Tb have added some of their writings would have enhanced the value of fhe book. AnoAier drawback to this work is Aiat Aie discussion of each issue is by someone from only one of Aie two camps. This leaves Aie reader wondering what the other side of the coin is on each issue. The editors' long introduction, together with Aie four appendixes, provides Aie Western audience with a much-needed background. These contain a wealth of data, difficult to find elsewhere in English publications. The statistical information, however, seems to end with 1989, and more important recent information is left out. The new data concerning the height of die dam, for instance, is not included. Some of the editors' analysis is rather elementary (e.g., their conclusions on p. 36). Occasionally translations seem awry (e.g., the name of an American economist, G. R. Paschal, was transliterated into "Pan Sui" on p. 43).
