At the end of the 1970s China was a poor country with a huge population, ruled by the Chinese Communist Party. The domestic economy was organized through direct administrative instructions and was isolated from the international economy. After a quarter of a century, China has been transformed beyond imagination.

In Transforming China Peter Nolan, one of the foremost experts on the Chinese economy, examines the enormous challenges faced by China's policymakers. Spanning a period of thirty years, from the late 1970s to the present day, the essays in this book address different aspects of those challenges. The `development' challenge involved devising policies that would raise the mass of the Chinese people out of poverty and avoid the disasters that had, in the worst cases, caused millions of deaths through famine. The `transition' challenge involved, firstly, resolving the relationship between change in the economic and political systems, and secondly, finding the correct sequence and nature of reforms necessary to improve economic performance. The "globalization" challenge involved identifying the way in which to integrate China's economic system with the international economy at a time of revolutionary change in the global business system.

Brought together in one collection for the first time, these seminal essays seek both to enhance understanding of China's immense success in meeting these challenges in the past, and to provide an indication of the challenges that still lie ahead. China's system reforms have been described as `groping for stones to cross the river'. The journey across the river is far from over, and the other bank is only dimly visible.
