ABOUT THE BOOK

China under President Xi Jinping has emerged as a major world power and a country that is ready to challenge the status quo in its near neighborhood and beyond.  Yet, the internal workings of China, its  politics and society  remain remote and largely unknown.   This collection of articles is  especially designed  to  introduce  the  reader  to  China's  domestic  reality .   The  book  highlights  key  issues  on  politics, society  and  foreign  policy  in  China,  thus providing  an  overview  of  China  today.


Divided into two parts, the  first  section deals with the  changes in  Chinese political economy since the rise of President Xi Jinping in 2012. A look at key features of Xi Jinping thought helps us identify the main thrust  of China's key domestic  policies. President  Xi's impact  on foreign policy is  showcased and  the  BRICS forum  and  the  One Belt One Road  policy  discussed  in  detail.These  are  policies  that  directly impact  India  and  its  own  foreign  policy.

In  Part II,  the  author focusses on three key issues  of political economy by including  articles on the increasing social and economic inequalities that have emerged under the economic market reform process. These contradictions pose a considerable political challenge to the  legitimacy  of the  Chinese communist party.   The regional and ethnic challenges facing the Chinese government are addressed by looking at development policies and economic growth in Tibet.   Two separate articles look at the lives of Chinese youth and Chinese women.   These show how economic change has transformed the avenues  available  for  youth  and  women  in  China  and  also  their  own  search  for  meaning and  identity. Overall,  the  book  provides  us  with a  comprehensive  overview  of  current  social  and  political  realities  of China under Xi Jinping  and is  a must  read for those  interested in  contemporary China and its  geoeconomics.
