This chapter is divided into four sections and focuses on a particular aspect of power and protest in China, then in South Korea. These include aspects of centralised power and how the Chinese Communist Party's Central Committee dealt with individuals who appeared to threaten established power structures by voicing different opinions; the ways in which students expressed disappointment with the slow pace of reform in China; particular student protests for reform and cries for 'democracy' in China; students protest movements in South Korea.
