The Law of China:
Dancing with the Dragon in the 21st Century by Feng Xu, J.D., Ph.D. (ISBN 0-938609-93-9)
This book serves to bridge the gap between
the “law in texts” and the “law in action”. It seeks to construct a real, live
picture of the Chinese legal system through the carefully selected pieces taken
from the mosaic of the Chinese society. The book draws from real stories in
everyday Chinese life, cases with wide social responses, news and reports on
major legal reform measures, and debates on critical social issues with
concurrent interests in this country (government corruption, gang crimes, gay
marriage, etc.). The everyday life of the Chinese and China’s challenging social
issues as juxtaposed in the book will not only give readers an overview of
Chinese law, but also provide them with a dynamic cultural context to understand
how the law functions within and beyond the legal texts in China.
