Summary
This overview of Chinese politics, economy, and society by a leading international scholar offers a deeply informed assessment of China's last decade its debates and political infighting, its rising and assertive international profile, and the forceful initiatives taken by Xi Jinping, who is proving to be China's strongest leader since Mao and Deng. Francois Godement moves from the inner workings of the Party elite to the economic policies that have made China the world's factory while fueling growing inequality. He explains the recent turn of China's foreign policy to assertiveness, showing its roots in relations, which have fluctuated wildly since the start of the reform era in 1978. Providing rare and vivid insights into the trenches of Chinese politics, the book illuminates dramatic corruption cases, behind the scenes decision making processes, and a political and intellectual establishment torn between political reform and nationalism. It will be of interest not only to academics and students but also to general readers interested in China's political scene beyond the headlines
