Imagining Globalisation in China: Debates on Ideology, Politics, and Culture
This comprehensive book analyses debates on globalisation in China, focusing on the consequences of globalisation for the ideological, political and cultural realms.
Since the mid-1990s, there has been intense interest in globalisation among the leaders and theorists of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and amongst non-Party Chinese intellectuals. It is the ideological, political and cultural dimensions of globalisation that are the focus of this book. Employing criteria drawn from the ideological history of the CCP and Western globalisation theory, Nick Knight critically evaluates these debates. He demonstrates that, under the influence of the CCP, a regime of truth has emerged on the nature and benefits of globalisation. The book provides a critical assessment of the Chinese discourse on this important subject.
Drawing on a huge number of Chinese and Western documents on globalisation, this book will be invaluable to academics and students interested in contemporary Chinese politics and ideology, and international relations and globalisation theory. It will also greatly appeal to policymakers interested in China's position in and perception of the world.
