Reviews and Awards
"Peerenboom's appraisal deserves to be heard: it will help the general public who are interested in China and encourage policymakers to reassess their views. "--THES
"Perceptive."--David Smith, The Sunday Times (Culture)
"Randy Peerenboom has jumped with vigor and data into the ever deepening debate over how to view China. Going beyond the previous focus on the economic aspects of the East Asian Model, he shows that the EAM has served China well and suggests that other countries may also learn from China's experiences. Sure to set off debate, China Modernizes is a must read."--Joseph Fewsmith, Professor of International Relations and Political Science, Boston University
"This thought-provoking book and major contribution to studies of law and development, globalization and modernization is essential reading for all those interested in understanding the nature and implications of China's 'model of development'. No matter whether this message pleases readers, the case definitely needs to be heard."--Professor Albert H.Y. Chen, Faculty of Law, University of Hong Kong
