Abstract

that have shaped Chinese hybrid identity and political culture. Confucian Marxism closes this gap and manages to situate Confucian philosophizing within contemporary political discourse. In particular, there is a significant overlap to discussions in postcolonial studies. By presenting conceptions of legitimacy in contexts that are significantly different from, yet shaped by, Euro-American cultural contexts, Confucian Marxism forces the reader to rethink whether, and in what form, liberalism can be globalized and detached from its cultural roots. For this reason it will serve as an indispensable reference point for anybody who is concerned with addressing peripheral liberal deformation in a Chinese, as well as global, context. China Model: Political Meritocracy and the Limits of Democracy. By Daniel A. Bell. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2015. Pp. xii + 318. Hardcover $29.85, isbn 978-0-691-16645-2.
