Excerpt from Daniel A. Bell's latest book: "So, yes, I do have a political agenda. I aim to de-demonize China’s political system."
It grates to see the author call the CPC (Communist Party of China) the CCP so I wonder if this is as deliberate as it is pervasive in so much Western writing. Not such a good start Mr Bell, but you do make some worthwhile observations, thanks.
A good introduction, makes me want to read for sure. It's super interesting to see that there might be a foreigner at the helm of a university school. Rather disappointing though, of his position relating to Hong Kong National Security Law and Xinjiang. While that is not the focus of his book, those comments makes him lose some credibility.
