Author: Xulio Ríos.
Coinciding with the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China (CCP), Xulio Ríos, recent winner of the Casa Asia 2021 Prize, offers in his new book, The Metamorphosis of Communism in China, a vision of the controversial history of this political formation that spans 1921-2021. Without neglecting other aspects, Ríos focuses on ideology, delving into the period of Soviet influence through the Third International (1921-1935), Maoism (1935-1978), Denguism (1978-2012) and the current Xiism (2012-¿). The essay is full of successes but also of the mistakes and tragedies experienced in this long historical journey, offering a panoramic view of the advances and setbacks experienced by a country obsessed with achieving a modernisation that it hopes to culminate in 2049, when the centenary of the People’s Republic of China will be celebrated. Xulio Ríos is director of the Observatory of Chinese Politics and author of an extensive work on the Asian giant.
