9780674060647: The People's Republic of China at 60: An International Assessment

To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the PRC, the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies convened a conference to consider this question: After three decades of internal strife, followed by reform, entrepreneurialism, and internationalization, is the PRC here for the dynastic long haul? This volume presents an energetic exchange of views on the topic.

About the Author:

William C. Kirby is the Spangler Family Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, T. M. Chang Professor of China Studies, and Director of the Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies at Harvard University.

Review:

These impressive conference papers by China specialists from across the world offer instructive views on the 60-year history of the People's Republic of China (PRC). From varied angles and in different tongues, the contributors discuss in fine interdisciplinary fashion important political, social, and cultural aspects of the PRC from 1949 to 2009...For a balanced, realistic understanding of China's past, present, and future, this assemblage of academic musings calls for a new paradigm to substitute for the conventionally Western-centered way of looking at China. (G. Zheng Choice 2012-02-01)
