Governing China : from revolution through reform by Kenneth Lieberthal( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this highly readable account by a renowned expert on Chinese politics, we enter China's real channels of power, known to all participants but invisible to most observers. In this shadow world behind the formal organizational charts, power runs vertically through gateways, or mouths (kous), that connect Beijing to the smallest local neighborhoods in this far-flung land. The mouths of power are guarded by the most powerful men in the nation. It is a world of organizations but no institutions, of constantly changing rules. With a focus on the period of Communist Party rule since 1949, Lieberthal shows how the ways and forms of power were precipitated out of the rush of historical events in twentieth-century China. He presents compelling accounts of major events from the Long March through the Cultural Revolution, to China's post-Tiananmen economic surge, and incisive analyses of their political meaning. Lieberthal also explores the key issues challenging China now - succession at the top, a destabilizing level of economic growth, a degraded environment, human rights, the impending takeover of Hong Kong, and relations with Taiwan

Each chapter focuses on a major aspect of the development of the Chinese Party-state, encompassing the changing relations among its constituent parts

A research guide to Central Party and government meetings in China, 1949-1975 by Kenneth Lieberthal( Book )

34 editions published between 1976 and 2018 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, like its predecessor in 1976, provides information on all top-level meetings convened by Chinese officials since 1949 for which there is concrete documentary evidence. In so doing, it seeks to provide a vehicle for capturing a part of China's elite decision making, for tracking the appearance of various issues on the agenda of the leaders, for documenting major decisions taken, and for gaining increased bibliographic control over a scattered and unsystematic literature." --from the Introduction

Sino-Soviet conflict in the 1970s : its evolution and implications for the strategic triangle by Kenneth Lieberthal( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes the evolution of Sino-Soviet relations since the Cultural Revolution and explains China's policies in terms of political struggles which racked Peking during the 1970s. Key questions are explored: What bilateral strategies have the Soviet Union and China adopted to deal with each other since 1969? How has the Moscow-Peking feud affected dealings with other states? How have Sino-Soviet relations intertwined with domestic politics in China? What changes in relations are likely in coming years? What are the implications of these factors for U.S. policy toward Sino-Soviet affairs? The analysis concludes that American interests are best served by a Sino-Soviet relationship poised between rapprochement and war. The author argues that the dynamics of the relationship will very likely produce such an outcome. As well, the United States should pursue bilateral relationships with Moscow and Peking so as to maximize American interests without trying to affect their interactions with each other

Strategies of conflict in China during 1975-1976 by Kenneth Lieberthal( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pamphlet reviews political conflict in Peking from spring 1975 through spring 1976. During this period three political groups existed in The People's Republic of China: radicals (populists), moderates (Western-style modernizers), and the military (Chinese equivalent of the Pentagon). Most conflict traditionally occurred between radicals and moderates. The radicals controlled propaganda and educational spheres, whereas the moderates controlled executive Party positions and government outside the propaganda sphere. From May 1975 to January 1976, the two groups maneuvered for political advantage because Chou En-lai was dying. Moderates tried to put their people into important posts and appealed to potential allies through substantive programs. Radicals used the media to hold their ground and raise issues over which they planned to topple Chou En-lai's followers. From mid-January 1976 to April 4, 1976, after Hua Kuo-feng became acting premier, the two groups vied for political favor. Radicals tried to create in the media a political whirlwind to eliminate unwanted programs. Moderates used less visible resources within the bureaucracy to keep the radicals' campaign under control. The military maintained a low profile. From April 5 through May 1976, similar political contests went on, with the ailing Mao Tse-tung favoring both sides at different times. The ultimate balance to be struck in Chinese politics following Mao's death remained unclear as of June 1976. (Author/AV)
