Item description for Political Civilization And Modernization in China: The Poltical Context of China's Transformation (Series on Contemporary China) by Yang Zhong & Shiping Hua...
This volume is the first comprehensive study of China's "political civilization" since the term was introduced by then Party Secretary Jiang Zemin in 2002. Selected among about 200 papers delivered at an international conference in Beijing in 2004, this collection of ten essays discusses the relations between "political civilization" and political reform in China from the different perspectives of institution building, political culture, political theory, intra-party democracy, political participation, judiciary reform, legislative reform, and media reform. While the contributors are aware of the enormous difficulties China faces in reforming its political system and political culture, most are optimistic about the prospect of reform. Through theoretical discussions, institutional analysis and other empirical methods, prominent scholars, such as Brantly Womack, Weixing Chen, Yufan Hao and Jean-Pierre Cabestan, contribute to our understanding of Chinese politics in unique ways.
