Book Description

Politics in China; 2nd Edition; (PDF) is an authoritative introduction to how the world’s most populous nation and rapidly rising global control is governed today. Written by leading China scholars; the ebook’s chapters provide accessible overviews of major periods in China’s modern political history from the mid-nineteenth century till present-day; key topics in modern Chinese politics; and developments in four significant areas located on China’s geographic border: Tibet; Xinjiang; Hong Kong; and Taiwan.

On October 1; 2009; the People’s Republic of China (PRC) observed the 60th anniversary of its founding. And what a tumultuous and eventful six decades it had been. During that time; under the control of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP); China was changed from one of the world’s underprivileged countries into the world’s fastest-growing major economy; and from a weak state hardly able to govern or protect its own territory to a growing power that is challenging the United States for global power.

In those same years; the PRC also experienced the most lethal famine in human history; caused largely by the inactions and actions of its political leaders. Not long after; there was a failure of government authority that pushed the country to the edge of (and in some places actually into) anarchy and civil war.

Today; China is; for the most part; prospering; peaceful; and proud. This is the China that was on for the world to see during the Beijing Olympics in 2008. The CCP maintains a firm hold on power through a combination of popular support largely based on its current record of promoting quick economic growth and harsh repression of political opposition. Yet; the country and the party face serious challenges on many faces; including a slowing economy; pervasive corruption; environmental desecration; extreme inequalities; and a rising tide of social protest.

P.S A newer edition is also available with us.
