Politics of East Asian development, especially the People's Republic of China and Taiwan

Ed Winckler studies political and policy development in the PRC, particularly political reform. Relatedly, he is currently working with a PRC professor to update Chinese intellectuals' understanding of how American politics now actually works. Winckler is also pursuing a broader historical comparison of political-institutional development in China and the West. He also continues work on PRC social policy, expanding from population toward health and education. His most recent books are Governing China's Population (with Susan Greenhalgh, Stanford, 2005) and Transition from communism in China (edited, Lynne Reinner, 1999).
