From the publisher’s description:
This book examines the important theme of reform and reconstruction in twentieth century China, focusing particularly on the Deng era. Chapters are organized around three crucial issues: (i) the extent and limits of state control over economic, social, and cultural life; (ii) prospects for the development of a civil society separate from state control;and (iii) the struggle to define a Chinese national identity which takes China's ethnic diversity into consideration.
