Under Deng Xiaoping's leadership, China has embarked on a series of major legal reforms. This book takes a socialist perspective in examining the various forces shaping China's road to the rule of law. Criminal cases selected from ""Minzhu Yu Fazhi"" - a journal with a strong popular element - in 1979-89 are presented and analyzed, and the 4th June incident and the trial of the 1989 dissidents are used to assess the most recent legal developments in China.
