A century after its underground beginnings, the Chinese Communist Party today exerts far-reaching control over every aspect of private life. Beyond its legendary control of the internet within China's borders, even seemingly non-political domains are subject to its authority: routine business deals require party approval; university courses reflect party doctrine; and party families amass incredible wealth while other enterprises are squeezed out. Experts predicted that the Party leadership would mellow as the country's economic fortunes soar, but the next generation of political heavyweights is keeping a tight grip on the reins of power. Today's huge new class of young professionals, whether they believe in the Party's ideology or not, are as focused as ever on strengthening the Party's role and silencing dissent. In The Party Forever, Rowan Callick goes behind the scenes to reveal the workings of China's political elite, introduce us to its future leaders and explore how prepared it is to meet the challenges of its new role in the twenty-first century. This is an essential and eye-opening account of this poorly understood but hugely influential player in world politics.

This groundbreaking book is systematically dismantling the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). It is a final verdict on the CCP that has been rapidly spreading in China. During the CCP's 80-year history, its lies, dictatorship, various political movements and crackdowns have wreaked unprecedented havoc on the land of China and caused irreversible damage to China's traditional moral values. In today's China, under the CCP's violent and despotic rule, social tensions are dangerously high and crises are appearing in succession. The Chinese communist regime is seated on an active volcano that may erupt at any moment. The Nine Commentaries have posed the greatest challenge to the CCP's ideology since the party was established. The book has struck a chord deep in the hearts of many Chinese people - in China and around the world. It is poised to be a major part in the rebirth of the nation's soul.
The chief target of China's infamous Cultural Revolution, Liu Shaoqi is one of the tragic figures of the Chinese revolution. By addressing the issues that decimated China's monolithic elite in the late 1960s, Lowell Dittmer illuminates not only the life and fate of this fascinating leader but also the policy-making process of a revolutionary state facing the diverging exigencies of economic modernization and political development. Liu Shaoqi emerges as the symbol of a systematic endeavor to combine order with revolution and equality using economic efficiency and technocratic values. In this new edition, Mr. Dittmer tells the end of the story -- the death of Liu Shaoqi and the fate of Wang Guangmei (Liu's wife and a notable figure herself) and other members of Liu's family and inner circle -- and the legacy and relevance of Liu's contribution to China in the late twentieth century.
This biography is about one of North Carolina’s early governors, an advocate for public education in the post–Colonial period. Benjamin Smith (1757–1826) came from a distinguished South Carolina family and acquired enormous wealth in the Cape Fear region as a member of the planter class. Like his elite white peers, Smith was active in public life, in county government and as a legislator in state politics. He promoted public schools, the University of North Carolina, domestic manufacturing, banking, penal reform, and internal improvements. Earning the nickname “General” because of his militia activities, he rose to governorship but ended up dying in poverty.

The Tea Party showed its strength in the 2010 mid-terms. Despite the opposition of leading Republicans like Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, and Lindsey Graham, 140 Tea Party candidates ran for Congress. Of the sixty House seats which moved from Democratic to Republican control, twenty-eight were won by Tea Party candidates. At the movement’s height, 29 percent of Americans had “some ties” to the Tea Party, while 2 percent identified themselves as active members. The Tea Party first attracted the media spotlight with Rick Santelli’s televised rant against the government’s bailout of mortgage borrowers on February 19, 2009, which instantly went viral as a video. As the authors document, however, “tea parties” associated with the Ron Paul movement had already been gathering momentum for more than a year. Beginning as a protest against government spending sprees and ballooning deficits, the Tea Party’s sudden fame forced it to define itself on many issues where the membership was seriously divided. The Tea Party is a coalition of different outlooks, united only by belief in small, debt-free government and low taxes. Fiscal conservatives, who were usually liberal on social issues and against American military interventions, battled social conservatives, in an uneasy series of maneuvers which continues unresolved and is described in the book. The Tea Party Explained, written by two Tea Party activists who know the movement inside and out, is aimed at the intrigued and curious reader who wants to find out more about this unique phenomenon. The book gives a well-documented account of the Tea Party, its origins, its evolution, the bitter squabbles over its direction, its amazing successes in 2010, and its electoral rebuff in 2012. Maltsev and Skaskiw analyze the demographics of the Tea Party, the many organizations which have tried to represent, appropriate, or infiltrate the movement, and the ideological divisions in its ranks. The authors evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the Tea Party and its likely future impact. A movement with strong local roots in many cities, firmly supported by a quarter of the US population, will not evaporate after one big defeat, and can be counted on to influence events for decades to come.
