Chapter Summary

Political reforms are an important part of State-building. In this way, political reforms are by no means isolated actions, but rather are formed through interactions between political bodies and the economy, society and culture. The appearance and growth of civil organizations in China have aptly demonstrated this political logic. China's political institution reforms must originate from the strengthening and improvement of current political institutions and not from completely changing the current political system. The revolutionary nature of these economic and social changes determined that China's governmental reforms would too be revolutionary. In China, the development of civil organizations is at once an indicator of society's power and of social change.
