Yuhui Li is professor of sociology at Rowan University.
Chinese leaders in Beijing and Urumchi should read Li Yuhui's study of the Xinjiang Partnership Assistance Program to understand why their reboot of the Qing dynasty policy requiring richer eastern provinces to directly subsidize Xinjiang has not achieved its social and political goals, despite its huge price-tag. Li's clear-eyed, well-documented critique of China's interventionist economic aid in Xinjiang provides a concrete case-study of Development with Chinese characteristics, one of great interest now not only to China scholars, but to observers of China's Belt and Road Initiative across Eurasia and students of global development policy in general. -- James A.
