The Governance of the Rising Civil Society in China (In 2 Volumes) attempts to provide an overview of social political changes in the Chinese society since the global financial crisis and examine how the Chinese state has responded to those changes. Rapid economic development has restructured the setup of the society and empowered or weakened certain social players. The chapters in the volumes provide an updated account of a wide range of social changes, including the rise of the middle class and private entrepreneurs, political mobilization on the Internet, the declining social status of the working class, as well as the resurgence of non-governmental organizations, and the rising public protests. The Chinese leadership has demonstrated great capability of adaptation and developed sophisticated mechanisms of social control, such as co-opting various social forces, managing floating population, monitoring religious organizations, as well as controls over media, trade unions, the Internet, and the cultural industries. The authors also discuss future challenges and possible policy adjustments.
