Críticas:

'Among the paradoxes of China's miraculous economic growth is that, despite rising per capita incomes and living standards, popular protest has increased. Since 2010, the People's Republic has thus spent more on its domestic security apparatus than on military security. Yet there has been very little serious scholarship on this development. Xuezhi Guo's book is the first comprehensive analysis of China's security state since the Cultural Revolution. Based on thorough archival research as well as wide reading in contemporary memorial and documentary literature, this is an outstanding monograph.' Lowell Dittmer, University of California, Berkeley

'This fascinating study examines the formation and early development of the Chinese security state. It begins to fill a gaping hole in understanding the intimate relationship between power, authority, coercion, and access to information that is at the heart of political rule under the Communist regime. The strengths of the book are the extensive use of Chinese-language materials and detailed historical descriptions of important but previously little known internal security and intelligence organizations … from the public security services to the praetorian central guards unit. This book offers a useful historical perspective to better comprehend the growing power and reach of the contemporary Chinese security state.' Tai Ming Cheung, University of California, San Diego

Reseña del editor:

China's Security State describes the creation, evolution, and development of Chinese security and intelligence agencies as well as their role in influencing Chinese Communist Party politics throughout the party's history. Xuezhi Guo investigates patterns of leadership politics from the vantage point of security and intelligence organization and operation by providing new evidence and offering alternative interpretations of major events throughout Chinese Communist Party history. This analysis promotes a better understanding of the CCP's mechanisms for control over both Party members and the general population. This study specifies some of the broader implications for theory and research that can help clarify the nature of Chinese politics and potential future developments in the country's security and intelligence services.
