As the world's largest country struggles with itself to build ‘rule by law’, how is this process reshaping Communist Party rule? The Politics of Lawmaking in Post-Mao China examines how China's political and legal structure is quietly but dramatically changing from within, rather than being overthrown from below as in Eastern Europe. Examining the changing relationship between the National People's Congress and the Communist Party hierarchy, this book casts light on China's fight to move toward law and democratization.
