Reviews

'A timely constituent of the literature aimed at understanding China, this book provides a comprehensive coverage on every aspect of the market, from shares as an investment instrument to the migrating corporate structure to the regulatory environment to the market trend. It therefore makes a valuable reference book in its own right. The book's usefulness is matched with stimulating observations. While it consistently focuses on the fundamental purpose of stock market, the stories are also revealing and sometimes humorous. The book is compelling reading for anyone interested in China's fast-changing equity market'. - Qian Ouyang, Executive Vice President, CITIC Industrial Bank, Beijing

'The book will answer many questions that people in a number of fields have about what has been going on with the SOE's and the stock market. I think it is destined to become the standard reference work on the subject.' - Jean C.Oi, Director, Centre for East Asian Studies, Stanford University, California
