Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a new edition of his path-breaking analysis of political and social change in China since the crackdown in Tiananmen Square in 1989, Joseph Fewsmith traces developments since 2001. These include the continuing reforms during the final years of Jiang Zemin's premiership and Hu Jintao's succession in 2002. Here the author also considers social trends and how Chinese citizens are starting to have a significant influence on government policies. As Fewsmith - a highly regarded political scientist and a seasoned China-watcher - observes, China is a very different place today than it was eighteen years ago. In the interim, it has emerged from isolation to become one of the most significant players on the world stage. This book - more than any other - explains the forces that have shaped China since Tiananmen.

Book News Annotation:

Fewsmith (international relations and political science, Boston U.) traces changes in Chinese politics and government since the June 1989 student demonstrations that many in the West gleefully pronounced the death knell of Red China. Among his perspectives are the attack on Deng's reform program, elite politics and popular nationalism, and Hu Jintao takes over. An epilogue analyzes the 17th Party Congress in October 2007. The first edition appeared in 2001. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
