"If this reviewer were teaching a survey course on China, he would probably adopt this as a required text...The contributors are all well qualified. Materials are current and presented clearly with a minimum of jargon...Summing Up: Recommended."--CHOICE."..both a useful 'introduction' to Chinese politics (as it is modestly subtitled) and 'unique book', as William A. Joseph contends more boldly in his preface. It is useful because it provides a quite comprehensive and up-to-date overview of nearly every dimension of Chinese politics that one might deem pertinent, yet it is also unique (or at least unusual) in at least two respects. First, its coverage is really quite comprehensive, ranging from the Guangxu emperor to Hu Jintao and his likely successor Xi Jinping, and from public health and the environmental crisis to the future of electoral democracy in Hong Kong. Second, the selection of contributing chapter writers is excellent: thus, we have Keith Schoppa on the fall of the Qing, Frederick Teiwes on the Maoist era, Tyrene Whyte on population planning, Robert Barnett on Tibet, David Zweig on political economy, Richard Kraus on the arts, Shelley Rigger on Taiwan, and so forth."--The China Journal
