'June Teufel Dreyer is among the most internationally respected experts on China. This book convincingly demonstrates why. It has been and will continue to be a must-read for generations of students, scholars, and the general public.' - Jing Sun, Associate Professor, University of Denver

'Dreyer expertly examines and provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of the internal and external pressures and changes and continuities that have propelled political, social, and economic developments in contemporary China. From the republican era and the rise of the Chinese communists to post-Mao reforms and China's globalization, Dreyer surveys events, peoples, institutions, and policymaking and their implications within China and for the world.' - Roselyn Hsueh, Temple University, author of China's Regulatory State: A New Strategy for Globalization

'June Teufel Dreyer's latest edition of China's Political System continues the high standard that has been evident in each previous edition. In a crowded field of textbooks on Chinese politics, the two areas that distinguish the best books are comprehensiveness in terms of the coverage of important topics and material that is not only up-to-date but will not become dated quickly. Dreyer has succeeded admirably on both counts, with the high quality of the new chapter on The Era of Xi Jinping and the discussion of the results of the 19th Party Congress, making this the best textbook on Chinese politics currently on the market.' - Stanley Rosen, Professor of Political Science, University of Southern California
