Chinese politics in the Hu Jintao era : new leaders, new challenges by Willy Wo-Lap Lam( )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 1,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on hundreds of interviews with top Chinese officials, parliamentarians, scholars, and businessmen, Willy Lam, a renowned journalist and writer on Chinese affairs, presents a first-hand, multi-dimensional account of twenty-first century China and the impact of fourth generation leaders, including President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao. Lam goes behind the glitzy facade of nouveau-riche Beijing and Shanghai to examine how the Hu leadership has tried to extend the Communist Party's "mandate of heaven" by tackling an array of daunting problems: the weakening legitimacy of the Party's leadership; restive peasants; angry workers; political stagnation over the lack of reform; foreign relations difficulties; unreliable energy supplies; resurgent nationalism; and the increasingly dubious "Chinese model" of development. The author assesses possible contributions that the new classes of private businessmen, professionals, and intellectuals--as well as new ideas such as nationalism, globalization, and federalism--will make to economic prosperity and political liberalization. The book also includes a chapter on foreign policy, which contains an insightful account of Beijing's evolving and sometimes difficult relations with the United States, Europe, Japan, and other major countries and blocs, as well as the role of the People's Liberation Army. -- Publisher's Description
China after Deng Xiaoping : the power struggle in Beijing since Tiananmen by Willy Wo-Lap Lam( Book )

This book gives bold and thought-provoking answers to the question "What will happen after Deng Xiaoping's death?" by analysing major political and economic trends in China since the June 4, 1989 crackdown. The intriguing career of patriarch Deng after the Tiananmen Square massacre - and his place in history - is assessed with the help of previously unpublished internal documents and hundreds of interviews with key players. The lively story-telling and incisive judgements are buttressed by generous quotations from the speeches and writings of the politicians who will shape China's future

5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report details the major generational changes that will take place in the party-and-state leadership at the 18th Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Congress set for October 2012. While Fifth Generation leaders like Vice-President Xi Jinping remain poised to accede to the position of general secretary and state president, and First Vice-Premier Li Keqiang will succeed Wen Jiabao as premier, General Secretary and President Hu Jintao has been personally overseeing the transition of power to-Fifth- and-Sixth-Generation cadres, a reference to officials born respectively in the 1950s and 1960s. With this report, JTF examines elite Chinese politics, especially factional intrigue and the grooming of China's next leadership corps, in the run-up to and after the 18th Party Congress

China's quasi-superpower diplomacy : prospects and pitfalls by Willy Wo-Lap Lam( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year 2009 will go down in history as a watershed for the epochal expansion of China's global influence. With its economy tipped to grow at 8 percent despite the world financial crisis, the People's Republic of China (PRC) is widely regarded as a prime locomotive for economic recovery worldwide. The People's Liberation Army (PLA) is building nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers, and the country's first astronaut is expected to set foot on the moon before 2015. Taking advantage of the damage that the financial crisis has dealt the American laissez-faire system, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is also gunning for a novel international financial architecture, or one that is not dominated by the United States. This paper will look at China's much-enhanced projection of hard and soft power, particularly ways in which Beijing is waging quasi-superpower diplomacy to bolster the country's pre-eminence in the new world order. The diplomatic and geopolitical implications of China's precipitous rise will be thoroughly appraised
Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Communist Party by Willy Wo-Lap Lam( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whilst the Chinese Communist Party is one of the most powerful political institutions in the world, it is also one of the least understood, due to the party's secrecy and tight control over the archives, the press and the Internet. Having governed the People's Republic of China for nearly 70 years though, much interest remains into how this quintessentially Leninist party governs one-fifth of the world and runs the world's second-largest economy. The Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Communist Party gives a comprehensive and multi-faceted picture of the party's traditions and values - as well as its efforts to stay relevant in the twenty-first century. It uses a wealth of contemporary data and qualitative analysis to explore the intriguing relationship between the party on the one hand, and the government, the legal and judicial establishment and the armed forces, on the other. Tracing the influence of Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin, as well as Mao Zedong, on contemporary leaders ranging from Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin to Hu Jintao and Xi Jinping, the sections cover:the party's history and traditions;how the party works and seeks to remain relevant;major policy arenas;the CCP in the twenty-first century. The Routledge Handbook of the Chinese Communist Party will be of interest to students and scholars of Chinese Politics, Asian Politics, Political Parties and International Relations."--Provided by publisher
La Chine aujourd'hui dynamiques domestiques et internationales by Paul André( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trente ans après le lancement de la politique de réformes et d'ouverture, le visage de la Chine a été profondément modifié. Cet ouvrage cherche à comprendre quelles ont été les évolutions structurelles du régime chinois tant sur le plan domestique qu'international. De quelle manière la politique chinoise a-t-elle évolué et quelle relation peut-on établir entre l'ouverture de la Chine au monde et sa politique intérieure)? À travers les contributions inédites de chercheurs français, chinois et hongkongais, ce livre tente de présenter les évolutions structurelles du régime. La question du modèle de développement est également abordée. À bien des égards les choix retenus en Chine furent à la fois innovants et propres au cas chinois. Fiscalité, développement durable, accueil des capitaux étrangers, sur bien des points la Chine présente des solutions singulières. Car aujourd'hui, forte de son nouveau poids économique, la Chine est amenée à repenser son rôle sur la scène internationale. Elle fonde sa nouvelle puissance sur des outils innovants (clean tech, économie, influence culturelle). La dynamique à l'œuvre en Chine pose donc la question du développement dans la mondialisation mais aussi des équilibres internationaux à venir. Assistons-nous à l'émergence d'une nouvelle superpuissance)?
