China on China, the power and the peopl by Schulz Contreras, Lisbet

After centuries of Western dominance, the world’s center of economic and political weight is shifting eastward. In just 30 years, China has risen from long-standing poverty to being the second largest economy in the world – faster than any other country in history. What China says and does is therefore of great importance to the entire world. How is China run, and how do the people get their say? Stories and interviews about China’s ruling Communist Party, about being a representative of the people, about the potential political power of blogs, and about grassroots protests and mass incidents, which are only increasing in number.
