Críticas: Because there is no more important issue to future generations than climate change and no more important country in the effort to control greenhouse gas emissions than China, Joanna Lewis's book is particularly timely and welcome. Thoroughly researched and well-written, this informative volume goes a long way toward helping us understand the critical role China plays in both the causes for and solutions to the global climate change challenge. -- Orville Schell, director, Center on U.S.-China Relations, Asia Society Green Innovation in China is a compelling exploration of how China is transforming itself into a clean energy powerhouse. By taking us deep into the competitive world of wind power--from research and development to the cutthroat global marketplace--Joanna Lewis provides fascinating insights into China's broader clean tech innovation strategy. This is a book that should be on the desk or nightstand of anyone who wants to understand where China's leaders are taking their country and how they plan to get there. -- Elizabeth Economy, C. V. Starr Senior Fellow and director of Asia studies, Council on Foreign Relations This book provides an excellent overview of China's green innovation system, relating China's energy technology innovations to the country's domestic policy interventions and international collaborations. China's green innovation process is very complicated. Without a doubt, this book will help readers within and outside of China better grasp the context and nature of the issue. The text also describes well the lessons other developing countries can draw from China's green innovation exercise. -- Zhang Xiliang, professor and executive director, Institute of Energy, Environment, and Economy, Tsinghua University Lewis's work is a lucid look at the development of a key green-tech sector, and the larger lessons it holds for China's innovative capacity. Asian Review of Books 1/25/2013 Essential reading for everyone interested in the Chinese wind energy industry, providing a compelling and well-researched overview, including the industry's history and prospects for its future. -- Johan Nordensvard International Affairs Vol 89, No 4 As important as it is timely... Required reading for anyone interested in China's energy or environmental politics. -- Phillip Stalley The China Quarterly Vol 214 In this timely volume, Joanna Lewis integrates insights and research from over a decade of work relating to the rise of China's wind market, the largest in the world. -- Edward A. Cunningham Review of Policy Research Vol 31, No 2
