The end of communist rule in China will be one of the most momentous events of the twenty-first century, sounding the death knell for the Marxist-Leninist experiment and changing the lives of a fifth of humanity. This book provides a likely blow-by-blow account of how the Chinese Communist Party will be removed from power and how a new democracy will be born.

Although his theory is disputable, Gilley has laid out, somewhat optimistically, that he believes China can have a non-violent transition to democracy. And, unlike many China authors, he has written about how exactly he thinks it will happen. That's what makes this book unique and interesting... this is a good read for anyone interested in probably the most debated subject about modern Chinese politics.
