About This Book

This volume is an updated survey and assessment of the recent policy initiatives of Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao, which have come to be known as the Hu-Wen’s New Deal. Scholars from different academic disciplines and backgrounds from Singapore, the United States, Australia, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mainland China contribute to the 21 chapters. Topics cover the patterns and process of leadership succession, emerging political factions, social unrest, sources of economic growth, income disparities, social security reform, land use policy, banking reform, corporate governance, labour and population policies, rule of law, and changes in the Party and ideology. On the external aspects, discussion includes China’s changing relations with the U.S., Japan and Asean. In many ways, the Hu-Wen leadership today is still coming to grips with the same issues and problems as discussed in this book.
