First Edition

Neil Collins and David O'Brien

Published by Manchester University Press

Pocket Politics

  • Especially timely with publication just after National People's Congress in November 2017. This congress meets once every five years and is a key event in Chinese politics when older retiring leaders are replaced by a new generation
  • Makes a unique contribution by adopting an ethnographic approach that goes beyond the usual descriptions from outside and gives voice to the people who actually live there, hearing their views, hopes and ideas
  • The authors have written on, worked in, lived in and researched China for many years, travelling widely to gain a fuller understanding of this complex land
  • Our work offers a unique and accessible perspective where everyday life in China provides the insight at a key moment in the nation>'s history
