Managed Chaos: The Fragility of the Chinese Miracle

Managed Chaos: The Fragility of the Chinese Miracle reads into the Chinese politics and economy and the disparate status and position of the two domains. On one hand, its economy has sustained a near 10 per cent growth rate for 30 years, while, on the other, trapped in an incomplete transition from a totalitarian to a democratic market economy, politically, the country is still considered a fragile state. This book helps the reader resolve this incongruity through its inference that this disparity is rooted in Chinese politics.
