The continuation of China's successful rise depends considerably on the capacity of the Chinese government to prevent and manage a wide range of potential and actual crises, which could, if mishandled, have serious adverse consequences for China. These potential crises are both domestic - where the example of the collapse of the Soviet Union is well understood and remembered in China - and, increasingly, as a result of China's ever closer involvement in the global system. This book presents a comprehensive overview of crisis management in China, and examines China's mode of managing economic, political and military crises, as well as natural disasters, ethnic-minority issues, environmental and public health problems. In each area it considers the nature of potential crises and their possible effects, and the degree to which China is prepared to cope with crises.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The ultimate test of a state's ability to survive comes from crises, whether a natural disaster or a man-made political crisis. For all those interested in the survival of the incumbent regime in China, this unique and informative book will be required reading." - Bruce Dickson, George Washington University, USA

"In thirty years of rapid social and economic development, China's crisis management and crisis avoidance have been exemplary. This volume provides an invaluable guide to crisis development and response in the People's Republic." - David S. G. Goodman, University of Sydney, Australia

"A remarkably timely study, which addresses key issues such as government capacity, leadership abilities, regime legitimacy, system survivability, all leading to the perennial question - will the People's Republic be able to manage all its crises and continue long into the future?" - David Zweig, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong
