About this book

We have witnessed the substantial transformation of China studies, particularly Chinese political studies, in the past 30 years due to changes in China and its rising status in the world as well as changes in our ways of conducting research. As area studies specialists, we are no longer “isolated” from the larger disciplines of Political Science and International Relations (IR) but an integral part of them. This book contains theoretically innovative contributions by distinguished political scientists from inside and outside China, who together offer up-to-date overviews of the state of the field of Chinese political studies, combines empirical and normative researches as well as theoretical exploration and case studies, explore the relationship between Western political science scholarship and contemporary Chinese political studies, examine the logic and methods of political science and their scholarly application and most recent developments in the study of Chinese politics, and discuss the hotly-contested and debated issues in Chinese political studies, such as universality and particularity, regularity and diversity, scientification and indigenization, main problems, challenges, opportunities and directions for the disciplinary and intellectual development of Chinese political studies in the context of rising China.

Reviews

The excellent articles in this eye-opening volume offer the analyses of diverse but extremely well-informed scholarship on these most vital matters. This book is a must read for anyone seeking to comprehend these most profound questions about how Chinese political studies has developed and where it is heading.

—Edward Friedman, University of Wisconsin, Madison

 

 

A thought-provoking collection that draws together Chinese and western scholars to ruminate about the field of Chinese politics. This book shows us how research is changing, how area and disciplinary approaches can support each other, and how “indigenous” and western concepts can deepen the study of Chinese politics.

  —Kevin J. O'Brien, University of California, Berkeley
