Modern Chinese Legal Reform

New Perspectives

Edited by Xiaobing Li and Qiang Fang
China's rapid socioeconomic transformation of the past twenty years has led to dramatic changes in its judicial system and legal practices. As China becomes more powerful on the world stage, the global community has dedicated more resources and attention to understanding the country's evolving democratization, and policymakers have identified the development of civil liberties and long-term legal reforms as crucial for the nation's acceptance as a global partner.

Modern Chinese Legal Reform is designed as a legal and political research tool to help English-speaking scholars interpret the many recent changes to China's legal system. Investigating subjects such as constitutional history, the intersection of politics and law, democratization, civil legal practices, and judicial mechanisms, the essays in this volume situate current constitutional debates in the context of both the country's ideology and traditions and the wider global community.

Editors Xiaobing Li and Qiang Fang bring together scholars from multiple disciplines to provide a comprehensive and balanced look at a difficult subject. Featuring newly available official sources and interviews with Chinese administrators, judges, law-enforcement officers, and legal experts, this essential resource enables readers to view key events through the eyes of individuals who are intimately acquainted with the challenges and successes of the past twenty years.

Reviews

""A well-balanced scholarly examination of the many important aspects of legal reform in China. This volume is a welcome addition to the literature.""—Steven I. Levine, University of Montana

"Those teaching and researching Chinese law and politics will want to spend some time with this book, including the very helpful timeline of legal reform in the beginning. The book will appeal particularly to those with less expertise and familiarity with technical jargon, as its presentation is very clear and user-friendly."—The China Journal
