Review:

“This is an insightful and thought-provoking book, which is a useable source for students and researchers to understand China’s rise to power. The book is essential readings for scholars and students who are interested in exploring China’s governance perspective.” (Kin Wing Chan, International Planning Studies, Vol. 19 (3-4), September, 2014)

"An inspiring, highly diverse yet coherent collection of essays that explores the relationship between state and society in contemporary China. China's Rise to Power provides important insights into the strategies employed by the Chinese Communist Party to create an appealing image of its rule, and how various sections of Chinese society are responding to these attempts." - Frans-Paul van der Putten, senior research fellow, Netherlands Institute of International Relations

"These ten essays cover diverse aspects of the rise of China, all related to the state-sponsored wish for the harmonious society and its opposite, which is discontent. By looking at case studies varying regionally from Xinjiang in the northwest to Macau in the southeast and topically from feminism to memories of a 1900 massacre, the writers suggest a society with enormous and worsening tensions, which authorities attempt to ease and cover up through appeals to harmony. Beautifully edited and with well chosen and interesting themes, this book is a real contribution to the literature on contemporary China." - Colin Mackerras, professor emeritus, Griffith University, Australia

"This collection of learned essays broadens our understanding of China's rapid transformation in the twenty-first century. These valuable contributions offer fresh perspectives on the contradictions emerging in China's rise as a global player." - R. G. Tiedemann, School of Oriental and African Studies, London
