Synopsis: Has the current political system in the People's Republic of China lost its legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese public? On the basis of three carefully drawn surveys of Beijing residents between 1995 and 1999, the author finds that diffuse support for the current political system―based on attitudes toward institutions and values―remains strong, at least among city-dwellers, though it is gradually declining. Specific support for current political authorities, as measured by evaluations of their performance in major policy domains, is much weaker, with many citizens evaluating the authorities' performance as mediocre. In analyzing the longitudinal data presented here, the author finds that the same set of key sociodemographic attributes and sociopolitical orientations variably influence citizens' attitudes toward the political system and their evaluations of leaders' performance. Further, the study shows that citizens' attitudes toward the system, on the one hand, and their evaluation of incumbents' performance on the other, have different impacts on forms of political participation, such as voting and contacting authorities.

From the Back Cover: “A fascinating study. . . . Highly recommended.”Choice
"Despite obstacles presented by Chinese authorities, the number of reliable survey-based studies of politics in China by scholars based abroad has grown considerably since the late 1980s. Among such scholars, Jie Chen has engaged in a cross-sectional study: a set of representative sample surveys of Beijing residents, conducted in 1995, 1997 and 1999. The surveys explore the distribution, sources and consequences of political support, an issue of clear relevance to our understanding of regime stability and Communist Party survival. . . . Popular Political Support in Urban China is a thoroughly empirical study. . . . The evidence is presented throughout in a clear style that assumes the reader has no prior knowledge of survey methods, statistical inference, political science. . . . This is undoubtedly a strength."—The China Journal
