Book News
Noting the paradox of a stock market in a Marxist country, examines the official discourse bridging the gap between the economic reforms being instituted by Deng Xiaoping and the regime's orthodox ideology. Finds that the legitimacy of the government rests on the national myth of revolution and ideological orthodoxy, and shows how they parallel the Confucian doctrines that underlay earlier regimes and provide a continuity across centuries and political systems.
