About this book

In this edited volume, leading environmental policy experts from China, USA, and Europe provide a contemporary view of Chinese environmental policy, analyzing current discussions among various actors and agencies. The book covers a wide range of topics including the gap between national policy goals and their local implementation, cultural and social factors shaping political behavior, legal and political systems affecting environmental policy creation and execution, new societal forces participating in environmental policymaking and governance, and local state strategies tasked with navigating a mix of political, legal, and societal forces. Featuring in-depth, empirically-grounded analyses with interdisciplinary approaches, the book is ideal reading for scholars interested in the complex nature of balancing Chinese environmental sustainability and economic growth.

Reviews

'China's current environmental governance system is, as the title of this book suggests, in a critical juncture of transition. This edited volume is an excellent survey of the environmental challenges faced by Chinese government and society in the twenty-first century. This comprehensive and valuable policy-related discussion of Chinese environmental policy considers the opportunities and limits China faces as it seeks to balance environmental protection and sustainable development. This book will add significantly to the literature on China's environmental crisis. It will attract a great deal of interest in the field and is well-suited to use in university classes.'
