The Economic Rise of China, Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Zhi Wang (Editor), Eleftherios Giovanis (Editor), Nikolaos Karagiannis (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology/Edited Book


This book seeks to reinvigorate debates on the growing forces influencing China’s social and economic evolution. It draws attention to several neglected areas in the discussion of China’s rapid economic expansion, such as unbalanced growth, mass internal migration, international labour flows, and disparities in access to education, public health, and housing.

China’s rapid economic development has attracted the interest of many scholars following its emergence as the world’s second largest economy and stimulated research into the underlying factors that have made this development unique. In advancing research, the chapters included in this edited book help with refining our understanding of the forces that have been driving China’s social- economic, political, institutional and technological developments, addressing the related issues, thus, advancing the social economic literature within the China context. This book serves the interests of scholars who seek to understand more fully the development of China as well as of other emerging economies.

One of the chapters in this volume was originally published in the Review of Evolutionary Political Economy. Other chapters were originally published in the Forum for Social Economics.
