Tiger on the brink : Jiang Zemin and China's new elite by Bruce Gilley( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tiger on the Brink is the first full-length study of the rise to power of Jiang Zemin - now the central figure in China's new "third generation" leadership - from his beginnings as the adopted son of a revolutionary martyr and his days as a student in the underground Communist movement in Shanghai to his sudden elevation as Deng Xiaoping's successor in the wake of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre and his confirmation as senior leader after Deng's death. Though many dismissed Jiang as an interim figurehead after Tiananmen, in fact he played a crucial role in bringing China back from the brink of social collapse. Gilley shows how Jiang shared both the concerns of the last of the Party elders, including their idealistic views of Chinese socialism, as well as the outlook of the younger generation of reformers who have helped China to achieve its astounding economic growth in recent years
China's democratic future : how it will happen and where it will lead by Bruce Gilley( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 742 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: The end of communist rule in China will be one of the most momentous events of the twenty-first century, sounding the death knell for the Marxist-Leninist experiment and changing the lives of a fifth of humanity. This book provides a likely blow-by-blow account of how the Chinese Communist Party will be removed from power and how a new democracy will be born. In more than half a century of rule, the Chinese Communist Party has turned a poor and benighted China into a moderately well-off and increasingly influential nation. Yet the Party has failed to keep pace with change since stepping aside from daily life in the late-1970s. After nearly a hundred years of frustrating attempts to create a workable political system following the overthrow of the last dynasty, the prospects for democracy in China are better than ever, according to Bruce Gilley. Gilley predicts an elite-led transformation rather than a popular-led overthrow. He profiles the key actors and looks at the response of excluded elites, such as the military, as well as interested parties such as Taiwan and Tibet. He explains how democracy in China will be very "Chinese," even as it will also embody fundamental universal liberal features. He deals with competing interests-regional, sectoral, and class-of China's economy and society under democracy, addressing the pressing concerns of world business. Finally he considers the implications for Asia as well as for the United States

Asia's giants : comparing China and India( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 354 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

The nature of Asian politics by Bruce Gilley( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Nature of Asian Politics is a broad and thematic treatment of the fundamental factors that characterize politics in the fourteen key countries of Southeast and Northeast Asia. Bruce Gilley begins with an overview of state-society relations, then moves on to the fundamental questions of development and democracy, and finally shifts to an exploration of governance and public policy in the region. This book proposes an Asian governance model that is useful for understanding politics from Japan to Indonesia. By reviving an earlier paradigm known as oriental despotism and applying it to political theories on the Asian region, this book is likely to attract wide debate among students of Asian politics and among Western policy makers seeking to engage the region"--

In search of legitimacy in post-revolutionary China : bringing ideology and governance back in by Heike Holbig( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contemporary politics of China reflect an ongoing effort by the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to claim the right to rule in light of the consequences of economic development, international pressures, and historical change. China stands out within the Asian region for the success the regime has achieved in this effort. By focusing on the changes in China's elite discourse during the reform period and particularly during the last decade, this paper aims to elaborate on the relative importance of various sources of legitimacy as they shift over time, as well as on their inherent dilemmas and limitations. There is evidence of an agile, responsive, and creative party effort to relegitimate the postrevolutionary regime through economic performance, nationalism, ideology, culture, governance, and democracy. At the same time, the paper identifies a clear shift in emphasis from an earlier economic-nationalistic approach to a more ideological-institutional approach. -- regime legitimacy ; China ; Chinese Communist Party ; performance ; nationalism ; ideology ; culturalism ; governance ; democracy
