New in Paperback: China’s Cotton Industry by Björn Alpermann08.04.2015
"China’s Cotton Industry is a richly textured, rigorously argued, and revealing analysis of state capacity, relations among the various levels of the state, and state–society relations from the 1980s to the present. Björn Alpermann makes copious, meticulous use of the vast theoretical and substantive literatures as well as his own impressive field research to flesh out the detailed tapestry of the political economy of marketization in one of the last bastions of China’s state-controlled economy."
— Marc Blecher in The China Quarterly.
