Choice Review

The Chinese Communist party (CCP) has proved it can survive seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Uhalley recounts the party's stormy history and analyzes the economic and social reforms it has imposed upon the world's most populous nation. The reforms have improved the lot of many peasants and workers, but the author believes there are clear limits to the extent to which the party will permit reformers to deviate from basic Russian-style communism. Changes that are too rapid might cause a backlash. The key issues are how much and how rapidly reform will be permitted. Considering the current student demonstrations in Beijing and other major Chinese cities, this is a timely and significant work. It is a must for upper-division undergraduate students who seek to understand the intricacies of contemporary China. Highly recommended. -R. H. Detrick, University of North Texas
