China internet references

This is a list of references on the internet in China. I also have a special list for China and e-government.

This list of sources draws several papers I have written in grad school beginning in 2008. 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 important
