In April 2018, Chinese President Xi Jinping said that China’s four decades of reform and opening-up have generated many valuable inspirations. “The most important one is that for any country or nation to achieve rejuvenation, they must follow the logic of history and the trend of the times in their pursuit of progress and development.” This book traces the trajectory of modern Chinese history since Deng Xiaoping’s proposal of the Four Cardinal Principles in 1979 to guide the country’s reform and opening-up, and the subsequent advancing of the concept of building socialism with Chinese characteristics. Here, the authors tell the China story of the new era, in which China is participating actively in global governance, upholding win-win cooperation, and building a community of shared future for mankind.
