520 |a An authoritative introduction to how the world's most populous nation and rapidly rising global power is governed today. Written by leading China scholars, each chapter offers an accessible overview of a key topic in Chinese politics. The opening section provides readers with a firm grounding in China's modern political history, covering the decline and fall of the last imperial dynasty and the rise to power of the Chinese Community Party (CCP), and the radicalism of the era of Mao Zedong (1949-76), and dramatic economic reforms under firm communist rule carried out by Deng Xiaoping and his successors (1976 to the present). The next section sets the framework of politics in the People's Republic of china (PRC) with chapters on the ideology of the CCP, the structure and dynamics of the political system, the role of law and legal reform, and the policies behind the country's spectacular economic transformation. The book then shifts to a discussion of a series of major political issues in China today: reform and resistance in the countryside; changes and challenges in the cities; the arts and culture; the environment; public health; population policy; and a new chapter on the internet and politics. The final chapters of the book covers politics in four important areas located on China's geographic periphery: Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
