Reviews

"Chinese politics has become less crisis-driven in the past decade, but it has not become less complex. Changes in society and in the role of the Communist Party of China have put a divided and hesitant central leadership on the edge of major political reform. These scholars use their intimate familiarity with China's current realities to provide a comprehensive analysis of the trends shaping China's political choices and the dilemmas facing the leadership as it attempts to govern a changing China."

- Brantly Womack, University of Virginia
