Party Time free pdf A ground-breaking book of reportage and analysis about what is surely the world's most powerful institution: the Chinese Communist Party. Who is running China? As the third generation since Mao takes charge, where does real power lie? In Party Time, Rowan Callick goes behind the scenes of contemporary China to reveal the workings of its political elite. Nearly a century after its underground beginnings in a Shanghai schoolroom, the Communist Party today exerts remarkable control. From neighbourhood disputes to the highest levels of the army, bureaucracy, commerce and the courts, it governs nearly every corner of Chinese life. Business deals require party approval- university courses reflect party doctrine- party families amass incredible wealth while other enterprises are squeezed out. This is also a colourful portrait of some of the party's 80 million members. Why and how do people join the party? What rituals and responsibilities are involved once they do? Who are the party's up-and-coming leaders, how are they educated and what plans do they have for China's future? Party Time is an essential and eye-opening account of this poorly understood but hugely influential player in world politics.
