Abstract

Abstract:

This study examines the political attitude and behaviour of the rank-and-file members of the Communist Party of China (CPC). It compares five generations of Party members that carry distinctive memories during their political socialisation, and the findings show a significant decline in Party identity among the younger members. The empirical evidence, drawn from five national surveys of 11,989 respondents including 1,607 Party members, also suggests that the CPC has moved towards the trend of a populist authoritarian party.
