The past several years have brought economic, commercial, and investment revolution to China where a consumer society is beginning to emerge. By putting China's trade and economic relations into global and regional perspectives, US-China Trade examines how this phenomenon will affect trade with the United States. The contributors come from a wide range of scholarly and business fields, giving the book a unique combination of breadth and specificity. Among the issues covered are China's changing economic role; the legal environment surrounding investment; the problems and resource opportunities associated with doing business with China; and negotiation strategies. The volume also focuses on the practical business techniques, strategies, and practices peculiar to China, making it informative reading to scholars and students of China's trade relations and economic policies.

Editorial Reviews

?A collection of papers dealing with the evolution, determinants, and future development of trade between the US and China. Following an introductory section, three papers cover the recent history of the Chinese economy and the role of politics in that context, and two papers treat the legal framework. This is followed by a section dealing with problems of doing business in China (such as barriers posed by the bureaucracy, countertrade and offset requirements, and financing issues) as well as practical questions related to business conduct. Another section on opportunities for US-China trade focuses on industrial planning, the role of technology transfer, energy telecommunications, electronics, and weapons trade. The final section focuses on the process of negotiating in China at the level of the enterprise as well as the government. The volume is aimed more at the business professional than at the scholar, however, it provides a number of useful insights into how Chinese economy currently interfaces with the West, and the US in particular. Excellent bibliography.?-Choice
