About the Author

Yu Hong is an assistant professor in the School of Communication at USC Annenberg. She is the author of Labor, Class Formation, and China's Informationized Policy of Economic Development.


"A bold and wide-ranging overview of seven decades of media, telecommunications, and information sector developments in China. Professor Hong manages both to stay engaged with the minutiae of this complex story, but also to identify the critical trends and themes that animated its unfolding. This is no mean achievement, and marks out Professor Hong as a notable scholar of information technology studies as well as a perspicacious observer of China."--Journal of Information Policy

"This is one of the most enlightening pieces of writing on the evolution of the information and communications technology sector in China."--Chinese Journal of Communication

"Yu Hong's book Networking China: The Digital Transformation of the Chinese Economy is an important contribution to the increasing body of literature on Chinese digital media and communication. . . . The book is well written and exemplary in research."--China Quarterly
"Networking China: The Digital Transformation of the Chinese Economy provides a much needed critical assessment of China's engagement with ICTs, telecommunications and media. . . . The book represents the most well-articulated discussion of the imminent rise of techno-nationalism and economic development in China."--Asian Communication Research

"Hong shines a bright light on the high cost and precarious prospects of making telecoms, the internet, ICTs and media the center of a nation's economic development strategy. It's a must-read for all who want to understand China's embrace of digital capitalism and the political economy of communication therein."--Mass Communication and Society
