New on the site, Wang Shaoguang, "Traditional Moral Politics and Contemporary Concepts of Governance," an interview with the journalist Ma Ya conducted in September 2012. The text provides a good overview of the Wang's work over the past few years defending Chinese democracy from the point of view of the New Left.
New on the site: Constitutional scholar Gao Quanxi on "The Political Maturity of Chinese Liberalism," by which he of course means the political immaturity of Chinese liberalism. Not as rousing as Qin Hui on globalization and China's "low human rights advantage," but a text that many Chinese liberals see as one of the most important of the past few years. Enjoy!
