BRILL, 2016. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Citing the centrality of oil rentier states to oil politics--oil-producing countries whose economic and political survival heavily relies on oil resources--Qasem describes the ways in which oil independence has affected the internal and external security strategies of Saudi Arabia, the quintessential oil rentier state. Utilizing the political economy approach, the book theorizes the impact of oil relations on security strategies of Saudi Arabia as meeting future oil demands will not only challenge oil consumers but also oil producers. Seven chapters are: rentier theory and Saudi Arabia; neo-rentier theory; the pre-boom (1950-1970); the first boom (1970-1985); the bust (1985-2000); the second boom (2000-2012); conclusion.

Citing China's highly monopolized petroleum industry with several enterprises controlling exploration, mining, refining, wholesale, retail, and even imports and exports, Shen and Qian promote basic measures for oil industry reform: 1) cancel monopoly powers and some of the administrative powers of the oil monopoly enterprises; 2) establish an independent and neutral regulatory entity for the energy industry; 3) fully open the market for the oil and gas industry; 4) abolish price regulation. They note that the success of market-oriented reform will facilitate the prosperity of non-state-owned enterprises and create numerous job opportunities, which will more than compensate for the decrease in job opportunities in state-owned enterprises.

BRILL, 2017. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Early 20th-century Chinese writers transformed emotional expression in love fiction by translating and inter-textualizing foreign literary texts, says Liu. She shows that the foreign literary texts were written in alien languages at different times and places, but were eagerly sought after and appropriated by modern Chinese writers. She discusses pseudo-writing and creating channels for the expression of emotion, creating melodramatic emotional effects: Zhou Shoujuan's creative translations of short stories on love, transcultural lyricism in Su Manshu's fictional writing, and finding the right medium for emotion expression: inter-textualizing Western literary texts in Yu Dafu's early short stories.
