Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Factionalism is widely understood to be a distinguishing characteristic of Chinese politics. In this book, Jing Huang examines the role of factionalism in leadership relations and policy making. His detailed knowledge of intra-Party politics offers a new understanding of still-disputed struggles behind the high walls of leadership in Zhongnanhai. Critiqueing the predominant theories on leadership and decisionmaking, he explains that it is not power struggles that give rise to factionalism, but rather the existence of "factionalism that turns power into an overriding goal in CCP politics."

Book News Annotation:

Although factionalism has widely been recognized as a critical part of Chinese Communist Party politics, it has, more often than not, been explained as simply an expression of power grabbing. Huang (political science, Utah State U.) argues that it is a much more complicated phenomenon. Tracing the roots of factionalism to the various power bases controlled by guerilla leaders during the communist revolution, he explores how factionalism was affected by various policy agendas and vice versa. He also explains such events as the Cultural Revolution and Deng Xiaoping's rise to power as expressions of factional politics. Factionalism plays such a powerful part of Chinese politics, he contends, because of the highly personalized relationship between political contenders and their followers, a barely institutionalized political process, and uncertain rules of decision making.
