Analysts of Chinese politics and organizations will welcome this directory. It incorporates a broad range of developments since the Cultural Revolution, an epochal event in China that marked a sharp departure from the stable organizational and personnel patterns evident in the 1950s and early 1960s. This work is unique in comparison with other personnel compilations in its cumulative nature; it allows the researcher to follow changes over a period of time without painstaking comparison with different directories. Going beyond other works in the field, it not only comprehensively covers the 1968-1993 period, it extends the approach to include all leading positions in the organizations covered.
