The Chinese Communist Party and its polices touch nearly every aspect of life in China and dominate some. The recent 20th Party Congress, which gave Xi Jinping an extraordinary third term as General Secretary, signaled that the Party will continue to determine what is permitted and prohibited in the country’s social, economic, and political life, as well as China’s increasingly consequential foreign relations. Still, the Communist Party always faces persistent limits to what it can control and new obstacles ahead.
Jacques deLisle and Guobin Yang will discuss their new edited volume, The Party Leads All: The Evolving Role of the Chinese Communist Party, which offers a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment, by more than a dozen leading experts, of the party’s roles at a critical moment for the history of the Party and for China and the world.
