By Nicholas R. Lardy
University Press of America/New York: The Asia Society, 1987
57 pp.

A leading American specialist on the Chinese economy assesses the dramatic economic reforms in post-Mao China and their implications for U.S. policy in the region.

But he is doubtful that China will be able to continue its rapid growth of trade without a more far-reaching reform in industry. And he also believes it unlikely that China's rapidly growing trade with Taiwan, South Korea and the Soviet Union can be sustained without some progress in resolving political differences.
