China’s transition to state-led capitalism over the past three decades has
generated numerous social struggles against the state and capital.

With China’s ascent in the capitalist world economy, the social struggles
inside China not only have a significant domestic impact, but increasingly
international ramifications.

As China celebrates the Year of the Dragon, it is an opportune time to
critically review the situation for social struggles and their prospects
for the future.
