    Willy Lam’s just-released 'Chinese Politics in the Era of Xi Jinping: Renaissance, Reform or Retrogression?' is the climax of a series of his acclaimed earlier works on Chinese leaders from Deng Xiaoping to Hu Jintao.

There are detailed accounts of Xi’s strategy for upholding the status of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as the country’s “perennial ruling party.” Other chapters explore the Xi team’s unique approach to economic growth under “new normal” conditions as well as Beijing’s proactive foreign policy and ultimate goal of challenging the global supremacy of the United States.
