China and the global economic crisis ( )
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The current global financial turmoil, triggered by the US subprime crisis, has spread quickly and resulted in the worst global economic crisis since the 1930s. As the world's third largest economy and the second largest trading nation, China is inevitably affected seriously. How China responds to the crisis and how effective its measures are in sustaining a healthy growth will have important implications, both domestically and internationally. The chapters in this volume are divided into five sections. Section one examines the overall impact of the global economic crisis and the responses of t

The Nanxun legacy and China's development in the post-Deng era ( )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the spring of 1992, Deng Xiaoping made an historical tour of South China, popularly known as the "nanxun" ("southern tour"). During the tour, he boldly called for more radical economic reform and further opening up of China. The "nanxun" has become a political landmark in the history of the People's Republic of China, much like the great events such as the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution and the 1989 Tian'anmen crackdown. Deng Xiaoping has left his own legacy for the country. The "nanxun" belongs to Deng, just as the 1911 revolution belongs to Sun Yat-sen and the communist revolution to Mao Zedong. In this collection of articles, leading China scholars and experts analyze how the "nanxun" has sparked off dynamic economic growth in China and drastically changed the political and social landscape of the country
China development and governance ( )
8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
China has achieved significant socio-economic progress and has become a key player on the international stage after several decades of open-door and reform policy. Looking beyond China's transformation, this book focusses on the theme of governance which is widely regarded as the next most critical element to ensure that China's growth remains sustainable. Today, China is confronted with a host of pressing challenges that call for urgent attention. These include the need to rebalance and restructure the economy, the widening income gaps, the poor integration of migrant populations in the urban areas, insufficient public housing and healthcare coverage, the seeming lack of political reforms and the degree of environmental degradation. In the foreign policy arena, China is likewise under pressure to do more to address global concerns while not appearing to be overly aggressive. The next steps that China takes would have a great deal to do with governance, in terms of how it tackles or fails to address the myriad of challenges, both domestic and foreign. China: Development and Governance, with 57 short chapters in total, is based on up-to-date scholarly research written in a readable and concise style. Besides China's domestic developments, it also covers China's external relations with the United States, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Non-specialists, in particular, should find this volume accessible and useful in keeping up with fast-changing developments in East Asia
Reform, legitimacy and dilemmas China's politics and society ( )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How has China's post-Deng leadership governed the country? How have the changing social and political environments shifted the bases of political legitimacy? What strategies has Jiang Zemin adopted to cope with new circumstances in order to strengthen his leadership? What are the challenges these new reform measures have generated for the leadership? And how have domestic concerns constrained the leadership's intention in China's foreign relations? These are some of the questions which this volume attempts to address. The authors agree that Jiang Zemin is not a man without any political initiative. He has struggled to establish his own style of leadership, and to strengthen the legitimacy of his leadership by setting forth new rules and institutions for political games and by finding new measures to cope with new challenges. This collection of articles shows the success Jiang and his colleagues have had in strengthening their leadership; how the different reform measures have strengthened Jiang's rule; and how the ongoing reform has created new challegnes for his regime

China's post-Jiang leadership succession problems and perspectives by John Wong ( )
7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the 16th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (October 1st, 2002) draws near, China watchers in Washington, Tokyo, Taipei and many other places have their eyes intently fixed on the political scene in Beijing. Most are predicting problems involved in the transition process as well as speculating on the final leadership line-up. Nevertheless, such speculation is intellectually rather futile. To avoid being too speculative, the contributors to this study have focused instead on two key aspects of China's leadership transition: first, changes in the politics of leadership transition, and second, real and potential problems and challenges that China's younger, fourth generation leaders have to grapple when they take over
China's politics and economy in 2003 meeting the post-congress challenges by John Wong ( )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the new team of Chinese leaders at the helm following the successful hosting of the 16th Party Congress in November 2002, the attention of China's scholars has now shifted to the raft of challenges that await the new leadership. In the economic realm, there is unlikely to be any sharp changes in the direction of economic policy-making although the leadership faces a number of daunting issues, such as rising urban unemployment, potential rural unrest and the huge debt burden of state banks. In the political arena, power succession has only just begun even though leadership transition is alm
De facto federalism in China reforms and dynamics of central-local relations by Yongnian Zheng ( )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first attempt to conceptualize China's central-local relations from the behavioral perspective. Although China does not have a federalist system of government, the author believes that, with deepening reform and openness, China's central-local relations is increasingly functioning on federalist principles. Federalism as a functioning system in China is under studied.

China's political and economic trends in 2001 by John Wong ( )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At the beginning of the new century, China's leadership is preparing the ground for a smooth transfer of power from the third generation to the fourth generation leaders. Politicking among different factions has intensified as top leaders who are slated to step down after the 16th National Party Congress in 2002 jockey to put their imprint on the new power configuration. How have President Jiang Zemin and Premier Zhu Rongji dealt with the leadership succession while at the same time keeping an eye on the economy? What kind of power-sharing will be brokered among the different factions? Are the fourth generation leaders ready to take over the reins of power? And will China be able to maintain high growth even as it goes through this period of power transition? The articles in this publication address those issues."--Publisher web site abstract

Discovering Chinese nationalism in China : modernization, identity, and international relations by Yongnian Zheng ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The revival of Chinese nationalism in the 1990s requires a reassessment of China's place in world politics. Yongnian Zheng explores the complicated nature of this revived nationalism in China and presents the reader with a very different picture to that portrayed in Western readings on Chinese nationalism. He argues that China's new nationalism is a reaction to changes in the country's international circumstances and can be regarded as a "voice" over the existing unjustified international order. Zheng shows that the present Chinese leadership is pursuing strategies not to isolate China, but to integrate it into the international community. Based on the author's extensive research in China, the book provides a set of provocative arguments against prevailing Western attitudes to and perceptions of China's nationalism."--Jacket

Wang, Gungwu educator & scholar by Gungwu Wang ( )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The name Wang Gungwu is iconic. He is one of the most eminent scholars and historians on Asia today and is renowned for his scholarship on the history of the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia, and the history and civilisation of China and Southeast Asia. His prolific works and copious contributions to journals and as book chapters are a testament to his internationally recognised expertise in East Asian and Southeast Asian area studies. A well-known scholar aside, Wang has also been an inspiring educator since he embarked on an academic career at the University of Malaya and subsequently at the Australian National University as well as a successful administrator when he became Vice-Chancellor of the University of Hong Kong from 1986 to 1995, Chairman of the Institute of East Asian Political Economy from 1996 to 1997, and Director of the East Asian Institute of the National University of Singapore from 1997 to 2007. This book focuses on Wang Gungwu as an educator and scholar. The volume is organised into three parts. The first section highlights the writings of Wang in the field of higher education. There are 24 selected articles in this collection, many of which were previously published in prominent journals. Several essays originated as keynote speeches at conferences. Spanning over a period of more than three decades from 1971 (when he was with the Australian National University) to 2008 (when he was with the East Asian Institute), Wang shares in the essays his perspectives on a broad range of topics -- the relationship between the university and community (both of which are not monolithic); the role of universities in Asia as global institutions; the benchmark of excellence in education in the Asia-Pacific region; the state of social science study in Asia; the shifting paradigms and their impact on research and writing; and the role of university in shaping modernity in Asia, etc. Despite the publication dates of yore, the issues discussed are not passé and are in fact of significant relevance to universities today. The second section contains a selection of over 50 books written and edited by Wang as well as those written in honour of him. The selection is not exhaustive but it serves as a quick reference guide for general readers to access the trove of Wang's works on Chinese diaspora and overseas Chinese; Chinese culture, history and civilisation; Chinese trade; maritime China; China's ideological battles; the Chinese Communist Party; China's political economy; China's reform; China's external relations; China and the new international order; Chinese world order; migration; nation-building; Hong Kong; Malaya; Malaysia; and, the Iraq War, etc. The third section provides a detailed chronology of Wang Gungwu's life and his illustrious academic career. Born in Java, brought up in what was then British Malaya, and having lived under Dutch and British colonial administration, the Japanese occupation, the Chinese revolution and the newly independent countries of Malaysia and Singapore, Wang's extraordinary set of experiences have enriched his writings as one of the leading historians of China and the doyen of scholarship on the Chinese communities of Southeast Asia
