Abstract

Extract:
China provides an alternative to the US modernisation model based on liberal democracy by having incorporated capitalism into a socialist policy. It has still to present an acceptable human rights face to the world, but this may be managed through adoption of a contemporary Confucian humanism. Just as Marxism was modified with the 'Chinese charcateristic' of Maoism (peasants as the vanguard of the revolution), so too democracy and human rights are likely to take on a Confucian character.
