In order to stay in power, the CCP has turned its back on a history in which it had a predisposition to violence when in a tight spot. Now it has made a grand pact with the private sector, allowing entrepreneurs to flourish and large swaths of society to carry on without political interference.

As long as no one talks of setting up competing political parties, this arrangement has worked well. The acceptance of a capitalist class is a mystery that McGregor spends much time explaining. No one really knows what proportion of Chinese GDP comes from the non-state sector, but it is significant. In , the CCP leaders allowed businesspeople to join the party. Since then, as the economy has powered forward, they have become more embedded in the work that the CCP tries to do.

Key parts of the business world, however, are still ruthlessly controlled. The heads of the top companies, largely in power or telecommunications sectors, are appointed by the party. Officials can tolerate a world in which Marxism lives side by side with cut-throat capitalism, in which it is glorious to grow rich, as long as you don't grow political, and in which a middle class has emerged free of most of the restive demands that have occurred in other societies moving from one-party rule to democracy.

Democracy, from all the evidence in this book, is not only a long way off in modern China but would destroy a remarkable hybrid that is, at the moment at least, delivering.

Not that things are problem-free. Corruption has ravaged the CCP in recent years. Control of all key appointments of power in the country means that the party is alone in being its own regulator. McGregor describes the rampant greed of many modern officials, but makes clear that even the cleanest, when they take up positions of power, have to balance meagre official wages of a few hundred pounds a month against bungs from businesspeople and others going into the millions.

Few, if any, are immune. He profiles a Mr Ma, who starts his career with a high-minded refusal to take any backhanders, but who then descends into a world where his life is awash with money. Ma was only unusual in getting caught.

With three successful prosecutions for every embarked on, corruption for cadres is a low-risk, high-return game.
