Abstract: The development of China studies reflects not only the cumulative progress of “normal” science and the adventitious availability of particular source materials, but the changing core concerns or leitmotifs of a political system that has undergone several paradigm shifts. During the reform era, there has been a shift from the Maoist emphasis on charismatic leadership and revolutionary momentum to a concern with economic growth and system building. Thus it becomes possible for us to group (domestic) China studies into three subfields: political economy, political sociology, and political structure. Common to all three of them is a shift from top-down, “strong state” assumptions to the construction of complex systems at the middle and lower levels.
