In Their Own Words: The Governance of China

  • Published

The “In Their Own Words” series is dedicated to translations of Chinese documents in order to help non-Mandarin speaking audiences access and understand Chinese thinking. CASI would like to thank all of those involved in this effort.

In the “In Their Own Words” series, CASI and its collaborators aim to provide Chinese texts that illustrate thoughtful, clearly articulated, authoritative foreign perspectives on approaches to warfare at the strategic, operational, and tactical levels.

This translation and publication does not constitute approval by any U.S. Government organization of the contents, inferences, findings and conclusions contained therein. Publication is solely for the exchange and stimulation of ideas.

General Secretary Xi Jinping has complied three volumes of speeches, writings, etc. on what he sees as the future of China, its goals, ends, ways, and means.  As the paramount leader, his vision is central to how China will develop and act in the world. The following translations are included here, so you can read how he, along with the CCP and the PRC, clearly state their vision.
