Abstract : This thesis addresses the problem of Guanxi or personal relations as a fundamental factor in the exercise of power in China. The author's research follows two lines. The first is the role of the bureaucracy - the primary source of political power - in the traditionist, Maoist, and Dergist eras. The second is the importance of Guanxi or personal relations, and what part these networlcs play in creating and maintaining power. Finally, a case study of piracy or smuggling in the South China Sea examines the bureaucracies involved and how guanxi has been factored into their policies and procedures. (KAR) P. 2
