9780199244171: Elections and Democracy in Greater China (Studies on Contemporary China)

This book examines why and how limited electoral competition developed in Greater China. The editors attribute Taiwan's electoral competition to breakthroughs in the political, ideological, economic and organizational marketplaces. Without similar breakthroughs, Hong Kong and Mainland China aren't likely to achieve electoral competition.

Review:

A timely analysis of an important ongoing area of reform ... thoughtful introductory essay by the editors ... The volume should be an interesting background reader for those working in the fields of China studies, politics, and democratisation in post-communist societies. * Asian Affairs * ... scholars working in the area of comparative politics and especially in the field of transitions to democracy will rejoice in the appearance of this useful volume ... moreover the contrasts among Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan give nourishing food for thought with respect to the economic preconditions of democratic transitions. This book should make its way onto the syllabus in upper year and graduate seminars. * Canadian Journal of Political Science * ... a state of the art analysis. No other book offers a better, more comprehensive look at the prospects for democracy in China. * The China Journal * Diamond and Myers' wise introductory analysis of how democracies evolve forms the backbone of the book. Students at all levels will benefit from reading it. * The China Journal *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The authoritarian Chinese regimes governing Taiwan, Mainland China, and Hong Kong allowed limited electoral competition during the last half century. In Taiwan that process evolved over more than three decades before leading to the formation of an opposition party under martial law in late September 1986 and the blossoming of full democracy in March 2000 when that opposition party replaced the ruling party. In Mainland China and Hong Kong, limited electoral competition has only evolved over the last fifteen years or so. This volume examines why and how limited electoral competition developed in Greater China. The editors use a typology and different concepts to analyse how the political centre in these three Chinese societies historically interacted with society and how different regime change took place. Their analysis attributes Taiwan s robust electoral competition under martial law to political breakthroughs in the political, ideological, economic, and organizational marketplaces. Without similar political breakthroughs in Mainland China and Hong Kong, their limited electoral processes are not likely to lead to the election of one or more opposition parties in Mainland China and the direct election of a Hong Kong governor and parliament. These two authoritarian regimes have adopted different institutions, or rules, to limit electoral competition. Moreover, different changes have been taking place in their political, ideological, economic, and organizational marketplaces than occurred in Taiwan. Therefore, whether these two Chinese societies can mimic the Taiwan democratization path remains problematic. Only the passage of time will reveal whether their limited electoral competitive processes can transform into full democracy. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780199244171
