Brief Description

Renowned for his coverage of China's elite politics and leadership transitions, veteran Sinologist Willy Lam has produced the first book-length study in English of the rise of Xi Jinping--General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since November 2012. With rare insight, Lam describes Xi's personal history and his fascination with quasi-Maoist values, the factional politics through which he ascended, the configuration of power of the Fifth-Generation leadership, and the country's likely future directions under the charismatic "princeling."

Renowned for his coverage of China's elite politics and leadership transitions, veteran Sinologist Willy Lam has produced the first book-length study in English of the rise of Xi Jinping--General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since November 2012. With rare insight, Lam describes Xi's personal history and his fascination with quasi-Maoist values, the factional politics through which he ascended, the configuration of power of the Fifth-Generation leadership, and the country's likely future directions under the charismatic "princeling."

Despite an undistinguished career as a provincial administrator, Xi has rapidly amassed more power than his predecessors. He has overawed his rivals and shaken up the party-state hierarchy by launching large-scale anti-corruption and rectification campaigns. With a strong power base in the People's Liberation Army and a vision of China as an "awakening lion," Xi has been flexing China's military muscle in sovereignty rows with countries including Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines while trying to undermine the influence of the United States in the Asia-Pacific region. While Xi is still fine-tuning his art of governance, his zero tolerance for dissent and his preoccupation with upholding the privileges of the "red aristocracy" and the CCP's status as "perennial ruling party" do not bode well for economic, political, or cultural reforms. Lam takes a close look at Xi's ideological and political profile and considers how his conservative outlook might shape what the new strongman calls "the Great Renaissance of the Chinese race."

Review Quotes

1.

"A vivid and compelling account of where quasi-superpower China is being taken by its new supreme leader, Xi Jinping. Informed by the insights of the leading analyst of contemporary Chinese politics, Willy Lam offers a fast-paced and up-to-date biographical account showing why wishful thinkers about the single-party dictatorship's future need to re-think what's really happening in China. A must read with frightening implications."

Edward Friedman, "University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA"

"Following on his acclaimed studies of Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, and Hu Jintao, veteran analyst Willy Wo-Lap Lam has now produced a detailed and balanced portrait of Xi Jinping. Lam s assessment of Xi s personality, career, and worldview provides remarkable insight into the prospects for China s economy, political system, and international role under its strong and determined new leader."

Harry Harding, University of Virginia, USA

"Chinese civilization has survived interludes of violent rule in the past and someday will emerge from its Communist period as well. Meanwhile, the crisis that looms today under Xi Jinping, who brings an unusual combination of narrow vision and brash initiative, augurs more trouble for the Chinese people and likely for the world as well. No one does better than Willy Lam in showing, in meticulous and comprehensive detail, why this is so."

Perry Link, University of California, USA

"Veteran China expert Willy Lam has done it again--producing the first significant book on Xi Jinping's rise and consolidation of power. Based on prodigious research and filled with keen insights, this book should be read carefully by all China watchers."

David Shambaugh, "George Washington University & The Brookings Institution, USA"

"This is a brilliant book that brings a deep understanding of the Chinese past to bear on the present and possible futures. Willy Lam is the authority on this subject; at least as well informed and insightful as a whole embassy full of specialists. His work just gets better and better."

Arthur Waldron, University of Pennsylvania, USA"
