Stein Ringen µ 1 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD Ã The Perfect Dictatorship: China in the 21st Century Nation of Devils Democratic Leadership and the Problem of Obedience ‘A new interpretation of the Chinese party state shows the advantage that derives from a comparative theorist looking at the Chinese system’ Tony Saich Harvard University ‘This is an excellent book which asks important uestions about China’s future In a lively and persuasive manner the author vividly analyses key data in a comparative and theoretical manner Far and away the best introduction to how the CCP dictatorship works’ Edward Friedman University of Wisconsin Madison ‘There is no lack of scholars and pundits abroad who tell us that dictatorship in China is for the greater good In a timely and engagingly written book Stein Ringen systematically demolishes all the components of this claim’ Frank Dikötter University of Hong Kong ‘Stein Ringen shows how the Chinese state has used both fear and material inducements to build a “controlocracy” of a size and complexity unprecedented in world history Perfect as a dictatorship but brutal destructive and wasteful The author’s encyclopedic understanding of his topic is based on a mastery of relevant sc. China is a fascinating country with a very interesting political and economic system that is often inscrutable to outsiders This book sets out to explain how things work in the country today and seek to guess how things will be in the future The system may be protected by a fa ade or misunderstanding aided perhaps by a spate of good fortune The author believes that the government today is a relatively hard line regime that is less strong economically and dictatorial politically than the world has wanted to believe This reviewer doesn t know but the author seemingly knows his stuff and puts forward a sensitive powerful and engaging series of arguments to sustain his position It brings forth a number of interesting uestions and observations against the Chinese state which at worst case could translate into traumatic economic actions and maybe even civil disturbances The author goes against the grain and does not agree that the existing system works for the common Chinese good even if it may appear different to western eyesThe Chinese economy is large and there has been massive economic growth yet the economy has not transformed into a strong structured and sustainable system uestion marks exist as to whether it has been built on a weak uestionable structure that may fall down like the proverbial house of cards in the future If it should happen the reverberations both internally and externally will be long ranging Are the current leaders really leading or clinging on with a harsh dictatorial style desperately trying to keep the train on its tracks The author seems to believe that that they are struggling to keep the lid on things rather than driving the country forward with a strict authoritarian yet benevolent style What of the future The author believes that there is a tug of war about ideologies and how they are implemented and it is far from clear which side will win This was a fascinating and enjoyable book that is packed full of information that provides a great overview of China and a bit of what makes the country tick The book does not claim to have all the answers or even can develop all of the key uestions yet it does not pull its punches with what it can comment on You don t even need to be a China nerd to enjoy this book It is than capable of satisfying the casual curious reader at the same time Autammecom
