Land Bargains and Chinese Capitalism

Rithmire, Meg. Land bargains and Chinese capitalism : the politics of property rights under reform. Cambridge : Cambridge university press, 2015. ISBN : 978-1-1071-1730-3

Land Bargains and Chinese CapitalismLand reforms have been critical to the development of Chinese capitalism over the last several decades, yet land in China remains publicly owned. This book explores the political logic of reforms to land ownership and control, accounting for how land development and real estate have become synonymous with economic growth and prosperity in China. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and archival research, the book tracks land reforms and urban development at the national level and in three cities in a single Chinese region. The study reveals that the initial liberalization of land was reversed after China’s first contemporary real estate bubble in the early 1990s and that property rights arrangements at the local level varied widely according to different local strategies for economic prosperity and political stability. In particular, the author links fiscal relations and economic bases to property rights regimes, finding that more ‘open’ cities are subject to greater state control over land.
