Opis: The New Emperors - Kerry Brown

China has become the powerhouse of the world economy and home to 1 in 5 of the world's population, yet we know almost nothing of the people who lead it. How does one become the leader of the world's newest superpower? And who holds the real power in the Chinese system? In The New Emperors, the noted China expert Kerry Brown journeys deep into the heart of the secretive Communist Party. China's system might have its roots in peasant rebellion but it is now firmly under the control of a power-conscious Beijing elite, almost half of whose members are related directly to former senior Party leaders. Brown reveals the intrigue and scandal surrounding the internal battle raging between two China's: one founded by Mao on Communist principles, and a modern China in which 'to get rich is glorious'. At the centre of it all sits the latest Party Secretary, Xi Jinping - the son of a revolutionary, with links both to big business and to the People's Liberation Army. His rise to power is symbolic of the new emperors leading the world's next superpower. 'Kerry Brown's account of China's power elite is sweeping, topical and accessible, and a most valuable addition to our knowledge of the rising superpower.' Jonathan Fenby, author of Tiger Head, Snake Tails and The Penguin History of Modern China 'So many people I meet often discuss China in their own Western context, and have little or no regard for the structure of Chinese society or how it has developed. Few say that the Chinese communist party is the biggest business organisation in the world. Kerry Brown's book is a must read for anyone who has genuine interest or need to understand those complexities, which given how important the country is becoming to the world, means the other 5 billion plus of us that don't live there.' Jim O'Neill, Former Chairman of Goldman Sachs 'Kerry Brown plumbs the depths of power, networks and influence of the newly installed Chinese leadership under Xi Jinping. The result is an insightful framework for understanding how they got there and- importantly- how they intend to stay there.'
