Traditionally, political scientists and economists have seen China as a single entity and business people have seen China as a single market. This book challenges the notion of a centralised and unified China, and outlines how provinces are taking on new economic and political roles, forced upon them by decentralisation.It is the most thorough data on contemporary Chinese provinces available and will be of great interest to researchers and graduate students of politics, economics and business as well as Asian studies.

This volume challenges the notion of a centralized and unified China and introduces the concept of competitive advantage in the context of Chinese provincial studies. On the basis of seven provincial case studies, Hendrischke (Chinese and Indonesian studies, U. of New South Wales) charts different provincial paths of economic and political development and analyzes how individual provinces use their comparative and competitive advantage to formulate strategies in inter-provincial competition.
