Wealth and power : China's long march to the twenty-first century by Orville Schell( Book )

"Through a series of ... portraits of iconic modern Chinese leaders and thinkers, two of today's foremost specialists on China provide a panoramic narrative of this country's rise to preeminence that is at once analytical and personal.

"The China Reader: The Reform Era is a compilation by two astute China watchers of the most important documents, articles, and statements on China from 1972 to the present. Here are the voices of the experts, from Chinese analyses of the fall of Soviet Communism to Western exposes of an ecological crisis that threatous global weather patterns into the next millennium. Here, too, are the artifacts of an era, from regulations to control Chinese cyber-space to a Party member's Orwellian justification of the military crackdown in Tiananmen Square. The China Reader is a guide to understanding a nation in the throes of change - a historic moment with profound implications for policy makers and markets from the Pacific Rim to Wall Street."--BOOK JACKET

Mandate of heaven : the legacy of Tiananmen Square and the next generation of China's leaders by Orville Schell( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This astonishing new book by Orville Schell, for thirty years America's foremost chronicler of contemporary China, offers a unique look at the China of the mid-'90s and the generation that stands poised to inherit the "mandate of heaven," the right to govern the world's largest nation." "China's current leaders - already in their eighties and nineties - will soon be leaving the country's political scene. Their departure raises the ultimate question: Who will assume power? The generation that was the natural heir was decimated in the chaos of the Cultural Revolution during the 1960s and '70s. Thus, with the end of the Deng era, it is left to a new generation, with a drastically different set of experiences and priorities, to take over." "The crackdown that followed the democracy protest in Tiananmen Square in 1989 seemed to foretell doom to international investment and any possibility of political freedom, but Deng Xiaoping, who had already begun instituting bold capitalist-style economic reforms in the 1980s, maneuvered China back onto the path of reform, and by 1992 China had become the fastest growing economy in the world. Yet China remains a place where even peaceful expression of political views is punishable by imprisonment." "Traveling back to China many times since 1989, Schell takes readers on a series of trips inside the latter-day People's Republic to meet the people who acted out the drama of the Square and who are now playing the leading roles in China's high-speed rush into the future. With the intimacy of an old friend, Schell introduces us to these ordinary and extraordinary characters, not necessarily the children of the elite, as some might expect, but students, workers, peasants, entrepreneurs, teachers, soldiers, intellectuals, labor leaders, and pop stars."
