Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Addresses a paradoxical development of the Deng Xioping era in China: the decline of the regime's legitimacy during a period in which it produced high levels of economic growth, extensive relaxation of state controls, and intellectual pluralism. Misra (political science, U. of Tulsa) analyzes the key ideological debates to illustrate that the root of the problem lay in the fact that there is no long-term sustainable "middle ground" between socialism and capitalism. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Index

intelligent efforts to make Chinese Marxism relevant to the changes sweeping across the nation, China's reform-era elite proved incapable of achieving meaningful intellectual consensus. The resulting Party positions cannot be seen as guides to action, but as post-Marxist rationalizations

which will not endanger elite interests (Richard Kraus, University of Oregon)
