BEIJING – The first volume of “Xi Jinping: The Governance of China” was made available in digital form to global readers at four online booksellers starting Friday.

Chinese and English versions of the e-book hit the virtual shelves at the online bookstores of Amazon, Rakuten OverDrive, the CNPeReading platform and iReader Technology.


The book, published by the Foreign Language Press, made its debut in September 2014. It was renamed the first volume of “Xi Jinping: The Governance of China ” after revision and reprinting by the Publicity Department of Communist Party of China Central Committee and related departments and units in January 2018.

The second volume of the book was published in November 2017.


The first and second volumes of the book give domestic and foreign readers authoritative insights on the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era and the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress.

The e-book has the same content as its print equivalent and will extend its reach to global digital readers, offering them a faster and easier approach to Xi’s thought, officials said.
