MEDIA REVIEWS
`This enlightening book benefits from the seasoned editorial hands of two leading scholars of state-sector restructuring in China. It provides historical, domestic regional, and policy perspectives on the dynamics of discontinuous growth in the Chinese steel industry. . . The book is highly recommended for scholars and students of development economics, economic history, industry analysis, politics and public policy of enterprise reform, and business management .' -- Kun-Chin Lin, The China Journal
`China today produces nearly half of the world's steel and is the world's largest importer of iron ore. Steel has been a central part of China's rapid growth story, but it is also a source of many problems that range from the Chinese industry's environmental impact to the problems associated with the continued dominance of the sector's state-owned enterprises. This book of chapters edited by Ligang Song and Haimin Liu is a major and comprehensive contribution to this important topic.' -- Dwight Perkins, Harvard University Department of Economics, US
`Chinese economic reform and opening to the international economy since the late 1970s have changed the country and the world. The developments in the steel industry through the reform period are central to those changes, illuminative of them, and of immense significance in themselves. This book throws new light on these historic changes for Chinese and foreign readers alike.' -- From the foreword by Ross Garnaut, University of Melbourne, Australia
