Until now there has been no comprehensive, methodologically aware work that covers all aspects of Chinese political culture. Here is the first post-Tiananmen study that reveals just how much, how rapidly, and how dramatically China is changing politically, and why our perceptions of China must keep pace. The book focuses on three major topics: Chinese identities and political culture (regional identities, anti-politics attitudes, Hong Kong identity); public opinion surveys (the Beijing area, Chinese workers, the Shanghai area); and ideological debates (the "new" Confucianism, masculinity and Confucianism, why authoritarianism is popular in China, the decline of official ideology).
