The first published work by a sitting Chinese President, Xi Jinping: The Governance of China (September 2014) offered a unique look inside the Communist Party of China and its vision for the future. In the intervening period, Xi Jinping has continued to explore the governance of China in the new era, providing a series of new concepts, ideas, and strategies which add further depth and innovation to the Party's theoretical base.

To reflect the evolution of Xi Jinping, and to help readers gain a full appreciation of the depth and innovation that it offers, this new volume II continues that legacy with 99 of Xi Jinping's spoken and written works from August 2014 to September 2017, along with 29 related photographs. It is divided into 17 sections by topic, with the articles in each section arranged in chronological order. For ease of reading, notes have been added at the end of each article. It is essential reading for anyone interested in knowing how China - and, more specifically, how its President - views the world and China's place within it.

I've also bought copies of this book for my colleagues. I want them to understand socialism with Chinese characteristics. -Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO, Facebook The book explains the position of the Chinese president and the central leadership of the country, which could help us understand China's politics. -Gerhard Schroeder, Former German Chancellor Certainly [President Xi] is working hard at being the confident father to the nation, developing an image which is much less constrained and technocratic than his immediate predecessors. -BBC Xi's compilation of speeches and writings, The Governance of China, sold more than three million copies since its September publication, and has been translated into five languages. Almost every party boss, down to village level, owns a copy. -Bloomberg At great length, the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao explains to the world how China works, what it intends to do in the coming years during his tenure at the top and how its unique governing system will get it there. -Huffington Post In addition to his fondness for Confucius, Mr. Xi has also displayed a penchant for American poetry, quoting U.S. poet Marianne Moore during a recent visit by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. -Wall Street Journal The book is the latest sign that Xi overshadows most of his predecessors in terms of his promotion on the public stage. -Economic Times The Governance of China [was]...laid out on a table at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit's media center. It's unusual to see such a publication issued for a Chinese leader still in office. -U.S. News and World Report
