    schema:description "Many contemporary methods of governance have their roots in techniques of policy generation and implementation dating to the revolution and early PRC techniques that emphasize continual experimentation. China's long revolution had given rise to this guerrilla-style decisionmaking as a way of dealing creatively with pervasive uncertainty.
