"China Briefing, 1988" approaches the events of the previous year differently from past volumes in the series, providing a long-term perspective on the dramatic developments of spring and summer 1987. Senior China specialists examine the student demonstrations and their aftermath in the larger context of the 40-year history of the People's Republic of China and also reflect on future directions for the nation. The authors assess the impact of the events of 1987 on politics, the economy, foreign relations, social issues, and culture, as well as on Taiwan, Tibet, and Hong Kong.
