Communist Party Membership and Regime Dynamics in China.
Bian, Yanjie; Shu, Xiaoling; Logan, John R.
Social Forces, v79 n3 p805-41 Mar 2001
Chinese survey data indicates that Communist party membership in all post-1949 periods was predicted by measures of political screening and was positively associated with mobility into positions of political and managerial authority. Education predicted Communist party membership after 1978, suggesting that China has shifted to recruiting among the educated to create a technocratic elite. (Contains 67 references.) (Author/SV)
