Abstract

188 China Review International: Vol. 2, No. 1, Spring 1995 assessing the general success of making age-based retirement a norm for cadres, the author attributes the manipulation of a conflict of interest between the generations as a key mechanism driving the process. In other words, the policy makers in Beijing took full advantage of the self-interest of the younger cadres in seeking their support for such a state policy. In view of the severe limitations on conducting interviews and surveys in China, the author carefully explains her survey and interview methods in her appendix. In particular, she defends the use of nonprobability samples in testing relationships between variables. While not refuting her methodology or her main research findings, one cannot but wish the surveys and interviews had been more regionally balanced. Larry N.
