China’s spectacular growth and expanding global role have led to visions of the 21st century being dominated by the last major state on earth ruled by a Communist Party. In this new edition of his widely acclaimed book, renowned China expert Jonathan Fenby shows why such assumptions are wrong. He presents an analysis of China under Xi Jinping which shows the highly significant challenges it faces which stand in the way of global domination. For all its spectacular growth, it has to deal with major political, economic, social and international tests, each involving structural difficultiesthat will put the system under strain.
Based on the author's extensive knowledge of contemporary China and his closeanalysis of Xi's leadership, this incisive analysis offers a pragmatic view of where thecountry is heading at a time when its future is too important an issue for wishful theorizing.
