How China's Leaders Think Author: Robert Lawrence Kuhn Edition: 1 Description China impacts everyone--an economic superpower competing in every arena of human endeavor. Here are those who run China, its current and future leaders. Here's how China's leaders think about China's growing global strength--in trade, business and finance; in diplomacy, defense and security; in science, technology and innovation; in culture, media and sports--and what this all means for the future of the world. Here also are China's leaders in economics, private business, state-owned enterprises, banking, foreign affairs, military, healthcare, religion, film, television, press, Internet, literature, ideology, and more. Robert Lawrence Kuhn speaks with over 100 Chinese leaders and has inner access to Communist Party officials and material. He focuses on President Hu Jintao's philosophies and policies, and looks to the next generation of China's leaders. Who are China's future leaders? What are they doing today? What's their way of thinking about China's place in the world? What about prospects for democracy and political reform? Is there a road map for political reform? What about the so-called "China Threat?" Or the emerging "China Model?" Kuhn confronts China's leaders with China's problems: economic imbalances (rural vs. urban), pollution, unsustainable development, migrant workers, human rights, democracy, rule of law, corruption, minorities, ethnic conflicts, censorship, social instability, ideological shakeup, shifting moral and family values, religious repression, death penalty, organs from executed prisoners, global conflicts, resource competition, and the worldwide financial crisis. The best way to know China--the best way to do business with China--is to know what motivates China's leaders and what drives their policies. This book is an intimate, candid portrayal of how China's leaders think. Readers will never get closer to China's leaders than this.
