The Handbook of China’s Governance and Domestic Politics looks at how China is governed, how its domestic political system functions and the critical issues that it currently faces. Governed by the world’s largest political party in the world’s longest-ruling Communist regime, China is undergoing a transitional period of rapid economic and social development.

  • Part 1: Organizational principles, including contributions on the CCP and one-party state, state power and governance structures, and the role of the People’s Liberation Army.
  • Part 2: Policy areas, including economics, justice, public health and social policy, education and culture, internal security, and defence and foreign affairs.
  • Part 3: Political processes, with contributions on representation, participation, opposition, centre-local relations and nationalism.
  • Part 4: Contemporary issues, including social change and inequality, corruption, human rights, environmental degradation, social unrest, separatism, resource shortages, media and the internet, and globalization and individualism.
China’s governance and domestic politics also have possible major global consequences, especially in the context of China’s continued rise within the international system. This Handbook will improve understandings of the core national dynamics of this rise and, as levels of international interdependence with China increase, can offer vital insights concerning China’s domestic attributes. Gaining a better knowledge of China’s internal workings can also help readers to better appreciate the multiple and varied problems that China’s leaders will face in the coming decades. Critically, many of the core internal issues facing China also have potential external repercussions, principally in terms of rising social unrest, nationalism, environmental degradation, resource shortages and attitudes towards globalization. This book covers these issues and will help readers to fully comprehend China’s ongoing contemporary global significance.
