Grassroots political reform in contemporary China( )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Observers often note the glaring contrast between China's economic progress and its stalled political reforms. This volume, written by experienced scholars, explores a range of grassroots efforts--initiated by the state and society alike--to restrain corrupt behavior and enhance the accountability of local authorities. While the authors offer varying views on the larger significance of these developments, their case studies point to a more dynamic Chinese political system than is often acknowledged

27 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In modern China, literature has been regarded as a vehicle of political and idea logical dissent, a concept that has persisted under communism.

Chinese intellectuals between state and market by Merle Goldman( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume describes the intellectual world that developed in China in the last decade of the twentieth century. How, as China's economy changed from a centrally planned to a market one, and as China opened up to the outside world and was influenced by the outside world, Chinese intellectual activity became more wide-ranging, more independent, more professionalized and more commercially oriented than ever before. The future impact of this activity on Chinese civil society is discussed in the last chapter

Sowing the seeds of democracy in China : political reform in the Deng Xiaoping era by Merle Goldman( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West's leading authority on the role of intellectuals in contemporary China presents a percipient account of the efforts at political reform in the Deng Xiaoping era. Merle Goldman describes a group of highly placed intellectuals who, with the patronage of Deng Xiaoping's designated successors Hu Yaobang and then Zhao Ziyang, attempted to reshape both China's Marxist-Leninist ideology and its political system. When they found their efforts had produced negligible results, they tried to introduce new institutions such as a free press, a legislature with real power, the rule of law, and truly competitive elections. Through an exhaustive search of the current literature and in-depth interviews, Goldman shows that the writings and activities of the democratic elite and its supporters through the 198Os provided the intellectual context for the pro-democracy demonstrations in Tiananmen Square. The Party's crackdown on June 4, 1989, was directed as much against this elite as against the student and worker demonstrators. Yet despite the efforts of the ruling elders, the intellectuals have introduced ideas and advocated actions that have gradually limited the all-encompassing power of China's party-state and helped to make possible the beginnings of democracy. Steady media attention has been devoted to China's economic reforms, yet little notice has been paid to efforts toward political change. Sowing the Seeds of Democracy in China introduces the reader to the agents of such a change and chronicles the growing pains of China's loyal opposition
From comrade to citizen : the struggle for political rights in China by Merle Goldman( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's move to the market and opening to the outside world have loosened party controls over everyday life and led to the emergence of ideological diversity. Starting in the 1980s, multicandidate elections for local officials were held and term limits were introduced for Communist Party leaders. Establishment intellectuals who have broken away from party patronage have openly criticized government policies. Those intellectuals outside the party structures, because of their participation in the Cultural Revolution or the 1989 Tiananmen Square demonstrations, have organized petitions, published independent critiques, formed independent groups, and even called for a new political system." "Despite the party's repeated attempts to suppress these efforts, awareness about political rights has been spreading among the general population. Goldman emphasizes that these changes do not guarantee movement toward democracy, but she sees them as significant and genuine advances in the assertion of political rights in China."--Jacket

An intellectual history of modern China( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Intellectual History of Modern China covers modern China's intellectual development from the nineteenth to the end of the twentieth century. Merle Goldman and Leo Ou-fan Lee introduce and set the contemporary, scholarly context for this collection of essays, drawn from the later volumes (Volumes 12-15) of The Cambridge History of China. The chapters trace the transformation of Confucian ideas, the introduction of Western views, and the resulting, uniquely Chinese view of the world. By linking key intellectual developments and figures to emerging political movements, they explain the profound impact of changing ideas and values on Chinese politics and revolution. Merle Goldman brings the history up to date with a new, concluding chapter on the Deng Xiaoping era and China's intellectual scene at the end of the twentieth century
