Chinese village, socialist state by Edward Friedman( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The detailed portrait of social change in the North China plain depicts how the world of the Chinese peasant evolved during an era of war and revolution and how it in turn shaped the revolutionary process. The authors spent a decade interviewing villagers and rural officials, exploring archives, and investigating villagers with diverse resources and cultural, traditions, and they vividly describe both the promise and the human tragedy of China's rural revolution. Exploring the decades before and after the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949, they trace the growing economic desperation and cultural disintegration that led to the revolution, the reforms undertaken by the Communist leadership that initially brought economic gains and cultural healing, and the tensions that soon developed between party and peasantry. They show that the Communist antimarket and collectivist strategies which culminated in the imposed collectivization of 1955-56 and the disastrous Great Leap Forward of 1958-60, clashed with cherished peasant cultural norms and economic aspirations. Eventually the party's attack on peasant values and interests, the authors find, produced a rupture that threatened both developmental and socialist goals and destroyed the democratic potential of the revolution at its best. -- Provided by publisher

The politics of democratization : generalizing East Asian experiences by Edward Friedman( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This timely collection explores democratic transitions in East Asia, arguing against the standard wisdom that European or Christian value systems and socioeconomic forces are essential for democracy to succeed. Instead the contributors convincingly illustrate that political institutions and broad political coalitions, which can be built anywhere by skilled politicians, are keys to consolidating a democratic breakthrough. An exploration of the East Asian experience reveals truths about Western democratization that are usually obscured by popular Western mythologies. This partnership of U.S. and Asian scholars offers the first systematic effort to bring East Asia into the democratization debate in a way that compels one to rethink "the politics of democratization" everywhere. The book therefore is a crucial contribution for all those interested in the broader issues of transitions to democracy."--Jacket

25 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book contributors reconsider the conventional wisdom that argues that the comparative performance of China has been superior to that of India, bringing together new paradigms for evaluating the two countries in terms of economics, social policy, politics, and diplomacy. The essays show that if not outright wrong, conventional wisdom has proven to be overly simplified. The book looks forward to the potential obstacles to the modernization drives in the two countries, speculating on how the comparison will look decades from now."--Jacket
China's rise, Taiwan's dilemmas and international peace by Edward Friedman( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is at stake in the triangular relation between China, Taiwan and the United States is nothing less than war and peace in the twenty-first century. If the stereotypes and misconceptions emanating from the media are to be believed, then a war between China and Taiwan is inevitable. This book examines the issue while bringing the Taiwanese views on identity politics to the forefront of the discussion." "The book focuses on China's authoritarian rise and explains how this has created painful dilemmas for a separate and democratic Taiwan while also suggesting different paths that could yet defeat the looming forces of war and contribute to maintaining the peace."--Jacket

Regional cooperation and its enemies in northeast Asia : the impact of domestic forces by Edward Friedman( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Northeast Asia is a region of both extraordinary economic growth and dangerous tensions which could explode in war. This book examines how domestic politics in all the countries of the region - China, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, North Korea and South Korea and, of course, the USA - intensifies the forces of both mutually beneficial prosperity and also war-prone tensions. It goes on to provide policy suggestions for making the better prospects more likely and the worse outcomes less likely. The book, highlighting how domestic imperatives shape foreign policies, will be an important contribution to the literature on Northeast Asian regionalism and the prospects for its future development
