Product description


'… it offers one of the clearest accounts written so far of the various academic trends in contemporary China.' Asian Affairs

'China since Tiananmen is a most impressive narrative of china's political transition in the past decade … By way of examining the past, China since Tiananmen enhances our understanding of the future.' New Zealand International Review

'… the book is clearly one of the finest published in recent years on Chinese politics. Fewsmith does a marvelous job in delineating the different strands of contemporary Chinese intellectual thoughts and in guiding us through the literati landscape of China.' Democratization

'The book is a masterpiece of excavation of intellectual trends that had their origins in the 1980s but were overlooked because of western enthusiasm to see a world that would look like ours. It is descriptive rather than analytical, but it will be an essential resource for anyone who wishes to understand how these changes came about, who the key thinkers were, and how a nascent public opinion played into elite politics.' Development & Change

'… exceptional book … Fewsmith does an excellent job of tracing the ups and downs of the factions within the party leadership and their shifting influence during this tumultuous period.' Journal of East Asian Studies

Book Description

China Since Tiananmen offers a comprehensive assessment of the evolution of China since the Tiananmen Incident (1989). Fewsmith looks at the intellectual trends, and examines the conduct of elite politics to see the ways in which the political system has, and has not, evolved over the past decade.
