9780521837309: Holding China Together: Diversity and National Integration in the Post-Deng Era

Despite repeated predictions of collapse and disintegration, China has managed to sustain national unity and gain international stature since the 1989 Tiananmen crisis. Examining the sources and dynamics of the resilience, this volume's contributors reveal how China's leaders have adapted and reinforced key economic and political institutions. They also disclose that implementation of complex policies to regulate economic and social life (employment and migration, population planning, industrial adjustment, and regional disparities) has become more effective over time within a context of growing social and economic diversity.

Book Description:

Despite repeated predictions of collapse and disintegration, China has managed to sustain national unity and gain international stature since the Tiananmen crisis of 1989. This volume examines the sources and dynamics of China's resilience. The volume's authors look at how China's leaders have adapted and reinforced key institutions for political integration and economic governance. They also find that implementation of difficult and complex policies to regulate economic and social life--employment and migration, population planning, industrial adjustment, and regional disparities--has become more effective over time within a context of growing social and economic diversity.

In 1998, he was named the first So Kuanlok Professor of Chinese and International Affairs.
