As early as the Yan’an Rectification Movement in the early 1940s, the CPC gradually formed its
systematic theory of Party building that covers the Party’s theoretical development, organization, and
conduct. Building on the experience of the previous four generations of CPC central leadership, the
Central Committee led by Xi Jinping has made major innovations in terms of the theory and practice
of Party building, aiming to propel the development of the Party to a new stage characterized by full
and strict governance over the Party. This book examines how Xi Jinping has deepened the Party’s
understanding of the principles, requirements, and approaches of Party building in the new era. It
analyzes his expositions and policies on the tasks of Party building—strengthening the Party’s political,
ideological, institutional, and organizational development, fighting corruption, maintaining its advanced
nature and integrity, and enhancing its long-term governing capacity. The book also explores how
these tasks are key to the Party’s effort to lead the nation in overcoming the new challenges, advancing
Chinese socialism, and striving for national rejuvenation.
