9780195377286: Revenge of the Forbidden City: The Suppression of the Falungong in China, 1999-2005

The Falungong movement originated in 1992 as a system of breathing exercises designed to promote health and well-being. Riding on the coattails of the qigong fever that swept through China, it attracted an extensive following until 1994, when the Chinese government suppressed the qigong movement. A series of protest rallies by Falungong organizations against local government repression set in motion an upward conflict spiral that culminated in the siege of the Party headquarters in Beijing on April 25, 1999, by more than 20,000 Falungong practitioners. Revenge of the Forbidden City begins with the shock of the Politburo against such insolent defiance, resolving to retaliate against the Falungong, a retaliation that represented "the most serious political incident" since the Tiananmen upheaval in 1989.

James W. Tong reveals how the Chinese government's relentless, sustained repression of the Falungong movement typifies its response towards perceived internal threats. Though many claim that the Democratic reforms in China have eroded the government's ability to monitor and control its citizens, the success of the campaign to eradicate Falungong indicates otherwise: the government effectively implemented a multifaceted offensive involving unsparing suppression, pervasive propaganda, and coercive conversion. The successful execution of this complex campaign reveals the resilience of China's authoritarian institutions. Using empirical evidence and thorough analysis, Tong reveals the Chinese state's formidable ability to crush dissent and provides a cogent rebuttal to those who claim that the Communist government is on the verge of collapse. The definitive account of China's response to Falungong, Revenge of the Forbidden City is essential for any scholar interested in how the Chinese state actually operates.

Review:


"Recommended"--CHOICE


"China has certainly risen, but will it be free? This is the provocative question at the hub of James Tong's book. While many theories predict that modernization will weaken the state's power to monitor and punish deviance, thereby permitting pluralism to emerge, Tong subjects these assumptions to a systematic empirical test. In a comparative analysis of the 1999 campaign to eradicate Falungong, the quasi-religious exercise association, he finds the Chinese Party-state still to be suffocatingly powerful-though perhaps less so than before."--Lowell Dittmer, University of California at Berkeley

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. By 1999, the Falungong religious movement had spread widely and broadly throughout China. While on the surface its ideology of spiritual and physical cultivation did not seem threatening, the Chinese government felt otherwise. That year, the government cracked down hard on the movement, and its successful repression of it over a six year period is a textbook example of how the Chinese state operates in the face of perceived internal threats. Its success in containing the movement speaks volumes about the regime s resilience as well. Revenge of the Forbidden City is the definitive account of China s response to Falungong. As James Tong shows, the episode also tells us a great deal about the Chinese state s political institutions, its media apparatus, and its formidable ability to crush dissent. The result is a book that will be essential for any scholar interested in how the Chinese state actually operates. Codice libro della libreria BTE9780195377286
