Format: Hardcover
Zhang's book, "Ideology and Economic Reform Under Deng Xiaoping 1978 - 1993", begins with a brief introduction focussing on the importance of ideology in contemporary Chinese politics. Zhang argues that it is still a highly relevant topic in the post-Mao era due to its influence on the modernization process. Zhang then breaks his book down into six chapters each looking at the influence of ideology and economic reforms in a specific period. His general thesis is that a juxtaposition of ideologies has been at play during the period of reform, which has had serious effect on the path that the modernization process has taken. The book appears to have been well researched, and includes a wealth of useful information relating to Ideology, policy, and economic reform in the period in question.

Zhang examines the period 1978 - 1993 and aims to explore the juxtaposition of ideological currents and economic reforms that took place beneath the guiding light of Deng Xiaoping .It starts with a brief introduction that focuses on the relevance of ideology in China in the post-Mao era arguing that, in the era of reform, Ideology is still a very important topic because ideological orientations have influenced policy preferences, which undoubtedly, has had a marked effect on China's modernization path. Zhang (1996: 3) breaks the study into three important groups of questions which are: What have been China's ideological trends since 1978 and Why?; How have these ideological trends influenced China's economic reforms and why?; and what conclusions can be reached on the role of ideology in economic reform during Deng's period of influence?

After the introduction, Zhang uses a chronological format in his study breaking the chapters down into timeframes, or "cycles".
