Rethinking Think Tanks in Contemporary China By Silvia Menegazzi
English | PDF | 2018 | 214 Pages | ISBN : 3319572997 | 1.98 MB

This book analyzes how Chinese think tanks have become essential actors in today’s Chinese foreign policy and diplomatic practices. By providing an in-depth analysis of their roles, functions and transformation in the last decade, this study explains how they differ from their Western counterparts and how they have developed during Hu Jintao’s and Xi Jinping’s mandates. Think tanks are often thought to only be able to gain access to political processes within democratic contexts.
Reinventing the Methodology of Studying Contemporary China: Re-testing the One-dot Theory (Repost)

Reinventing the Methodology of Studying Contemporary China: Re-testing the One-dot Theory By Peter Kien-hong YU
English | PDF | 2017 | 176 Pages | ISBN : 9811044295 | 2.2 MB

This book illustrates how the one-dot theory, which is a dialectical study, is well suited to describing, explaining and inferring contemporary China’s past, present and future. It argues that since October 1949, the field of contemporary China studies has been dominated by modified and abandoned non-dialectical theories and models. It also challenges selected non-dialectical theories and models which were first generated in the West, such as the game theory and rational (choice) theory.
