This is a list of references on e-government in China. For a general list of references on China and the internet, I have another list.
This list of sources draws from the bibliography of my master’s thesis in East Asian regional studies at Harvard. It is by no means comprehensive, but I think it includes most of the best materials. I will try to update this from time to time, but please leave a comment or e-mail me at “mail //at// gwbstr //dot com//” if you think I’ve missed something.
