Chapter 1. Introduction

Abstract
Although economic theorists still hold different views on the definition of industrialization so far, industrialization in its general sense refers to the economic development process in which the economic structure of a country or a region transforms from one dominated by agriculture to one dominated by industry.

Chapter 2. China’s Industrialization Process: An Overview

Abstract
China’s “bud of capitalism” and “modern factor” can be traced back to as early as the 16th century. During the 1860s, modern industry emerged as compared with traditional handicraft industry along with such economic propositions as “adopting western systems”, “manufacturing western articles” and “revitalizing machine manufacturing” put forward by those early westernization theorists.

Chapter 4. Key Features of China’s Industrialization

Abstract
If surveyed from the general history of world industrialization, what kind of characteristics does China’s industrialization process have? To sum up, we may say that China’s industrialization process since the reform and opening up is a rapid industrialization process for a major country with a population of 1.3 billion, and a great modernization process unprecedented in human history.

Chapter 5. Outlook for China’s Industrialization

Abstract
With a glorious past, will China’s industrialization surely hold a bright prospect? In line with the speed of industrialization during the “10th Five-Year Plan” period, we predicted that China will have basically realized industrialization around 2020 if it can maintain the speed of industrialization of the “10th Five-Year Plan” period. However, in view of a gradual slowdown in its industrialization process, we predict that China will probably realize industrialization during 2025–2030 if it can largely maintain the current growth momentum.
