ChinaOCOs Elite Politics provides a new theoretical perspective on elite politics in China and uses this theoretical perspective to explain power transfer from Jiang Zemin to Hu Jintao and political dynamics between different factional groups since the Sixteenth Party Congress of November 2002. It explains the transition in structural terms, presents characteristics of ChinaOCOs political elites, and analyzes the balance of power among formal institutions as well as among factional groups. It also examines political interactions between Jiang Zemin and his cronies on the one side and Hu Jintao and his allies on the other over a number of issues: the epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS); ideological institutionalization; the politics over economic overheating; Jiang ZeminOCOs complete retirement; and Hu JintaoOCOs power consolidation in both ideological and personnel terms."

The third edition of Understanding Contemporary China retains all the useful features of the previous editions, but has been thoroughly updated to reflect such current issues and challenges as China?s dynamic economic growth; its changing social and political culture; its growing international presence as a mediator, investor, and disburser of foreign aid; recent developments in the standoff with Taiwan; and the ever growing impact of environmental degradation.Assuming no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, the book was designed as a core text for ?Introduction to China? courses and can also be used effectively in a variety of discipline-oriented curriculums (especially political science and sociology). Numerous maps and photographs enhance the text.

Political elites are a key topic in contemporary China studies, and have been investigated in relation to factional politics, generation politics, technocracy, and crucially, institutionalization. The institutionalization of elite replacement began in China in the 1980s and quickly accelerated after the early 1990s, as mechanisms emerged to regulate political elites’ entry and exit, including age limits, term limits, and step-by-step promotion. By examining the various processes of elite selection, this book explores the role played by institutionalization in elite recruitment, promotion and turnover in China. While existing studies have developed our understanding of Chinese elite politics, two key puzzles regarding institutionalisation remain. Although institutionalisation is recognised as an important trend in Chinese politics, there is as yet no theoretical framework to explain the forces that have brought about and sustained this. Further, it is unclear how the process of institutionalisation has impacted on factional politics, and how factions would continue to operate within the parameters of formal politics. Drawing on a wide range of studies, this book looks at Politburo members, senior People’s Liberation Army officers, provincial leaders, heads of major central state-owned enterprises, and Youth League affiliates, to provide a comprehensive understanding of elite recruitment and mobility in contemporary China. This book will be of great interests to students and scholars of Chinese politics and government, Chinese studies and Asian politics more broadly.

In Political Regime of Contemporary China, Hongwei Zhao presents a theoretical frame of the multi-layered centralized regime that expounds and proves the modern Chinese political regime in various aspects. Zhao examines the changing process of the political regime from its origin, to its incarnation in the Kingdom Era, to what it is today. The power structure, the policy making process and its implementation throughout the nation and the society, and the mechanism of the political regime alteration are also closely studied. Political Regime of Contemporary China is the only comprehensive academic work on modern Chinese political regime since J. Townsend's Politics in China.

With 66 million members in its ranks, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the largest ruling party in the world. Yet, for two decades, the CCP has been marginalized in the field of China study, despite the fact that the CCP continues to dominate both China's domestic development and external affairs amidst radical changes to communist parties in otherparts of the world. For better or for worse, the impact of any major changes in the CCP will go beyond China's national boundary. the analyses and research in this book look at how the CCP has been able to avoid the predicted breakdown of its regime and instead revitalize itself by reaching out to new social forces and strengthening its organisational machine. in this way, the book brings the CCP back into the focal point of our understanding of China's development.
