Evolution of Power: China's Struggle, Survival, and Success, edited by Xiaobing Li and Xiansheng Tian, brings together scholars from multiple disciplines to provide a comprehensive look at China's rapid socio-economic transformation and the dramatic changes in its political institution and culture. Investigating subjects such as party history, leadership style, personality, political movements, civil-military relations, intersection of politics and law, and democratization, this volume situates current legitimacy and constitutional debates in the context of both the country's ideology and traditions and the wider global community. The contributors to this volume clarify key Chinese conceptual frameworks to explain previous subjects that have been confusing or neglected, offering case studies and policy analyses connected with power struggles and political crises in China. A general pattern is introduced and developed to illuminate contemporary problems with government accountability, public opposition, and political transparency. Evolution of Power provides essential scholarship on China's political development and growth.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This ambitious project has involved a group of very prominent scholars who have discussed a whole range of important topics concerning China's developments in recent decades. The book is useful for scholars, government officials as well as college students who are interested in China. -- Shiping Hua, University of Louisville
This wide-ranging, provocative, and multi-disciplinary collection of essays by U.S.-based Chinese scholars discusses most of the core problems facing China, a rising power, whose domestic and international trajectory is of vital importance to all concerned observers. Focusing in part on the leaders who have guided China's development over the past six decades, it embraces widely differing perspectives ranging from quite positive to quite critical. Included are some real gems. -- Steven I. Levine, University of Montana
