Note Originally published in Paris by Gallimard as Demain la Chine : dé́mocratie ou dictature?
"This book makes a compelling case for the continuing strength of China's one-party system, showing that most Chinese, influenced by China's traditional culture and even more so by the regime's Soviet ideology, institutions, and modus operandi, are choosing security, stability, and prosperity over democracy"-- Provided by publisher
Includes bibliographical references and index
