The growing disconnect between China's market-oriented economy with
its emerging civil society, and the brittle, anacronistic, and
authoritarian state has given rise to intense discussion and debate
about political reform, not only by Western observers, but also
among Chinese intellectuals. While some expect China's political
reform to lead to democratization, others have proposed to
strengthen the institution of single-party rule and provide it with
a solid legal base. This book brings the ongoing debate to life and
explores the options for political reform. Offering the
perspectives of both Western and Chinese scholars, it presents the
controversial argument for building a consultive rule of law regime
as an alternative to liberal democracy. It provides several
critiques of this thesis, and then tests the thesis through
empirical studies on the development of the rule of law in China.
