About the book:
Xi Jinping: Political Career, Governance, and Leadership, 1953-2018 is the first comprehensive and detailed study of Xi Jinping's entire life history and political career. It synthesizes a large corpus of cutting-edge research with original archival material to offer new interpretations into Chinese politics, the rise of China and its implication for the world. By adopting a multi-disciplinary, comparative, and un-ethnocentric approach, the author attempts to integrate China studies more closely with the social science disciplines.
