Hong Kong University Press in "China Review 1996" , 1996
In the area of economics, Jean OI's focus on loval self government links the political dilemmas of the previous section with the concrete economic problems of the locality in contemporary China. WIth her customary insight and skilful use of field reserach, Oi paints a complex picture of local development.

Jean Oi, David S G Goodman, Beverley Hooper
Longman Cheshire in "China Quiet Revolution: New Interactions Bewtween State and Society" , 1994
In this volume of concise and informative essays, leading specialists examine the nature, impact and prospects of China's post-1978 party±market symbiosis. Criticizing the collapse thesis derived from Eastern European conditions, it argues that economic liberalization has created new forms of interdependency between the state and market in China. The corollary is that party cadres have developed a new and useful role as facilitators of market transactions.

Income inequalities between urban and rural areas remain high in China, but the gap has begun to narrow. Peasant incomes have increased dramatically since the post-Mao reforms. Rural areas have new power, but this is a consequence not a cause of the reforms. The improvement in rural conditions reflects a change in the central state's development strategy and ideology, and the local response to incentives embedded in China's reforms.
Jean C. Oi, Myron L. Cohen
ME Sharpe in "Guide to Asian Case Studies in the Social Sciences" , 1992
The case study approach is always a refreshing antidote to the frequently superficial approach of a narrative textbook. This is particularly the case in an area as complex as the study of Asia. In an increasingly interdisciplinary world, Asia: Case Studies in the Social Sciences could be an invaluable supplement to a teacher well versed in the general principles but needing the depth and perspective of specialized knowledge of particular topics. I recommend this approach for both college instructors and for advanced study at the pre-collegiate level.

In the 1980s fiscal reform in China provided localities with strong incentives and a heightened capacity to pursue industrial growth. As a result, local governments have responded vigorously to economic reform, managing rural collective-owned enterprises as diversified corporations, with local officials performing the role of a board of directors.

'Local corporatism' has been identified as a major factor in the rapid growth of the Chinese economy. The institutional environment, ownership, political and social factors operate along with economic factors in explaining local cor poratism and differences in the degree of corporatism of collective and private enterprises with local governments. The differences lead to the distinction between collective and private enterprises in terms of organizational character istics. This is confirmed by data from 132 rural enterprises in China.
