Summary "China's Rise to Power: Conceptions of State Governance examines how a twenty-first century contradiction--the country's combination of authoritarian rule and a market-oriented economy in state-led capitalism--has proven simultaneously appealing and a source of domestic dissatisfaction. Balancing policy analysis with detailed investigation of escalating popular unrest, this essay collection explores the discontent that stems from the Communist leadership's obsession with growth and control, and anticipates new space for alternative governance. As the sixth-generation leaders come of age at this critical juncture, the way out of internal crises will not necessarily be the way of the Chinese Communist Party"-- Provided by publisher
