What Xi Jinping has accomplished over the past year doesn't look like an old-fashioned Communist Party putsch.But Chinese and Western analysts agree that Xi has achieved a remarkable consolidation of power.Since He has launched an anti-corruption campaign that targeted top officials of Beijing's state security bureau, the national oil company and other previously untouchable power centers. He has sought to impose top-down discipline on local party leaders who had grown rich and arrogant during China's boom years.Like so much in modern China, Xi's reforms are a study in contradiction. Quite the opposite; Xi wants to enhance the party's power.Soon after, Xi announced his "Chinese dream," whose four attributes tellingly included a "strong China".Xi evidently thinks he can reform the party without destroying it.
