In this collection of speeches and writings, China’s President Xi Jinping describes Chinese socialism as highly efficient, but also as a flawed work in progress – something for Chinese leaders to continue to study and tweak as they learn from experience. To Western readers, Xi’s style of writing may seem formal and diplomatically vague, but this is a work of translation carried out for a head of state, so such positioning may be indigenous to its nature. Many of his speeches and interviews address pressing topics – such as the “inefficient management” of the Internet – in broad terms, leaving the reader to draw his or her own conclusions from the language of statecraft. Patient readers will discover gems of insight. While always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends this collection to executives, policy makers, NGO leaders, students, professors and investors seeking insight into one of Earth’s most powerful men.
In this summary, you will learn
- How China’s president Xi Jinping views the evolution of Chinese socialism,
- What opinions he shares about rural development and judicial reform, and
- How Xi envisions China as a powerful but peaceful nation.
