296 China Review International: Vol. 4, No. 1, Spring 1997 a more sophisticated analytical framework, perhaps best explains the "curious logic" (p. 11) China has been operating on--albeit since long before the Tiananmen incident. Ming-Bao Yue University of Hawai'i at Mânoa Ming-Boo Yue is an assistant professor ofChinese literature specializing in twentiethcentury Chinese literature and culture. Zhang Boshu. Marxism and Human Sociobiology: The Perspective ofEconomic Reforms in China. State University of New York Press, 1994. xiv, 184 pp. Hardcover $14.95, isbn 0-7914-2003-5. The title of this book by Professor Zhang of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (Beijing) contains all the catchwords that might sharpen my curiosity when I first encountered it. In the end, I was disappointed because my anticipation that this book will contribute to a better understanding of the process, content, and consequences of the post-1978 economic reform in the People's Republic of China was not met. The core focus of this book is "the nature of man"; it is a philosophical critique of the weakness of Marx's understanding of human nature in his work on the evolutionary transformation from capitalism to socialism.
