Overview

China’s Political System examines how the government of China is affected by ongoing efforts to harmonize its unique culture with external influences and ideas. Highly respected area specialist June Teufel Dreyer offers expert analysis of historical context and current trends to show how this transition is challenging China’s economic, legal, military, social, and cultural institutions. Throughout the text, Dreyer challenges students to think about the broader problem of governance in China by comprehensively showing how past and present impact leaders, citizens, ethnic minorities, and policies and by incisively considering the different futures for China’s political system.
