About this book

This book covers the whole system of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics, dealing with Deng Xiaoping’s theory, the socialist market economy, a moderately well-off (Xiaokang) society, China’s practice and theory of socialist democracy, human rights, and Xi Jinping’s Marxism. In short, the resolute focus is the Reform and Opening-Up.
 Socialism with Chinese Characteristics is one of the most important global realities today. However, the concept and its practice remain largely misunderstood outside China. This book sets to redress such a lack of knowledge, by making available to non-Chinese speakers the sophisticated debates and conclusions in China concerning socialism with Chinese Characteristics. It presents this material in a way that is both accessible and thorough.

Reviews

“This is an excellent book. It is analytical, thoughtful, well researched and sensitive … . The knowledge and understanding the author shows are vast, and the sources he has used are extensive and appropriate. Considering the complexity of the subject, the written style is easy to follow. In short, this book has all the hallmarks of good scholarship. … Boer’s is a splendid book that deserves success. It is a real contribution to the literature in an important field.” (Colin Mackerras, Fudan Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences, June 21, 2021)

“Truthful to its title, the book is a guide to Chinese socialism, both comprehensive and incisive … most importantly, as a framework and guide for social practice. … For those who wonder whether China is still socialist or suspect that Chinese Communist Party abandoned Marxism, the book provides a lot of material on which to base their answers. In fact, anyone who wants to engage seriously and extensively with ‘socialism with Chinese characteristics’ should read the book.” (Tamara Prosic, socialistchina.org, June 20, 2021)
