The Twilight of Communist Party Rule in China

The Communist Party’s post-Tiananmen survival strategy is exhausted, and its new strategy is likely accelerating the party’s demise.

Minxin Pei is the Tom and Margot Pritzker ’72 Professor of Government at Claremont McKenna College and a non-resident senior fellow of the German Marshall Fund of the United States. His latest book, China’s Crony Capitalism: Dynamics of Regime Decay, will be published by Harvard University Press in 2016. This article is drawn from a larger research project on China’s likely regime transition that has received financial support from the Smith Richardson Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
