China's Leaders: The New Generation

by

China's Leaders: The New Generation Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who will govern China at the dawn of the twenty-first century? What are the social backgrounds and career paths of the new generation of leaders? How do they differ from their predecessors in their responses to perplexing economic and socio-political challenges? Drawing upon a wealth of both quantitative and qualitative data on the so-called "fourth generation" of leaders — those who were young during the Cultural Revolution — Cheng Li sheds valuable light on these key questions. He shows that this group is more diversified than previous generations of CCP leaders in formative experiences, political solidarity, ideological conviction, and occupational background.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing upon a wealth of both quantitative and qualitative data on the so-called fourth generation of leaders (those who were young during the Cultural Revolution), Cheng Li (political science, Hamilton College) sheds light on the question of who will govern China at the dawn of the 21st century. He shows that this group is more diversified than previous generations in formative experiences, political solidarity, ideological conviction, and occupational background, and explores the contradictions between political leaders and non-elite peers. He concludes with the notion that this generation of leaders may have a better understanding of its peers' needs and concerns and therefore may make the regime more accountable to its people, thus contributing to democratic development.

Synopsis:

Who will govern China after Jiang Zemin? What path will its new leaders chart in the early years of the twenty-first century? Drawing upon a wealth of both quantitative and qualitative data on the so-called fourth generation of leaders_those who were young during the Cultural Revolution_Cheng Li shows that this group is more diversified than previous generations in formative experiences, political solidarity, ideological conviction, and occupational background. The author explores the contradictions between these emerging leaders and their non-elite peers who were barred from education during the Mao era and now often are unemployed and disenchanted. The book concludes with the intriguing notion that this generation of leaders may have a better understanding of its peersO concerns and therefore may make the regime more accountable to its people, thus contributing to, rather than opposing, democratic development.
