With 66 million members in its ranks, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is the largest ruling party in the world. Yet, for two decades, the CCP has been marginalized in the field of China study, despite the fact that the CCP continues to dominate both China's domestic development and external affairs amidst radical changes to communist parties in otherparts of the world. For better or for worse, the impact of any major changes in the CCP will go beyond China's national boundary. the analyses and research in this book look at how the CCP has been able to avoid the predicted breakdown of its regime and instead revitalize itself by reaching out to new social forces and strengthening its organisational machine. in this way, the book brings the CCP back into the focal point of our understanding of China's development.
