Product Description


Corruption in Transitional China is an invaluable and informative volume for anyone interested in corruption issues and anti-corruption policies not only in China but applicable elsewhere.

This is the first-ever work offering comprehensive quantitative and qualitative analyses of the manifestation and determinants of corruption throughout China between 1979 and 2012. Among other observations, the evolutionary process in the nature and forms of corruption are closely related to changes in Chinese government economic and fiscal policies. It is so comprehensive it could be used as a reference work while parts of it read like a novel as the author illustrates types of corruption with typical cases.

This research is descriptive and exploratory. With no centralized national data statistics, this work is based on five years of personal painstaking research by the author to gather 33 years’ data covering all 31 Provinces of China from Procuratorate Year Books and Working Reports and other official announcements and proclamations by the central government agencies.

The author clearly identifies three stages of social, economic, and political evolution as well as three stages of corruption, each with identifiable patterns with different dominant corruption types and law enforcement anti-corruption effects.

Earning her PhD in Public Policy from the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, Dr. Meng offers a concrete foundation for further anti-corruption theoretical analyses that are applicable to other countries facing similar problems by setting forth a series of specific anti-corruption policy recommendations.

This is the 2nd en revised edition.

This book provides in-depth analysis on the spectacular expansion of the legal system in China, which results from the consistent decentralization reform in 1978. This book is composed of 8 chapters. Following the introductory chapter, Chapter 2 spells out that in China the decentralized legislative powers have become not only one of the most important source of authority of local governments but also an important means to exercise other decentralized powers, which serves to ensure a common market. Chapters 3 to 5 examine the legislative systems of the National People’s Congress, its standing committee, the State Council and local governments (provincial and city-level PC, PCSC and people’s governments). The 2015 revised Law on Legislation, on the one hand, grants legislative power to all city-level governments, representing the continuous trend of legislative decentralization; on the other hand, it largely reduces city-level legislative powers, reflecting an attempt to tighten the control of the exercise of the local legislative power. Chapters 6 and 7 evaluate two unique local legislative systems in autonomous areas and Special Economic Zones (SEZs) respectively. Contrary to the autonomous areas, where legislative power is underused, SEZs consistently expand their legislative power. As a result, by using such power, SEZs played a key role for introducing the legal system on the market economy in China. It ultimately gathered the momentum for turning the tide of contestation in the ideological, economic and policy domains in favor of a market system, and created conditions favorable for the market-oriented legislation at national level. Lastly, this book discusses the limitations of the reform and provides recommendations for future legislative development.
