       Conclusion. 
520    This book describes the relationship between political 
       authoritarianism and people's welfare in modern China. 
       Despite the collapse of the Soviet state in the late 1980s
       and ongoing pressure for political reform. China's current
       leaders reject the idea that authoritarian rule should be 
       abandoned immediately. They claim that in China's present 
       stage of development, enriching the nation is more 
       important than empowering the people politically if wealth
       can deliver benefits to everyone. 
520 8  The book shows that this defence of authoritarian rule is 
       consistent with the position that all major political 
       reformers have taken in twentieth-century China. Based on 
       a study of Chinese political discourse from the 1898 
       reform period to the present, the work demonstrates that 
       support for authoritarian rule in modern China is best 
       understood when compared to ancient political traditions 
       of authority and welfare that were established in China's 
       late Zhou dynasty by the Confucian philosopher Xunzi (298-
       238 BC).
