9781842777237: Living with Reform: China Since 1989 (Global History of the Present)

China is huge. China is growing more powerful. Yet, China remains a great mystery to most people in the West. This contemporary history offers a balanced perspective of the continuing legacy of Maoism in the lifeways not only of China's leaders, but China's working people. It outlines the ambitious economic reforms taken since the 1980s and shows the complex responses to the consequences of reform in China today. It shows the domestic concerns and social forces that shape the foreign policy of one of the worlds great powers. It will equip the reader to judge media reports independently and to consider the experience and values not only of the Chinese government, but also China's workers, women, and minorities.

Review:

"Timothy Cheek offers a remarkably comprehensive and perceptive account of Chinese history in the post-Mao era. He is eloquent in appealing for a critical but fair and balanced view of contemporary China's successes and failures. The general reader, the student and the China scholar alike will profit from reading this thoughtful volume." -- Maurice Meisner, Harvey Goldberg Emeritus Professor of History, University of Wisconsin at Madison "This is a concise, systematic and illuminating introduction to the ways in which China as a complex nation-state works and is experienced by the Chinese during the tumultuous two and half decades of reform. It will appeal to students taking introductory courses on China as well as smart lay readers interested in understanding contemporary China beyond the usual, hackneyed journalistic formulations." -- Adam Yuet Chau, University of London "Timothy Cheek provides readers with a lively introduction to the key dilemmas facing the world's most populous country. Written in an engagingly accessible style and particularly good on the protean nature of the Beijing regime and common foreign misconceptions of the PRC. Living with Reform: China since 1989 is an insightful and timely publication." -- Jeffrey N. Wasserstrom, University of California, Irvine
