This book examines the evolution of Chinese governmental governance and its long-lasting impact on Chinese economic development, firstly by examining the formation of Chinese style governance, the core contents of this governance and its vitality compared to other governance patterns in Chinese history.

Development Versus Stagnation

Contributing to the debate over why premodern China failed to undergo an industrial revolution, this volume examines the subject of technological development, particularly agricultural development, to evaluate whether China suffered all-round technological stagnation. Using the example of the nongshu, or agricultural book, Deng also examines the role of Chinese values, social structure, class structure and bureaucracy in the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge. An organic part of Chinese agriculture and thus of Chinese economic history, the nongshu and the author's analysis of the nongshu phenomenon lead to new insights into the long-term economic development of premodern China.

Understanding the Gender Gap

Women have entered the labor market in unprecedented numbers. Yet these critically needed workers still earn less than men and have fewer opportunities for advancement. This study traces the evolution of the female labor force in America, addressing the issue of gender distinction in the workplace and refuting the notion that women's employment advances were a response to social revolution rather than long-run economic progress. Employing innovative quantitative history methods and new data series on employment, earnings, work experience, discrimination, and hours of work, this study establishes that the present economic status of women evolved gradually over the last two centuries and that past conceptions of women workers persist.
