Going against the tide of optimism that characterizes most books on doing business in China, this study reveals an unstable, disorganized and capricious legal system that is far from trustworthy. The author, a practitioner in Shanghai, contends that all foreign investment in China will remain totally at risk until a broad range of enormous administrative lacunae are filled with responsible, reliable legal norms. These gaps in the system - all cearly analyzed and measured here for the reader - include the lack of clear delineation between legal and policy norms, the breadth of discretion accorded to bodies charged with legal interpretation and implementation, the limited scope of judicial review, and resulting problems of legislative inconsistency and haphazard legal enforcement.
