 Foreign Correspondents' Club Hong Kong - The Correspondent - April-May 2001 - Tiananmen Papers =3
While many of the reviews of this book have focused on the hard-line positions taken by Li Peng (in particular), and Deng Xiaoping's behind-the-scenes role, there is much more at stake here than the political fortunes of Li Peng.
All but Li Xiannian lost their high positions (or worse) to Mao's political intrigues, and they universally backed the 1976 coup d'etat following Mao's death.
While Li Peng may chafe at his portrayal, it is my opinion that there is more at stake here than the political fortunes of a single man. By exposing the Elders' role, which technically violates the Party constitution, compiler Zhang Liang is taking on the very structure of China's decision-making.

This is perhaps why Mr Li is the only member in the current PSC who does not give due deference to Mr Jiang.
Mr Jiang is clearly not comfortable with Mr Li, given the latter's credentials and forthright style, which is why he has sidelined him throughout his 13-year reign.
Mr Li's chairmanship of the CPPCC, the body for rallying non-communist groups, confers no real power on him as the CPPCC is seen as no more than a political vase to give the CCP a "democratic'' facade.
