Book Highlight - Immer noch tastend den Fluss überqueren

The Chinese development model has undergone numerous changes in recent decades. The People's Republic is currently in the midst of a rapid process of transformation and exploration, with outcomes that are difficult to predict. All of this makes it challenging for Western observers to comprehend and assess the political and economic transformation. However, while within the country, it is repeatedly emphasized that the 'exploratory' process is oriented towards a 'modern socialism' (on the path to a better life in the new era), in the West, and occasionally even within leftist circles, China is categorized as (state) capitalist, and the Chinese self-description is dismissed as mere propaganda.

The controversial Chinese debate regarding their own model, its internal logic, possible developmental directions, norms, and constraints, is largely unknown in the West. This volume aims to address that gap.
