The book is authored by Wang Bingquan, one of the most renown scholars specialized in the research of political thought trends, he gave a meticulous energy to understand the development laws of political thought trends and make breakthroughs in this area. Men are in interaction with all kinds of political thought trends, how they emerge, develop, transform, vanish and re-emerge in a different historical era, how they embrace and mobilize millions for certain goals, is a vast scientific question. The book investigates this question from a Marxist view and methodology, besides other convenient methods of research. The first part of the book deals to build a systematic conception to answer this question. The second part of the book, investigates into the 3 major political thought trends which most vigorously affect contemporary China: nationalism, civil society, universal values. Wang Bingquan argues that these 3 trends represent a positive effect upon the spiritual production of Chinese people. With the deepening of reform and opening up and the socialist market economy, China’s economic and social structures, patterns of employment and interest relations and distribution mode have become more and more diversified. And the spiritual life of people has become more complex, and the differentiation and diversity between various social consciousness forms have become more obvious, which to a large extent demonstrated by various political thought trends. In China the leading party reproduces and innovates the dominant ideology of socialist core values to support the social system and to achieve a healthy progress towards a comprehensively prosperous socialism. Numerous political trends, have complex relations with the dominant ideology, thus the catchword “guiding social thought trends with socialist core values” is the task and  ”showing tolerance and respect for differences and diversity” is the dealing principle set by the leading party to enable a benign atmosphere in the ideological field. The conclusion part of the book discusses the issues of “guiding social thought trends with socialist core values.” We hope the readers will find abundant thought provoking material and information in this book.
