China at the Brink: The Political Economy of Reform and Retrenchment in the Post-Mao Era

Synopsis

As a Western economist studying and working abroad, Lichtenstein witnessed first-hand China's tumultuous cycle of reform and retrenchment in the 1980s. From the early euphoric stage to the last and most brutal episode, Lichtenstein describes and explains the economics behind this cycle and ties together the economic, political, and cultural aspects of the reform era. This work also chronicles the achievements, problems, events, and political controversies that led up to the Tiananmen Square debacle and the subsequent retrenchment away from the broad goals of reform.
