Abstract

Paul A. Cohen applies a historical perspective to the post-Mao reforms in China, which have until now been largely the domain of social scientists. He takes as his themes two processes that have been at work at least since the late Qing and continue to be of great importance in the 1980s--state building and authoritarian reform. His analysis suggests that even though in some respects the older processes have taken new shapes in the recent period, in others they have shown remarkable continuities with the past.
