Liu Renwen (ed.), Evaluation of Criminal Law Amendments and Scientification of Criminal Law Legislation, Beijing: Social Sciences Academic Press, 2018.
This book is mainly based on the papers submitted to the Seminar in Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Promulgation of the 1997 Criminal Law: the Assessment of the Previous Amendments to the Chinese Criminal Law and Scientific Criminal Legislation”, held in Beijing on October 14-15, 2017.
