Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. The long history of Chinas relationship between stability, diversity, and prosperity, and how its current leadership threatens this delicate balance Chinese society has been shaped by the interplay of the EASTexams, autocracy, stability, and technologyfrom ancient times through the present. Beginning with the Sui dynastys introduction of the civil service exam, known as Keju, in 587 CEand continuing through the personnel management system used by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)Chinese autocracies have developed exceptional tools for homogenizing ideas, norms, and practices. But this uniformity came with a huge downside: stifled creativity. Yasheng Huang shows how China transitioned from dynamism to extreme stagnation after the Keju was instituted. Chinas most prosperous periods, such as during the Tang dynasty (618907) and under the reformist CCP, occurred when its emphasis on scale (the size of bureaucracy) was balanced with scope (diversity of ideas). Considering Chinas remarkable success over the past half-century, Huang sees signs of danger in the political and economic reversals under Xi Jinping. The CCP has again vaulted conformity above new ideas, reverting to the Keju model that eventually led to technological decline. It is a lesson from Chinas own history, Huang argues, that Chinese leaders would be wise to take seriously. The long history of Chinas relationship between stability, diversity, and prosperity, and how its current leadership threatens this delicate balance Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
