China Under Reform

By Lowell Dittmer

About the Book

In the face of the demise of communism elsewhere, China's unique combination of economic reform and political dictatorship has kept the country intact. Yet Lowell Dittmer questions the ability of this fragile structure to withstand future tremors. In this book, Dittmer convincingly shows how, although the revolutionary impulse has largely been forgotten, it continues to disrupt, inspire, and otherwise shape the reform effort.
