【主要内容】The meteoric rise of the Chinese economy in the past four decades has attracted enormous attention from and raises profound questions for social science researchers. However, the literature has so far failed to offer an analytical framework to explain the major stylized facts of China’s growth in transition. Building on the literature on new institutional economics, critical historical juncture and resource curse, I propose an integrated framework to reinterpret the Chinese development models in different periods since the foundation of the People’s Republic. I argue that the initial small institutional differences between China and the Former Soviet Union, interacted with the 1972 critical juncture, facilitated China’s gradualist and relatively smooth market-oriented reform and at the same time ruined the chance for the adoption of a gradualist approach in Russia’s market transition. I will explain why after mid-1990s China started an investment-driven and export -oriented growth model that bears the birthmarks of a typical East Asian developmental state, the country’s performance in income disparity, environmental protection, social stability and land development has been very different. Even though the differences in initial conditions such as labor and natural resource endowment between China and other East Asian developmental state are relatively small, the political and economic structure of China shaped by the second critical juncture of the late 1980s has made China’s comprehensive economic reform toward a full-fledged market economy stalled in the middle and thus China’s developmental state model began to diverge from the typical East Asian model since mid-1990s.  I conclude by proposing to reset the research agenda in social sciences on plan economy, economic transition as well as developmental state under a new theoretical framework that takes into account the roles of critical junctures interacting small initial differences in shaping the institutional divergence and the different performance outcomes across countries.
