Zhang Shuhua. Changes in World Politics and the New Era of China

In ten years the world economy, politics, ideology, culture, and even the media have undergone tremendous changes. The scales of world politics began to lean towards China, Russia and other representatives of the non-Western world. The widely publicized Western democratic «monism» has entered a period of erosion in the last two decades. Typical phenomena were the split of the Western political camp, doubts about basic values, polarization of political thought and political forces.

China did not stop at the level of the simplified scheme proposed by the West: westernization — democratization — privatization — liberalization. The West democracy vs. non-West autocracy dichotomy is not applicable to the analysis of China’s development. The political development of China is characterized by comprehensiveness, stability and efficiency, and demonstrates high competitiveness and potential.

Key words: world politics, democratization, political development, Chinese way.

Key words: cyber security, strategy, Republic of Korea, cyber attack, information security.

B. Balakin. Dialectics of East Asian Integration

The East Asian model of statehood is determined by the existing traditions in the field of legal construction. They have been formed for several millennia, mainly in China. The latter factor plays a crucial role, since the essence of the Chinese paradigm of regional integration is now on the agenda in the context of the steadily growing civilizational clash between East and West. The existing statehood of the East Asian countries is the result of the longtime development of various integration processes. But there is no primitive Western rationality in this inte-gration. The deep tradition acts as an irrevocable counter-balance to the specially implemented elements, presented in the Anglo-Saxon doctrine of global domination.

Key words: East Asia, integration, statehood, China, traditions.

Key words: China, politics, revolution, research institute, Chinese studies.

The author considers the so-called Chinese operations in the context of the »national» operations of »the great terror», namely the »Harbinian». This repression was started on September 20, 1937, when the People’s Commissar of the Internal Affairs N. Yezhov signed Order No. 00593, aimed at countering »Japanese espionage» in the USSR. On the basis of protocol decisions and summary reports of the NKVD it is concluded that almost onethird of all convicts in the Harbin case belonged to the so-called Far Eastern Chinese. It is proved that the consequence of a largescale repressive action was a significant reduction of Chinese diaspora in the country.
