This chapter outlines the book's analytical framework, and sets the stage for the empirical work that follows. It begins with a discussion of the theoretical literature on industrial policy in general, and on work specific to China. It puts the theories in a comparative context, and considers the ways nations such as Japan and South Korea used industrial policy with some success. It considers both positive and negative features of government economic intervention. It also argues that a focus on key economic sectors can shed useful empirical light on the how a government can successfully develop important industries such as telecommunications. It outlines the text's thesis that the rapid growth of telephones and the Internet in China may be attributed to successful government industrial policies.

Keywords:   administrative guidance, case studies, South Korea, developmental state, development theories, industrial policy, Japan, predatory state, productivity
