ECONOMIC reform, POLITICAL reform, SELF-culture, SOCIALISM -- China, and TECHNOLOGICAL innovations
The article offers information on the success of China's progressive development which is correctly handling the relationship between theory and practice. Topics include relationship between incremental reform and stock reform and economic reform and political reform; steady and gradual process of self-improvement and development of the socialist system, which is different from the radical reform path in the Soviet Union; and emphasizing innovation and exploration in advancing the reform.
Contending views about the ‘threats’ and ‘opportunities’ relating to China’s economic rise reflect the complex and, for many, confusing role of the state in China’s reform and development process. This in turn relates to a marked difference between China’s official perception of ‘Socialism with Chinese characteristics’ and alternative views regarding the nature of its emerging capitalist system. This glaring gap in perceptions is problematic in an increasingly globalised world, complicating debates about what China should and will do to rebalance its domestic economy how other nations should and will react to the recent surge in Chinese investment overseas. This paper reflects on these debates in the context of China’s multifaceted and ever-evolving economic system. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

SOCIALISM, ECONOMIC reform, ECONOMIC policy, 1976-2000, CHINA -- Politics & government -- 1976-2002, and CHINESE history, 1976-2002
This paper reviews the evolution of the Chinese socialist regime since the early reforms introduced in 1978. It explores the revisionist concept and innovative practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Differently from the East Asian newly industrialized countries, the Chinese reform had to deliver from the beginning both on the economic and socio-political fronts. This explains why China has forged its own model of economic and political development through redefining the concept of Chinese socialism, learning from Western and Eastern capitalisms.

CHINA -- Economic policy -- 2000-, SOCIALISM -- China, ECONOMIC reform, SOCIOECONOMICS, and CONFERENCES & conventions
By implementing the scientific development outlook and studying the essence of the 17th and l8th Congresses of CPC, it is proposed that economic construction should come first, and coordinative construction should be applied to ease the main social contradiction and to promote the building of socialism with Chinese characteristics. The necessity is pointed out for the change of focus on economic construction to the "focus on coordinative construction of economy, politics, culture, society, ecological civilization and scientific technology", which is commonly recognized as being helpful to the actualization of "Chinese Dreams".

SOCIALISM -- China, CAPITALISM, ECONOMIC reform, and FREE enterprise
The article discusses the decline of the socialist economy of China, which may turn into a capitalist economy. Western-style economic reforms are proving to be against the socialist system of economy as citizens are favoring free enterprise, market-oriented prices, profits and cash bonuses. Politicians are worrying over the fact that if planned production and distribution do not cover the main body of the economy, it will become controlled by spontaneous force of the market economy.
DISCOURSE, COMMUNICATIVE action, SOCIOCULTURAL factors, ECONOMIC reform, ECONOMIC models, and SOCIALISM -- China
Qiye wenhua/'enterprise culture' has emerged as a new paradigm in China's economic reforms. Hailed as China's new 'culture' it featured in an interview with certain executives of non-state owned enterprises. In the examination of this discourse, the concept of 'communicative action' (Habermas, 1998) is adopted as an analytical tool. The main contention in this exploratory examination is that there is speaker intent to justify China's model of socialist market economy. This justification is mainly reflected in the semantic content of the discourse, which stresses what is 'unique' and 'characteristic' in China's economic reforms. The rationale for this contention rests primarily on the argument that given the context of skepticism and criticisms leveled at the Chinese model, and the fact that the speakers themselves are key players in the new market economy, it would be likely that in a public discourse of this nature there would be grounds for attempts at legitimizing the Chinese economic model.

SOCIALISM -- China, ECONOMIC reform, and ENTREPRENEURSHIP
The editor considers the socialist experiment by the communist leadership of China, which included the implementation of market incentives and agricultural and industrial reforms that reward efficiency and entrepreneurship, as a return to capitalism.
CHINESE television dramas, CULTURE, ECONOMIC reform, SOCIALISM, and TELEVISION series
Over the past few years we have witnessed a minor cultural phenomenon in China, with the production and enthusiastic reception nationwide of several television dramas about Chinese workers in the socialist decades. Set in the industrial plants of Liaoning in China's northeast, once the industrial powerhouse of the socialist nation, these drama series centre on the dramatic transformation in workers' experiences from 1949 to the start of economic reforms. In this paper I explore these series, asking: what does the smallscale production but enthusiastic reception of this genre tell us about the contemporary cultural politics of class? This paper addresses this question by (1) highlighting the key aspects of workers' experiences with socialism as depicted in these television narratives; (2) considering the creative agenda of Gao Mantang, the script writer of the most successful industrial-themed television series; and (3) identifying some crucial ways in which the subjectivity of workers and other social groups in contemporary Chinese society intersect to shape the cultural politics of class. This discussion shows that television dramas have indeed become the basis of a widely accessible public forum that helps forge a renewed appreciation of the moral integrity of China's working class, vent a widespread sense of injustice, and foster a certain degree of solidarity between workers and other social classes. At the same time, while television dramas about workers may hold significant potential for mobilising public support for the working class and advocating workers' interests, this discussion also suggests that so far this potential has not been fully exploited.

The article discusses the ideological divide between the left-wing faction and their liberal opponents within the Communist Party of China (CPC). The author contends that the political struggle within the CPC poses a question for China's future as to whether China will return to egalitarian socialism or move towards democratic socialism. An overview of the political left and right wings of the CPC, including the former's adherence to nationalism under the banner of Maoism and the latter's criticism of communist leader Mao Zedong and push for economic reform, is presented.
