About this product
- DescriptionWhen the fifth generation of Communist Party leaders in China assumed top political positions in 2012-2013, they took the helm of a country that has achieved remarkable ecomic growth, political stability, and international influence. Yet China today confronts challenges at least as daunting as any it has faced since the reform era began in the late 1970s. In November 2013, the Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee anunced ambitious reforms to address vital issues, such as giving market forces a decisive role in the ecomy, strengthening the social safety net, assigning greater weight to factors other than ecomic growth and social order in evaluating local officials, promoting urbanization, and relaxing the one child policy. China's Challenges brings together fourteen experts on China's social, ecomic, political, legal, and foreign affairs to examine some of the nation's pivotal policy issues. Their wide-ranging analyses cover ecomic and social inequality, internal migration and population control, imperatives to rebalance China's ecomy toward domestic demand and consumption, problems of official corruption, tensions between legal reform and social order, and the strained relationships with neighboring countries and the United States that stem from China's rising power, military modernization, enduring territorial disputes, and rising nationalism in domestic politics. This timely volume offers a broad and comprehensive look at the issues facing China today and lays the groundwork for understanding the shifts to come. How-and how well-China handles these challenges t only will define China's trajectory for years to come, but will have repercussions far beyond China's borders. Contributors: Yong Cai, Jacques deLisle, Jane Duckett, Andrew Erickson, M. Taylor Fravel, Avery Goldstein, Yasheng Huang, Zai Liang, Benjamin Liebman, Melanie Manion, Barry Naughton, Daniela Stockmann, Robert Sutter, Guohui Wang.
