This book argues that China’s one-party system is strong and will continue to adapt in the mid-term future. Influenced by China’s traditional culture and even more so by the regime’s Soviet ideology, institutions and modus operandi, most Chinese are not pushing for democracy, privileging security, stability and prosperity to political freedoms and participation. China’s political, economic and intellectual elites either, apart from a small and heavily repressed minority of human rights and democracy activists.
