"China's Social Welfare is a solid and thorough presentation of governmental initiatives in the realm of social welfare, with chief emphasis on several critical aspects of welfare that have loomed large over the past few years. The key feature of the book is its up-to-date coverage of all pertinent regulations and its insight into the problems in executing them."
