To solve the kind of problems confronting us in this day and age, the wisdom and strength that we ourselves have discovered and developed is not enough – we must also be able to access the sources accumulated over the course of human history. Xi Jinping: The Governance of China is a repository of such wisdom and strength. It is a key that will unlock understanding of China's past history and present reality, and a lamp to shed light on China's future development.

When France and China established diplomatic ties 50 years ago, General de Gaulle predicted that China would take its place in the world as an important power again. Today, history has validated the vision of the great statesman.
With the rapid rise of China, people around the world are asking: Where is China headed? What does China's rise mean to the rest of the world?
The Governance of China by Xi Jinping is a collection of important speeches and interviews of the Chinese president over the past two years.
It informs both China experts and ordinary readers of Xi's vision for his own country, his governance over the past two years and his strategies for the future of this important country.
