Reviews

'The focus of this work is on the problem of 'governance,' the effective exercise of authority over society and society's acknowledgement of that authority, an issue of both practical and intellectual current relevance. The book is certainly timely now.' - Peter R. Moody, Professor of Political Science, University of Notre Dame, France

'To what extent can power be legitimized by governance that is good, though not democratic in procedural terms? This volume gives answers from a mostly Chinese perspective and will certainly trigger much debate among scholars interested in China's evolving state-society relationship.' - Gunter Schubert, Chair of Greater China Studies, University of Tuebingen, Germany
