Our CGOTS Member Professor Elizabeth Freund LARUS 藍若思at the University of Mary Washington in Virginia just published her new book, Politics, and Society in Contemporary China 2nd ed., which is available for your purchase, course adoption, or adoption by your university library.
This book introduces students to the historical context of politics in China, the Mao years and Deng’s reforms, and China’s economy, politics, and society in the Xi Jinping years. You can order a copy by visiting
Please note that examination copies and e-book subscriptions are also available.
I personally used her 1st edition for my Asian politics course before. Her book is an ideal introductory textbook for both undergraduate and graduate courses.
Please share with us your publication and events. APSA-CGOTS coordinating team will do our best to promote and encourage our members to support each other.
