Presenting a systematic political economy model in analyzing Beijings decision-making mechanisms, the book argues that Chinas WTO policy making is a state-led, leadership driven, and top-down process. Feng explores how Chinas determined political elite partly bypassed and partly restructured a largely reluctant and resistant bureaucracy, under constant pressure from an increasingly globalized international system.By addressing Chinas accession to the WTO from a political analysis perspective, the book provides a theoretically informed and intriguing examination of Chinas foreign economic policy making regime. The book highlights contemporary debates relating to state and institutionalist theory and provides new and useful insights into a significant development of this century.
