Abstract:

Delivers a thorough account of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), explaining its origins and evolution, looking at options for its future, and laying bare its inner workings. "Friends and Enemies" delivers a lucid, provocative history of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Grounding his account in origins of the CCP, Brown charts its early struggles and emergence of the leadership of Mao Zedong in 1930s, before unraveling the role of the Party during the Second World War and the vicious internecine struggle that culminated in CCP's ascent to power (1949). Brown's narrative tackles successes and failures of the CCP in the post-war era, analyzing this period with a close eye to internal machinations of the Party, and then considers the prospects of the CCP in the future. Brown produces a forthright analysis of where the Party stands in the 21st century, and assesses its three greatest challenges: energy, the environment and the economy before culminating in a discussion of the potential for democratic reform and risks the Party faces while it attempts to become a modern party in charge of a globally important economy. "Friends and Enemies" is based on a combination of research and Brown's experiences as a business person and diplomat in China, where he lived for seven years. It has also benefited from the input of analysts from the UK and US, and from talks with Party officials at senior and working levels in China--Publisher's description.
