The Twelfth Five-Year Plan For National Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China (2011-2015, Official Document of CPC)
The Twelfth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China (2011-2015) was compiled on the basis of the Proposal of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) for Formulating the Twelfth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development. This plan mainly sets forth the state's strategic intentions, clarifies the focus of the government's work and guides the behavior of market players. It is a grand blueprint for China's economic and social development over the next five years; an action plan for the people of the country's ethnic groups; and an important basis for the government to fulfill its duties in economic regulation, market supervision, social administration and public services.

About the book:
But as renowned social historian Arif Dirlik keenly observed that in China, “Post-socialism is of necessity also post-capitalist.” As the wealth of the country continues to accumulate, the Chinese Communist Party is increasingly concerned about updating the tenets of Karl Marx’s ideology to create a uniquely Chinese-styled Harmonious Socialist Society.
Contributed by 14 international scholars, Seeking Changes: Political Development in Contemporary China gives a historical account and thoughtful analysis of the major changes in the legal system that provided the political grounding for China’s recent economic development. The possibility of a broader definition of democracy that includes single party rule is debated. By contrasting the Chinese experience with those of its neighbors such as Russia, India, Vietnam and Japan, an image of a new Chinese Socialism that incorporates Confucian traditions emerges. Time will tell if this ‘Beijing Consensus’ can serve as a touchstone for the developing world.

About the book:
China has achieved phenomenal economic growth in the last 30
years. Robert Fogel, Nobel Laureate in Economics, predicts that the Chinese
economy will reach $123 trillion and per capita income will hit $85,000 by
2040, ranking it among the super-rich nations in the world. This economic
transformation has been accompanied by political reforms and major societal
changes. In order for China to emerge as a global powerhouse, political reforms
will have to continue to deal with new challenges associated with social
stability, international relations and environmental issues.
China aspires to develop a unique political hierarchy and humanistic democracy which is based on its cultural heritage. This is quite different from the democratic systems commonly found in the West. The Chinese “development model” is not fixed. “Crossing a river by feeling the stones underfoot”- the mantra advocated by Deng Xiaoping will likely remain the guiding principle for pragmatic action and swift adaptation. Looking ahead to the next 30 years, seventeen essays contributed by nineteen leading Chinese and Western scholars trace the steps of China’s recent accomplishments and offer their views on how China can continue its economic and societal development and emerge as a positive world contributor.
“China has made huge progress over the past 30 years. In this book, some of the world’s best visionaries examine if and how China can now transition to a genuine global leader. I highly recommend this very interesting collection of viewpoints.”
Robert J. Herbold, Managing Director of the Herbold Group,
Retired COO of Microsoft Corporation
“The whole world is in awe of China's achievements over the past 30 years and its transformation to a world power. Similarly the world is eager to understand where China will be going in the next 30 years. These essays provide a thought-provoking look into China's future and should serve as a guide to all who are interested in China and its impact on the world stage."Ellis M. Goodman, author of Bear Any Burden

"A gripping, moving, and dramatic story that holds the attention from first page to last. This, Ellis Goodman's first novel, is a masterly work of detection and espionage that deserves the widest readership."
Sir Martin Gilbert - London

Bear Any Burden is a gripping page-turner, full of twists and turns and surprises as much a spy story as an epic family saga, spanning decades and continents, from 19th Century Poland all the way to the height of the cold War. A richly complex thriller in the tradition of Graham Greene and John Le Carre, posing urgent and timeless questions of family, loyalty and liberty.
