Synopsis

Contemporary China Studies 1 Politics by Tak-Wing Ngo

As the most populated nation on earth with the fourth largest economy and the third largest trading country in the world, the study of contemporary China is currently one of the most popular subjects in the academia. The rise of China has fuelled an explosion of studies on its politics, economy and society in the past few decades. This series, Contemporary China Studies, provides a much needed set of quality references for universities and lecturers to build their curricula, and will also be a valuable tool to researchers undertaking a literature review. Furthermore, this series bridges some gaps in the state of the field by being the first to bring together the seminal writings in the field. Contemporary China Studies I contains more than 50 carefully selected articles and book chapters focusing on the politics of China since 1949. Each volume includes a short introduction giving a summary of the existing scholarship on the historical legacies, development trajectory and current debates concerning the particular theme. Moreover, this four-volume set has a general introduction which pulls together the various themes to offer a general overview of the nature and development of the Chinese political order. Volume One: Genesis of the Party-State System and its Changes and Continuity Volume Two: Changing Modes of Governance and Techniques of Political Discipline Volume Three: Local Autonomy and the Struggle over Central Authority Volume Four: Multiculturalism and the Quest for National Unity

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
