Bureaucracy, economy, and leadership in China : the institutional origins of the great leap forward by David M Bachman( Book )

19 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book David Bachman examines the origins of the Great Leap Forward (GLF), a programme of economic reform that must be considered one of the great tragedies of Communist China, estimated to have caused the death of between 14 and 28 million Chinese. While standard accounts interpret the GLF as chiefly the brainchild of Mao Zedong and as a radical rejection of a set of more moderate reform proposals put forward in the period 1956 to 1957, Bachman proposes a provocative reinterpretation of the origins of the GLF that stresses the role of the bureaucracy. Using a neo-institutionalist approach to analyse economic policy-making leading up to the GLF, he argues that the GLF must be seen as the produce of an institutional process of policy-making. This book offers a reinterpretation of one of the most important episodes in the history of the People's Republic as well as a framework with which to analyse the role of institutions more generally in the political economy of the PRC

Winning friends and influencing people with guns : understanding the growth of China's military diplomacy by Steven J Smith( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in roughly 2002, China's once reclusive military commenced upon a steadily expanding program of military diplomacy activity that now includes dozens of annual engagements with scores of states involving thousands of personnel. This dissertation seeks to understand the factors that have contributed to the remarkable rise in Chinese military diplomacy activity during the decade from 2002 to 2012. More specifically, the dissertation focuses on examining two of the common, yet understudied, assertions in the literature on Chinese military diplomacy. The first assertion is that the growth of China's military diplomacy is due to China's desire to protect its growing international economic interests. The second assertion is that China uses its military diplomacy activities to promulgate positive images of the state to its domestic and international audiences, using these images to promote China's international status. This dissertation examines these two assertions by formulating complete arguments for each, beginning with the relevant theoretical foundations and then linking these theories to the empirical patterns of behavior manifest by two representative case studies: the People Liberation Army's combined exercises with other states and its humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR) engagements. Examination of the first assertion regarding China's international economic interests as a driver of China's expanding military diplomacy reveals significant correlations between China's major trading partners, the global transportation routes upon which China depends for its commercial prosperity, and the states China chooses to engage in combined exercises and HA/DR operations. Examination of the second assertion regarding the use of military diplomacy as a means to promote positive images of the state likewise reveals patterns of activity that support the hypothesis. The economic and political attributes of the states China chooses to engage, Beijing's characterization of those engagements, and the sizes of those engagements are calculated to satisfy the expectations of China's domestic audiences for manifestations of China's improving international status while also acknowledging international wariness regarding China's increasing international security presence. To be sure, China's expanding military diplomacy activity is motivated by multiple factors, each of which deserves further study. However, this dissertation makes a significant contribution to our understanding of how China's economic interests and image building goals relate to China's growing international security presence. Given the tensions inherent in China's rise, understanding these factors is of value to policymakers in the United States and elsewhere who must understand how and why China's international military activity is changing as they consider strategic responses

Transplanting nationalism : how the Chinese government provokes nationalistic emotions where nationalism foundation does not exist by Guanjie Niu( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During international disputes that involve China, if there is no existing foundation for nationalism, such as historical grievances and former conflicts between the disputing nations, how does the Chinese government manage to evoke a wide-range of nationalistic sentiments in Chinese society in a very short time? To answer this question, I conducted a content analysis based on the Philippines v. China (or the South China Sea Arbitration case) by using articles that were published in the People's Daily. I argue that the Chinese government attempts to transplant existing nationalistic emotions from other nationalism foundations and symbols, which are familiar with Chinese people, to the "unblemished" target country to create an instant nationalistic fever among the Chinese public if there's no nationalistic foundation between these two countries
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the People's Republic of China : security function growth is occurring along anti-terrorism lines by Dan Taninecz Miller( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I will argue that the SCO is not failing as security organization (as many have claimed) but is in fact pivoting towards security and intelligence functions aimed at repressing subversive elements and domestic threats under the auspices of the Chinese three evils doctrine of separatism, extremism and terrorism. This paper identifies significant developments within the SCO and analyzes their security, intelligence and human rights implications. The SCO's normative documents show extensive security designs, and recent diplomatic information and quantitative media analysis data suggest these goals are bearing fruit. Realities on the ground over the SCO's lifespan indicate collective security cooperation that aligns with self-described goals for the organization as well as major players like the PRC. I argue that such development in security functionality is the result of shared domestic insecurity across SCO member-state territory and security functions are increasingly emphasized by Beijing

Fangsheng landscape : the human-animal relationship in Nanjing by Yalin WEI( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is an investigation of both human-animal relationship and a Buddhist ritual practice in modern China. Fangsheng, the Buddhist animal release, is very popular among lay Buddhists in Nanjing and other cities in China. In this thesis, I argue that the local history, environment, Internet social media, the pollution issues, and the ritual itself constitute the “landscape” for fangsheng. Within the landscape, I claim that the “pollution” should be understood as “matter out of place.” The standard of “pollution” among Buddhists does not refer to ecological knowledge, but moral orders from Buddhism. The fangsheng landscape is also the moral landscape

Plagiarism in Chinese popular fiction : tolerated copyright infringement in a money-making industry by Wenxu Wang( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is built upon a research project aimed at providing interesting insights into plagiarism in the field of popular Chinese fiction, which has been a controversial issue on the Internet in China for the past decade. The questions to be explored in this research are how the phenomenon of plagiarism among Chinese fiction writers has come into being and what distinguishes this type of plagiarism from relatively well studied academic plagiarism in China. In order to find answers to the research questions, interviews specially designed for this project and online discussions as well as existing literature on the topic are employed. As for the arguments of the thesis, they are basically shaped by anything useful gained from qualitative interviews and site observations. It is found that plagiarists in the field of Chinese popular fiction are largely driven by fame and fortune internally and externally, which means that their pursuit of nothing but personal gain is encouraged by realities in Chinese society such as prioritizing financial interests and lagging behind in legislation and law enforcement. Compared with academic plagiarism, it is harder to identify plagiarism in the field of Chinese fiction. Apart from that, the treatment of writers who commit plagiarism is also much more lenient even though the two types of plagiarism are essentially the same
