Overview

Viewing the tumultuous events of the post-Mao era and the period of perestroika in light of broader historical patterns, Mark Lupher focuses on power restructuring - the ebb and flow of state power; the centralization and decentralization of political and economic power; and the three-way struggles among central rulers, various elites, and nonprivileged groups that drive these processes. By comparing and bringing new light to bear on a series of pivotal episodes, he furthers our understanding of power-restructuring processes that will continue to unfold in China, Russia, and the former Soviet republics.
