Abstract

In Social Protection under Authoritarianism: Health Politics and Policy in China, Xian Huang explores patterns of welfare under an authoritarian system, examining the rapid growth in health insurance in China in the first decade of the twenty-first century. This valuable book throws light on how authoritarian states use social protection to further economic development and regime stability, finds Mel Cousins, and will form a sound basis for future studies in this important policy area. Social Protection under Authoritarianism: Health Politics and Policy in China. Xian Huang. Oxford University Press. 2020.
