In Crab and Frog Motion Paradigm Shift, Peter Kien-hong Yu presents a dialectical approach to the study of Chinese (Communist) politics. Yu demonstrates that the application of non-dialectical approaches to the study of Chinese politics over the last eighty years is misguided, due to ample evidence showing that Chinese political figures made use of a particular version of dialectics in their thought and actions. Through case studies, Yu demonstrates that the perception of reality, in terms of dialectics and non-dialectics, makes a striking difference to political analysis, and shows that this framework of thought and action can be applied to any case, word, number, letter, or symbol. This book was awarded a grant by the East Asian Research Institute (U.S.) October 2001.

Perhaps the book's greatest achievement is its demonstration of just how difficult it is to try to quantify and measure and actor's decision-making process, particularly when that process is shrouded within China's opaque political system.--Benjamin T. Brake "China Quarterly "
