Abstract

152 China Review International: Vol. 2, No. 1, Spring 1995 are the possible minimal and political conditions needed to establish the "rule of law" in China? Are the issues of "government of laws, and not men" and the "mediation of interests," or "balancing of interests" exclusively tied to the specific history of particular forms of capitalist development? Must die "rule of law" imply a singular conception of checks and balances such as the "separation of powers" by which to delimit arbitrary government? Is it possible in contemporary China to generate a new social perspective on the law without resort to the pitfalls of "wholesale Westernisation"? Can CCP mass-line theory make a positive contribution to the development of checks and balances under a Chinese "socialist rule of law"? (p. 38) Keith has laid die groundwork. We now know what the Chinese are saying. Next, we need to evaluate it, decide what to make of it, and respond accordingly. R. P. Peerenboom Freshfields Solicitors (Beijing) MM Ronald Knapp. Chinese Bridges. Images of Asia Series. Hong Kong: Oxford University Press, 1993. vi, 78 pp. Hardcover $15.95.
