China’s Communist Party: Atrophy and Adaptation (review)
AbstractThe Revolution in China in 1949 brought the Communists to power, and for 60 years, the single most important entity in the country has been the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). All the world knows about China’s extraordinary economic reforms, and it is also generally known that the CCP could not have moved the country to a market based economy without abandoning much of the sacred theology of the Communist Socialist State. But what about the CCP itself-its philosophy, its policies, its organization and operations and its key people? This is the subject of a book by Dr. David Shambaugh entitled “China’s Communist Party: Atrophy and Adaptation”.
