The lack of institutionalization around China's leadership succession was brought into focus again in the run-up to the 16th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party, and the widespread speculation on the final leadership line-up. The essays in this volume take a more analytical approach. This book first looks at the political structures of leadership transition in China, and secondly, seeks to understand the real and potential problems that China's younger, fourth-generation leaders will have to grapple with as they take over the reigns of power.Sample Chapter(s)The Contributors (350 KB)Introduction (97 KB)Contents:Introduction: Succession Problems and Challenges (J Wong & Y-N Zheng)The Politics of Succession: Previous Patterns and a New Process (F C Teiwes)Crossing the Political Minefields of Succession: From Jiang Zemin to Hu Jintao (S-P Zheng)Technocratic Leadership, Private Entrepreneurship, and Party Transformation in the Post-Deng Era (Y-N Zheng)Leadership Succession and Its Impact on the Party's Rank and File (I Wibowo)Central–Provincial Relations and the Fourth Generation Leadership: The Political Dimension (K Forster)Can Democracy Provide an Answer to the National Identity Question?
