The Political Thought of Xi Jinping By Steve Tsang, Olivia Cheung AudioBook summary
Over the course of the last half dozen years, China’s supreme leader Xi Jinping has made extraordinary changes which have profound implications not only for the Chinese people but nations throughout the world. Given how swiftly and fundamentally China’s relations with the rest of the world are changing under Xi’s rule, it is imperative that we know what Xi Jinping Thought is, how it evolved, and why it is so important.
In The Political Thought of Xi Jinping, Steve Tsang and Olivia Cheung provide an authoritative overview of what “Xi Jinping Thought” is and is not and what it means for both China and the world. Xi, now effectively leader for life, has worked to ensure that “Xi Jinping Thought” becomes cemented as the new state ideology. Clearly inspired by the doctrine of “Mao Zedong Thought,” which shaped the parameters of acceptable thinking for a quarter century, Xi wants his doctrine to define what he calls the “China Dream of national rejuvenation” and serve the pathway to its fulfillment by 2050. Drawing from original research of Xi’s speeches, writings, and policies, Tsang and Cheung conceptualize Xi’s vision independently from interpretations provided by the Chinese Communist Party or other sources. They further examine and explain how Xi seeks to transform this vision into reality.
