Political Culture

Combining Tradition and Innovation with “Chinese Characteristics”

(p.59) 3 Political Culture
The Price of China's Economic Development

Zhaohui Hong

University Press of Kentucky

Emphasizing the formation of the power-capital culture as the price of China’s economic development, chapter 3 studies the emergence and characteristics of the power-capital culture. It uses the civic culture as an analytical reference in discussing the common characteristics of both the Confucian culture and Chinese Communist culture in terms of their lack of individual rights, civic participation, and social tolerance. Based on case studies of the Sichuan earthquake and the Beijing Olympics in 2008, chapter 3 argues that the new, hybrid power-capital culture denotes limited civic participation in the political process and selective social tolerance. The chapter also proposes a “triangular framework” to reflect on the uniqueness, utilitarianism, and endurance of the resultant Chinese political culture.

Keywords:   power-capital culture, political culture, civic culture, Confucian culture, Communist culture, individual rights, civic participation, tolerance
