While the ideological basis of China’s rise is widely understood to be an amalgam of Marxism, China’s intellectual heritage, and market economics the sociological theory underpinning Xi Jinping’s The Governance of China has been less well recognized. He is advancing a comprehensive programme for social governance based on concepts of community, institutions, values, citizenship, justice, rights and diversity to create a collective will for national rejuvenation and engagement in global society.
