A foreign readership-targeted book on China's development road has been published in English by the Hunan People's Publishing House.
The book, What Is Socialism With Chinese Characteristics?, is authored by Zhao Zhikui, a veteran researcher with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
At a symposium on the book's publication in Beijing on April 12, Zhao said that for many years he has hoped to write a book in easy-to-be-understood language to help foreigners know the real China and Chinese socialism.
Zhao's latest work contains a prologue and 11 chapters. It introduces the process to establish the theory of socialism with Chinese characteristics by late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping and interprets the theory's major connotations, citing documents and real examples from China's development over the last three decades.
The China International Book Trading Corp. distributes the book outside of the Chinese mainland.
