Abstract

Increasing economic liberalization of the Chinese media has not resulted in proportional political liberalization, and previous explanations for the state's puzzlingly fi rm grip are inadequate. This article argues that a "regime of uncertainty" is critical toward keeping the Chinese media in line.

Keywords: media, uncertainty, control, Chinese politics, China
