This volume of 10 essays on modernizing China discusses crucial issues on: China's economic policies; state-church relationship; environmental problems; the Four Modernizations; the role of new economic zones; China's perception of external threats; the role of intellectuals; the status of art policy; and the rights of women in society. The essays examine changes taking place in modern China and attempt to generate intellectual debate on issues such as: whether these changes will lead to a pluralistic, less oppressive open society or whether they will strengthen the hardliners in consolidating their power. They also examine the future of China after Deng. -- Provided by publisher
