《民主先生在中國》作者─貝淡寧主張,賢能政治在中國不但擁有悠久的歷史,也是唯一能彌補自由選舉的缺陷,賢能政治將成為21世紀最重要的政治發展途徑。

西方學者經常把政治劃分為好的「民主政治」與不好的「獨裁政治」。但中國的政治模式卻不適用於這兩種模式。過去三十年,中國政治模式逐漸發展為所謂的「賢能政治」,這種特殊的政治型態出現,是如何使中國政治進步(亦或是退步)?而中國又要如何避免賢能政治的缺點?賢能政治又要如何結合民主政治的優勢?西方民主和中國的一黨制在選賢與能方面的優劣性為何?貝淡寧將在本書解答一切。

貝淡寧(Daniel A. Bell),牛津大學政治學博士,現任清華大學政治理論教授和比較政治哲學研究中心主任,教導倫理學與政治學,並深入於中西哲學的比較文學研究中。長年旅居香港、新加坡和北京。著有《城市的精神:為什麼城市特質在全球化時代這麼重要?》(The Spirits of Cities: Why the Identity of a City Matters in a Global Age)及三部政治學著作《東方遭遇西方》、《超越自由民主》和《中國新儒家》,皆由美國普林斯頓大學出版社出版。

 Westerners tend to divide the political world into "good" democracies and "bad" authoritarian regimes. But the Chinese political model does not fit neatly in either category. Over the past three decades, China has evolved a political system that can best be described as "political meritocracy." The China Model seeks to understand the ideals and the reality of this unique political system. How do the ideals of political meritocracy set the standard for evaluating political progress (and regress) in China? How can China avoid the disadvantages of political meritocracy? And how can political meritocracy best be combined with democracy? Daniel Bell answers these questions and more.

Opening with a critique of "one person, one vote" as a way of choosing top leaders, Bell argues that Chinese-style political meritocracy can help to remedy the key flaws of electoral democracy. He discusses the advantages and pitfalls of political meritocracy, distinguishes between different ways of combining meritocracy and democracy, and argues that China has evolved a model of democratic meritocracy that is morally desirable and politically stable. Bell summarizes and evaluates the "China model"--meritocracy at the top, experimentation in the middle, and democracy at the bottom--and its implications for the rest of the world.

A timely and original book that will stir up interest and debate, The China Model looks at a political system that not only has had a long history in China, but could prove to be the most important political development of the twenty-first century.
