Populist Authoritarianism

Chinese Political Culture and Regime Sustainability

Wenfang Tang

  • Populist Authoritarianism as an original theoretical framework in understanding authoritarian regimes in general and the dynamics of Chinese politics in particular.
  • The range of public opinion surveys used in the book is unprecedented. Few researchers possess the historical and scientific evidence that allow them to compare change of public opinion from the 1989 Tiananmen protest to present
  • A balanced and nuanced discussion about one of the most popular governments in the world that feels paranoid in a political environment that does not provide institutional guarantee for regime stability
