This book champions China's domestic politics, which will be essential in shaping the country's role in the world.Many books claim to aid our understanding of China. They assume that it is destined to follow the model of the US; war, empire and unilateralism. However, China From the Inside Out highlights the China's domestic perception of it's own 'rise'. Critically analysing Chinese policy which straddles the paradox between 'socialism' versus 'capitalism with Chinese characteristics', this book looks at the struggle to create a rule of law and foster human rights through a new stage of democratic reform.
