Time: 6:00 PM



The People’s Republic of China under the leadership of Xi Jinping is undergoing rapid changes at the present time. The nature of these changes was evident during the 19th Party Congress of 2017 and unfolded swiftly thereafter. This volume, produced by a group of 25 China experts of India associated with the Institute of Chinese Studies, offers a detailed examination of Xi Jinping’s initiatives in the context of what was proclaimed as a ‘new era’. The contributions cover several important areas ranging from social, cultural and political spheres to diplomatic dimensions. From a range of vantage points, the authors show that while China at the present turning point has experienced spectacular transformation in almost every sphere, it remains unclear whether the basic issues of our time —namely, the urge for equality, dignity, self- governance and sustainability — have been adequately addressed.

This volume will be of great interest to general readers as well as policy-makers. Students and researchers on China in the fields of Politics, Sociology, Economics, Health Science, Gender Studies, Environment, Culture and International Affairs will find it useful for comparative perspectives.
