Praise for The Rise of China: 'Li has accomplished something different and very important ... This is a book which explains much that seems a puzzle and challenges the received opinion of many analysts. It should be read by all concerned persons.' (Immanuel Wallerstein) This is a must read for anyone seeking to understand the workings of global capitalism. In a clear and concise fashion Minqi Li explains the importance of Chinese economic dynamics to contemporary global capitalist stability and why the growing class and ecological contradictions undermining Chinese capitalism likely means we are heading into a new period of sustained global crisis. The need for system change has never been clearer. (Martin Hart-Landsberg, Professor of Economics at Lewis and Clark College, Portland, Oregon) At the moment that the whole world is suddenly wondering about the unsustainability of the Chinese economy and beginning to recognise that China is increasingly at the centre of the crisis of our times, Minqi Li has produced a book that argues exactly that. Moreover, he does so with a breadth that goes beyond most economic analyses, encompassing the interconnected economic and ecological crises of our time. China and the Twenty-First-Century Crisis is an important, timely, and bound to be influential work. (John Bellamy Foster, Profesor of Sociology, University of Oregon, editor of Monthly Review, and coauthor (with Robert W. McChesney) of The Endless Crisis: How Monopoly-Finance Capital Produces Stagnation and Upheaval from the USA to China)Minqi Li teaches economics at University of Utah and has also taught political science at York University, Canada. He is author of The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World-Economy (Pluto Press, 2008). He turned from an advocate of free market principles into a Marxist and was a political prisoner in China between 1990 and 1992.
