Civil Society in China by Timothy Brook

Book Description

The concept of civil society was borrowed from 18th-century Europe to provide a framework for understanding the transition to post-authoritarian regimes in Latin America and post-communist regimes elsewhere. This book asks whether this concept is useful for analyzing China.

Books By Author Timothy Brook

Troubled Empire by Timothy Brook Troubled Empire, Paperback (March 2013)

The Mongol takeover in the 1270s changed the course of Chinese history. The Confucian empire - a millennium and a half in the making - was suddenly thrust under foreign occupation. This title explores what happened to China between these two dramatic invasions.

China's Last Empire by Timothy Brook China's Last Empire, Paperback (September 2012)

The Great Qing was the second major Chinese empire ruled by foreigners. This book challenges the standard narrative of Qing China as a decadent, inward-looking state that failed to keep pace with the modern West. It presents the history of China's last empire that is useful for understanding the challenges facing China today.

China's Cosmopolitan Empire by Timothy Brook China's Cosmopolitan Empire, Paperback (April 2012)

The Tang dynasty is often called China's golden age, a period of commercial, religious, and cultural connections from Korea and Japan to the Persian Gulf, and a time of unsurpassed literary creativity. This title captures a dynamic era in which the empire reached its greatest geographical extent under Chinese rule.
