Critical Issues in Contemporary China: Unity, Stability and Development comprehensively examines key problems crucial to understanding modern-day China.

Organized around three interrelated themes of unity, stability and development, each chapter explores distinct issues and debate their significance for China domestically and for Beijing’s engagement with the wider world. While presenting contending explanatory approaches, contributors advance arguments to further critical discussion on selected topics.

Main issues analysed include:

  • political change
  • military transformation
  • legal reforms
  • economic development
  • energy security
  • environmental degradation
  • food security and safety
  • demographic trends
  • migration and urbanization
  • labour unrest
  • health and education
  • social inequalities
  • ethnic conflicts
  • Hong Kong’s integration
  • cross-Strait relations.

Given its thorough and up-to-date assessment of major political, social and economic challenges facing China, this fully revised and substantially expanded new edition is an essential read for any student of Chinese Studies.
