China and the global economic crisis ( )
13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,027 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

Reform, legitimacy and dilemmas China's politics and society ( )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 912 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
The Nanxun legacy and China's development in the post-Deng era ( )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 889 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
Globalization and state transformation in China by Yongnian Zheng ( )
13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Globalization has thrown up challenges and opportunities which all countries have to grapple with. In his book, Yongnian Zheng explores how China's leaders have embraced global capitalism and market-oriented modernization. He shows that with reform measures properly implemented, the nation-state can not only survive globalization, but can actually be revitalised through outside influence. To adapt to the globalized age, Chinese leaders have encouraged individual enterprise and the development of the entrepreneurial class. The state bureaucratic system and other important economic institutions have been restructured to accommodate a globalized market economy. In rebuilding the economic system in this way, Zheng observes that Chinese leaders have been open to the importation of Western ideas. By contrast, the same leaders are reluctant to import Western concepts of democracy and the rule of law. The author argues that, ultimately, this selectivity will impede China's progress in becoming a modern nation state
China's post-Jiang leadership succession problems and perspectives by John Wong ( )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 548 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

Discovering Chinese nationalism in China : modernization, identity, and international relations by Yongnian Zheng ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 516 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."--BOOK JACKET
De facto federalism in China reforms and dynamics of central-local relations by Yongnian Zheng ( )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first attempt to conceptualize China's central-local relations from the behavioral perspective.

The author defines the political system existing in China as "de facto federalism", and provides a detailed analysis of its sources and dynamics in the book. The system is mainly driven by two related factors - in

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 504 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 political arena, power succession has only just begun even though leadership transition is alm

China's political and economic trends in 2001 by John Wong ( )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 461 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
