Course Description: This course is a comparative and historical study of the most powerful political structure and governing system in modern times. The Party-state system first emerged in the beginning of the 20th century in Russia after the 1917 October Revolution, then inspired parallel political developments in China during the 1920-40s, in Germany during the 1930-40s, and eventually spread to more Central-East European and Asian countries. Special emphasis is placed on post-1976 China for three reasons basically: the Party-state system therein has been displaying some unique novelties despite the noticeable institutional and structural continuity; the system has been appearing more attractive to some parts of the world community amid the recent economic and financial crises affecting numerous countries; and the system has been exercising growing weight upon the lives and future directions of the Hong Kong population and politics.
