요약
"Since 1949, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has maintained an unrivaled grip over the country. Despite economic calamity, widespread social upheaval, and even violence against its own people, the party has overseen the fastest economic growth in history and only strengthened its hold on power. How has it achieved this, and how exactly does the party and the government function? What is political life like for the people of China, and how has this changed over the decades of the party's rule? Is democracy on the horizon? These are some of the questions that animate Bruce Dickson's exploration of Chinese politics today. At the core of the party's practices is a dual approach--repression when faced with existential, political threats, and responsiveness when faced with more localized economic or social unrest. Yet while the regime is responsive to a degree often unacknowledged by international observers, ultimately it is not accountable to the public. The opportunity for the public to chose leaders is limited to very local levels, and it is the party itself that chooses when to compromise and when to repress. Dickson uses this lens to illuminate a number of key questions: How are leaders chosen and how are policies made? When is protest and civic engagement allowed, and when is it suppressed? Acknowledging that the inner workings of the party remain shrouded in secrecy, Dickson draws from the full landscape of sources available to lay out what we know and what the future may hold as Xi's rule extends and takes an increasingly repressive approach to governing"--

목차

"The Party and the People provides a wonderfully clear-eyed look at how the CCP has reinvented itself since 1989."---Jeffrey Wasserstrom, Mekong Review "Dickson''s book gives a useful overview of the various bodies that run China and the party''s involvement in them. He also surveys a series of important questions, such as why the CCP doesn''t like civil society or religious groups. He is especially strong on the issue of nationalism, which many foreign observers assert is growing in China, especially among young people. Dickson gives a sure-footed assessment of public opinion data to show that this is not the case, and that young people are in fact less nationalistic than their parents'' generation."---Ian Johnson, New York Review of Books "Bruce J. Dickson offers a comprehensive description of how China''s authoritarian political system operates. ... Dickson observes how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) manag es to stay in power without the necessary elements of Western liberal democracy, such as individual rights, freedom of speech, and multi party competitive elections."---Wenfang Tang, American Affairs Journal "The Party and the People ... drafts a helpful balance sheet of the party''s strengths and weaknesses, giving readers a better understanding of how the CCP''s versatility enabled it to become the longest-ruling communist party in history."---Orville Schell, Foreign Affairs "Dickson offers a comprehensive primer on how the CCP chooses leaders and makes policy, how it responds to political protests with repression both hard and soft, and how it may use or constrain the forces of nationalism based on what aids its political survival. ... In calm, lucid prose, Dickson traces the evolution of the CCP since 1949, focusing on the recent divergence between local and higher-level leaders."---Nicolas Gattig, Japan Times "An authoritative survey of the major issues confronting China."---Walter C. Clemens, Jr., New York Journal of Books
