This book is the first attempt to focus on the long-term process of economic change in pre-Communist China. It examines the extent to which China had become a modern economy by 1950 and analyzes the origins of some of the "modern" features in the traditional economy. With maps, tables and bibliography to guide the student, this concise study will provide an invaluable introduction to crucial aspects of Chinese history.
