Description - The New Chinese Empire by Ross Terrill

A new society and economy has blossomed in post-Mao China, but an old state holds it back. The Chinese dynastic state's blend of idealism and realism, attachment to doctrine, paternalism, and obsession with unity has continued to shadow `revolutionary China'. This book addresses the question central to China today: Is the People's Republic of China, whose politics is a hybrid of Chinese imperial tradition and Western Marxism, willing to become a modern nation or does it insist on remaining an empire?
