the party-state's measures against corruption in a highly dynamic China of today, full of risks and opportunities." - Liqun Cao, Professor of Sociology, University of Ontario Institute of Technology, co-editor of The Routledge Handbook of Chinese Criminology

"Despite its growing importance as both a domestic and international problem, white-collar crime in China remains relatively understudied among scholars throughout the world. Cheng provides a highly informative and detailed analysis of Chinese financial crime stemming from the fundamental incompatibility between the current market economy and China's continuing authoritarian rule. Drawing on official data, news reports, and case studies, the book challenges and expands upon current criminological notions of white-collar crime and offers numerous valuable insights for future research." - Henry N. Pontell, Distinguished Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, USA; co-author of Profit Without Honor: White-Collar Crime and the Looting of America
