Click here to hear Anne-Marie Brady's B.B.C. World Service radio documentary titled "The Message from China" China's government is no longer a Stalinist-Maoist dictatorship, yet it does not seem to be moving significantly closer to democracy as it is understood in Western terms. After a period of self-imposed exclusion, Chinese society is in the process of a massive transformation in the name of economic progress and integration into the world economy. The Chinese Communist Party (C.C.P.) is seeking to maintain its rule over China indefinitely, creating yet another "new" China. Propaganda and thought work play a key role in this strategy. In this important book, noted China scholar Anne-Marie Brady answers some intriguing questions about China's contemporary propaganda system. Why have propaganda and thought work strengthened their hold in China in recent years? How has the C.C.P. government strengthened its power since 1989 when so many analysts predicted otherwise? How does the C.C.P. maintain its monopoly on political power while dismantling the socialist system? How can the government maintain popular support in China when the uniting force of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist ideology is spent and discredited? What has taken the place of communist ideology? Examining propaganda and thought work in the current period offers readers a unique understanding of how the C.C.P. will address real and perceived threats to stability and its continued hold on power. This innovative book is a must-read for everyone interested in China's growing role in the world community.

Anne-Marie Brady is associate professor in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Canterbury. She is the presenter for the B.B.C. documentary "The Message from China."Review:
Anne-Marie Brady is an authority on Beijing's efforts to attract favorable attention to itself. . . . The central thesis of her path-breaking book is ultimately convincing. (Wall Street Journal Asia)
Propaganda is one of the most important domains in the Chinese party-state. . . . As Anne-Marie Brady demonstrates in a superb study of this central and hidden part of the Chinese system, the surface diversity of the Chinese media hides the guiding hand of a high-level Party office in Beijing called the Central Propaganda Department, which works its will across the whole spectrum of activities in media, education, entertainment—and also in sports. . . . The Beijing Olympics have never been anything but a conscious part of this strategy—what Brady calls a campaign of mass distraction. (New Republic)
A hugely interesting and important book. In a concise 230 pages it explains how since 1989 the Chinese Communist Party has renewed, extended and strengthened its propaganda apparatus. (China Economic Quarterly)
This is a fine study of Chinese domestic and foreign propaganda. . . . The book is well organized. . . . Her research is extensive and up-to-date. The volume should be part of any collection with a focus on mass communications, China studies, or even political science in general. . . . Recommended. (CHOICE)
The best and most current study on [the Chinese propaganda system], and is a welcome addition to our understanding of the evolving party-state in China. . . . A much-needed assessment of the often 'invisible hand' guiding what Chinese citizens are permitted to know and how they know it. (David Shambaugh, The George Washington University and The Brookings Institution China Quarterly)
In a year of unprecedented media coverage of China, Anne-Marie Brady has written a timely book about the Chinese media. She has done much to demystify an understudied topic. . . . The book's most important contribution is to shed light on the institutions, laws and practices which trammel Chinese media. . . . Brady's work deserves much admiration. . . . Marketing Dictatorship is a useful source of information for students of Chinese politics, and an invaluable resource for scholars of the Chinese media. (Ashley Esarey The China Journal)
Anne-Marie Brady . . . has produced an authoritative book on [China's] Central Propaganda Department. (Evan Osnos The New Yorker)
This fascinating book reveals how China's propaganda machine has reinvented itself and today employs a range of sophisticated PR techniques to mold Chinese public opinion. Read this to understand how the Communist Party has strengthened its hold in China. (Jonathan Unger, Australian National University)
