1) Government and civil society (including the Beijing bureaucracy, local politics, and the role
of advocacy groups);
2) Economic development (including business, the emergence of a middle class, and rural development projects);
3) Environmental issues (including the Three Gorges Dam, pollution problems, and "green" energy projects); and
4) US/China relations (including Chinese perceptions of the west, international security issues such as Taiwan, and trade).
