But despite dramatic economic progress, Chinas prospects remain uncertain. In a book sure to provoke debate, Minxin Pei examines the sustainability of the Chinese Communist Partys reform strategy--pursuing pro-market economic policies under one-party rule.Pei casts doubt on three central explanations for why Chinas strategy works: sustained economic development will lead to political liberalization and democratization- gradualist economic transition is a strategy superior to the shock therapy prescribed for the former Soviet Union- and a neo-authoritarian developmental state is essential to economic take-off.

Pei argues that because the Communist Party must retain significant economic control to ensure its political survival, gradualism will ultimately fail.The lack of democratic reforms in China has led to pervasive corruption and a breakdown in political accountability. What has emerged is a decentralized predatory state in which local party bosses have effectively privatized the states authority.

Collusive corruption is widespread and governance is deteriorating. Instead of evolving toward a full market economy, China is trapped in partial economic and political reforms.Combining powerful insights with empirical research, Chinas Trapped Transition offers a provocative assessment of Chinas future as a great power.
