Patterns Of China's Lost Harmony

RRP $805.99

Patterns of China's Lost Harmony blends historical documentation with contemporary assessment to determine the degree of human impact upon the country's vegetation, soils, water, air and wildlife.
This book introduces the development of environmental ideas as found in the ancient Chinese classics and traces the history of vegetation degradation. The pattern of land degradation is described with emphasis on soil erosion and desertification. Pollution, which increased dramatically throughout the 1980s, is analysed employing national statistics and local examples; the various policies recently introduced for pollution control are assessed. Wildlife management is scrutinised largely through a discussion of the evolution of China's nature reserve network. Regional variation in degradation and protection is stressed throughout.
Filling an important gap in the literature on China's environment by providing a comprehensive assessment of China's environment as of the early 1990s, this book will serve as an important reference tool, both for understanding the historical scope of environmental degradation and for assessing attempts to control environmental degradation since the 1980s.


Good Governance In China - A Way Towards Social Harmony

RRP $317.99

Good governance is necessary for effective public administration and delivery of public goods and services. This is an important issue for all countries, but in particular for rapidly developing countries such as China where reform of governance and public administration is a key element of the public policy agenda. This book explores the key issues in governance and public administration facing China's policy-makers today. Edited by Wang Mengkui, the former President of the Development Research Center of the State Council, and Chairman of the China Development Research Foundation - one of China's leading think-tanks - it contains 36 papers selected from nearly 300 case studies presented by participants in the China's Leaders in Development Executive Program. The authors are outstanding and experienced officials, and together represent the voice of China's new rising generation of leaders, policy-makers and officials. The cases are based on first-hand information and experiences either from the officials' personal involvement, or their own in-depth investigations. The chapters cover a wide range of issue areas, such as institutional reform, urban construction, social governance, crisis management, resource and ecological environmental management, education and public health, and economic reform and development. Taken together, it provides an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to understand China's own thinking on its governance and public administration.
