Centenary Propaganda and Chinese Socialism

Centenary Propaganda and Chinese Socialism.

The first of a two-part series on the centenary of the Chinese Communist Party analyzes the rise to power of President Xi Jinping and his use of propaganda to transform a celebration of the CCP into a celebration of China and its leader.

The second brief in the series, on the rise of Chinese nationalism under Xi Jinping, is available here.
