Chinese Politics from Mao to Deng

Excerpt

This volume, comprised of 11 provocative chapters by prominent China specialists, analyzes Chinese politics from Mao Zedong to Deng Ziaoping, and their implications for China's future following a decade of reform programs. Initially, these chapters were presented at the Third Congress of the Professors World Peace Academy (PWPA) at Manila, the Philippines, on August 24-29, 1987. Under the conference theme of "China in a New Era: Continuity and Change," the congress addressed issues concerning the past, present and future development in China.

A total of 12 panels were organized with the participation of more than 98 China specialists from the five continents. Their research papers addressed various aspects of Chinese politics, economic development, law and society, industrial and rural reforms, and foreign and defense policies. The papers were subsequently revised by the authors and collected into five separate volumes, of which the present volume Chinese Politics From Mao to Deng, is the third book to come off the press.

The other volumes cover the fields of defense and foreign policy, economics, comparative reforms, science and technology, as well as Taiwan. It is our hope that these volumes will contribute to our understanding of China as it makes the great leap toward the 21st century under the "four modernizations" program. The organizing committee, which I chaired, attempted to organize the panels to be both interdisciplinary in scope and international in makeup.
