A Note on the 18th Party Congress of the CCP: Personnel Changes and Factional Alliances

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This contrasts with 2002 when Hu Jintao became secretary general in a comprehensive change of power that took place without much drama.
