China's leading English newsweekly Beijing Review has published a book on China's governance in collaboration with Canada-based publisher Royal Collins. 

The book, titled How China Is Governed--An Inside Look at the Politics of the World's Economic Powerhouse, comprises 30 articles selected from Beijing Review. What  makes this essay collection unique is that most articles were written by international experts based on their observations and research. Its purpose is to be a reference for researchers and anyone interested in learning about China.  

"It is part of Beijing Review's mission to promote a wider knowledge of the rationale underlying China's phenomenal transformation. President Xi Jinping's ideas on development and international cooperation, such as a targeted approach to poverty alleviation, through which China has eradicated absolute poverty, and the Belt and Road Initiative that aims to enhance connectivity along and beyond the ancient Silk Road routes, in particular, are our focus," Li Yafang, President of CICG Americas, Beijing Review's publisher, elaborated.  

The book discusses critical issues regarding China's development over the past decade. Among these are its political system and democratic model, the challenges the ruling Communist Party of China faces and the achievements it has made, and the country's role in promoting global peace and cooperation in the post-pandemic world.  


Contributors include:

--Kerry Brown, Director of the Lau China Institute at King's College London;

--Robert Lawrence Kuhn, Chairman of the Kuhn Foundation in the U.S. and a recipient of the China Reform Friendship Medal;

--Ong Tee Keat, Chairman of the Center for New Inclusive Asia, Malaysia; and

--Josef Gregory Mahoney, a professor of politics and international relations at East China Normal University.

Beijing Review has been documenting China's progress since it first rolled off the press in 1958. In addition to the print edition, it has created an extensive online presence with a multilingual website as well as a social media network that incorporates platforms ranging from WeChat to Facebook.
