Professor Kennedy’s just-published book, The Business of Lobbying in China (Harvard Univ. Press, February 2005), documents the growing influence of domestic and foreign businesses on national economic policy in China, and also shows that although companies operate in a common political system, economic circumstances shape the nature and outcome of lobbying.
Scott Kennedy (Ph.D., George Washington University, 2002) is an assistant professor in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Political Science. During the first half of 2005 he is a visiting professor at UC-San Diego’s Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies. Kennedy also recently edited China Cross Talk: The American Debate over China Policy since Normalization, A Reader (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003), an anthology of op-eds, congressional testimony, speeches and editorial cartoons that present the most memorable scenes from the debate of the past quarter century.
