Deng Xiaoping

Portrait of a Chinese Statesman

Edited by David Shambaugh

Studies on Contemporary China

Deng Xiaoping has been vastly important in late twentieth-century Chinese history. This volume explores Deng's rise to power, and his leadership of the country since 1977. The distinguished contributors provide a careful and comprehensive assessment of Deng's statesmanship, and of China under his uneasy mixture of economic reform and political repression.
