Chapter Summary

A discussion of the practical route of contemporary China's democratic development must begin with a recognition of the established rule of the Communist Party of China (CPC), incorporating this reality into an evaluation of China's course of political development. In considering the course of China's democratic development, it is necessary to recognize the absence of a democratic political tradition in China's history, the present lack of a developed political or civic culture, and the size of the population, as well as the disparity in economic and political development. China should adopt a logical and gradual strategy of democratic development-that is, beginning within the party and extending outward to include nonparty members, spreading from the elite to the masses, and successively moving from within the organs of the establishment to without.

Keywords: China's democratic development; Chinese political system; Communist Party of China (CPC); intraparty democracy
