Editorial Reviews

'What a marvelous contribution to scholarship! This empirically rich and theoretically informed book by Andrew Wells-Dang makes a powerful argument for the centrality of networks in contemporary Chinese and Vietnamese civil societies. The comparative analysis of China and Vietnam is a significant achievement in itself.' - Ben Kerkvliet, Emeritus Professor, The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia
