Read & Download The Party ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free How do they operate Richard McGregor has spent 20 years reporting on this region of the world. This fellow knows his China and has known it with an All Access pass for decades Well as much access as a non member can have Plus he has callouses on his feet from trying to walk into rough patches barefoot Some of the things he asked to fairly senior Party members would be cringe worthy if they weren t so gutsy and asked so ingenuously Add in the asides he records from trusting low level functionaries whom McGregor actually names and the verified tasty gossip from business people bankers and executives and you eventually realize that the author has had a deep and wide view of how the CCP works for so long that his assessment has become intuitive like a musician being able to play what he hears He s also smart enough to know this only means he knows where the moving target was but he gives a good description of the Wendigo sighted in the woods at midnight Nobody knows where it is now or what fur it s wearing but McGregor sure got a good glimpse of the beast for a moment or two The book is well paced and intrinsically fascinating whether you are into reading about China or not This can serve as additional info for the China hand a primer for the beginner or a good intro for the China generalist looking to add political cred to her vision I m almost done with the book and see no flaws of importance so I give it five stars The only people who know actual Party members don t write books that I can read or have access to

Read & Download The Party ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free China's secret rulers are the largest political organisation in the world But who are they and. This book flirted with 3 stars but finally got a 4 It s overrated in my opinion butThe author has great difficulty though he is obviously well informed about the facts on the ground in understanding and contextualizing the soft authoritarianism that is China today This is proof which one finds often in many walks of life that those who know the most don t always understand the best My own experience in my own field has given me MANY examples of this to be sureI have already explained in my status updates the kind of error this leads him to That China is corrupt dirty large and unwieldy that the Party pulls the strings as best it can etc does not make comparisons with the Stalinist purges apt that it is not forthcoming about SARS is hardly startling given Japan s handling of Fukushima and cf and the West s handling of Assange etc But the problem here goes deeper I believeIt seems to me that MacGregor started out with one thesis and then to his own dismay ended up with a very different thesis Apparently he had wanted to reveal the dirty secret that China is not in fact a liberal utopia and so plays up and indeed with a touch of melodrama the flaws in Chinese governance the Party influence on SEO s etc none of which in fact is in the least remarkable or unknown And in order to do so he spends many long pages narrating anecdotes which do not uite rise to the emotional temperature he had hoped to reach As such the book is sometimes simply boring and predictable and can be easily scannedBut then finally he comes to an Afterword and acknowledges that for all the imperfections the system actually seems to be working pretty well that for all the Atrophy there is indeed a lot of Adaptation and flexibility as well and that as David Shaumbaugh argued the adapation seems to be winning out He also points out how people have been predicting the implosion of China for 20 years and how surprisingly and to the dismay of many in the West uoting from memory here they keep getting proven wrongEven apart from the bears like Pettis et al who are well known I have a colleague who is connected with a well known writer on China among other things and who was telling me with a certainty that China would soon fragment back in 1993 and 1994 So I know this type uite well When I raised the point a year or two ago they nodded knowingly and assured me that their prediction wasn t wrong because it hasn t come true yet HmmmmIn fact the Afterword is a very good brief 10 pages maybe summation of the TRUE state of affairs and if MacGregor had started composing this book AFTER he had come to his conclusions rather than arriving at it in contradiction to the apparent aim and direction of his narrative simply because he had to admit to himself that his narrative had failed that is rather than thinking with the pen this would have been a far useful book At any rate the Afterword got him an extra starOn the other hand maybe he and his editors simply felt that the negative thesis would sell books than would a sober balanced non apocalyptic assessment which btw his journalist s brief couldn t really have pulled off for 300 pages in which case fuck him 3 stars
