Xiaoye Zhang, Asian Journal of Criminology Wang's book provided a great case study, which I found inspiring when discussing the relationship between guanxi network and the rule of law with colleagues, as it presents various manifestations in diverse areas of social science studies of contemporary China.

Chi Zhang, Europe-Asia Studies This book is compelling and informative in its opening of the 'black box' of guanxi networks in China ... a unique addition to the field of mafia research, one that has overcome the formidable challenge of data access.

Georgios A Antonopoulos, Theoretical Criminology The book, which is a compelling amalgam of theoretical robustness and meticulous empirical detail, manifests the author's unique insight in the phenomenon of the 'Chinese Mafia', his unrivalled knowledge, keen intelligence and confidence in almost every page. ... His work is a rich, erudite and stimulating discussion; a criminological gem, which will certainly find its way as an essential reading on Chinese organized crime and corruption.

Jianhua Xu, The China Journal Wang's book should be warmly welcomed, given the rise of a security state and the conservative turn of the Chinese authoritarian regime in recent years. The crackdown on human rights lawyers, the tightened media control, and declining academic freedom all make the current campaign against corruption, and by extension the Chinese mafia, far less effective in the long run, as the book convincingly argues.
