Product Details


“China’s New Rulers has a more enduring value because of its vivid picture of the party’s procedures in selecting new leaders who also turn out to display outstanding qualities. The book portrays the party as a tightly knit establishment in which younger cadres rise like cream to the top on the basis of a combination of merit and luck in their patronage ties.” — Lucian W. Pye, Foreign Affairs

“Published on the eve of the emergence of a new generation of leadership in China, this volume could not be more timely for China watchers.” —Choice

“It gives an acute account of the men who will oversee [China’s] immediate political future—revealing some intriguing personality quirks along the way—and provides important insights into the problems and solutions that the new rulers are contemplating.” —The Guardian (London)

“As informative as an intelligence assessment….Readers…will be keen for this glimpse into the new leaders’ views on China’s future direction.” —Booklist

“Fascinating for the account…of how the party leadership selects and perpetuates itself; and revelations of what kind of men the new leaders are.” —Jonathan Mirsky, Times Literary Supplement

“A remarkable book…the best guide we shall get…essential reading for anyone involved with China in the broadest sense.” —The Sunday Telegraph (London)
