[The author] has written this book to convey the reader how the Chinese state functions. For this, he has widened the scope of enquiry to include the interaction of China’s economic system with its political system, and made a fairly good job of explaining the past pattern of its development…. Jha has blended the story quite skillfully and it will be worthwhile for one to fully read this book.
The incisive analysis of the vulnerabilities of the Chinese economy presented in this book is supported by a mass of statistics and data. Jha’s research is thorough and derives from Western and Chinese studies. Managing Chaos is a serious work. The book is essential reading for those trying to understand the Chinese economic miracle.
The book gives a balanced view of China's political economy and is highly recommended for China watchers.
I would definitely recommend that you pick up a copy of Jha’s book. Brilliantly researched, it delves deep into both: the country’s economic narrative that helped China sustain a near 10 percent growth rate for more than three decades and the political narrative that China is an increasingly fragile state that remains wrapped in what economists say is nothing but an incomplete transition from a totalitarian to a democratic market economy.
