Lin, Chun (2021) Revolution and counterrevolution in China: the paradoxes of Chinese struggle. Verso. ISBN 9781788735636

Full text not available from this repository.


A major new contribution to the study of China’s revolutions and counterrevolutions over the past century. Over recent decades China has experienced massive change and development. China is the world’s fastest growing economy, and has become a global superpower once again. But this development has thrown up a number of seemingly intractable contradictions, both political and economic. In this panoramic study of Chinese history in the twentieth century and its place in the development of global capitalism, Lin Chun argues that the paradoxes of contemporary Chinese society are not simply the product of the development of capitalism or modernity in the country. They are instead the product of the contradictions of its long revolutionary history, as well as the social and political consequences of its post-socialist transition.
