This book examines elite perceptions and behaviour with regard to governance in the People's Republic of China (PRC). Elites are the privileged groups that wield disproportionally large power and influence in society. They can be business leaders, key opinion makers, important politicians, leading intellectuals, etc. who control major material, symbolic, and political resources within a country. In this context, 'perceptions' refer to a mixture of norms, values, and evaluative and non-evaluative understands of a situation or event and governance is measured in terms of expectations, the allocation of power and resources, and performance appraisal. With this in mind, this book will be highly relevant for policy-makers within international organizations, governments, and NGOs outside China as well as appealing to scholars and students interested in Chinese politics and governance.
