Chapter 5: Provincial politics
This chapter deals with the study of provincial politics in China in terms of four aspects. First, it locates provincial politics in a general framework of Chinese politics and introduces the structure of provincial politics in China. Second, it presents theoretical debates over central–provincial relations, the role of provincial leaders in national politics, and the political mobility of provincial leaders. Third, it provides a critical assessment of the state of the art in the subfield and reflects on its practical implications. Fourth, it points to promising ways forward for future study.
