About this book


Law and Justice in China's New Marketplace provides the first comprehensive multidisciplinary analysis of the jurisprudence and related law underlying the contemporary Chinese transition to the 'socialist market economy'. New 'pluralized jurisprudence' has moved beyond Marxist class analysis to consider a new balance of values relating to economic efficiency and social justice in the marketplace, and yet the interior debates and perspectives concerning these values are virtually unknown in the Western scholarly literature. By analysing the changing Chinese approach in law to the adjustment of social interests in the context of profound economic change , Law and Justice in China's New Marketplace provides a unique reference tool. It outlines the new vocabulary of market jurisprudence and law and examines new legal thinking on rights protection with reference to widely ranging and often hot internal debate over human rights, property law and procedural or judicial justice.
