Xi Jinping has brought more change to China than any leader since Deng Xiaoping. Beijing officials believe his autocratic leadership approach is superior to Western-style democracy.

Last year, The Wall Street Journal explored how Mr. Xi’s political model is reshaping China, and why it has set him on a collision course with the West. Here are some of the key findings.

1. The West Got Xi Jinping Wrong Before Mr. Xi became China’s leader, U.S. officials thought he would favor closer integration with the U.S.-led global order. His background, though, showed a more chauvinistic worldview, grander ambitions to restore China and more tolerance for risk ( https://www.wsj.com/articles/xi-jinping-globalist-autocrat-misread-11608735769?mod=article_inline ) .

Those tendencies led to greater military mobilization, mass internment of ethnic Uighur Muslims in northwestern China ( https://www.wsj.com/articles/beijing-accelerates-campaign-of-ethnic-assimilation-11609431781?mod=article_inline ) and a decision to scrap presidential terms that signaled his intention to stay in power indefinitely.

2. Some Supporters Worry Mr. Xi’s Nationalist Vision Lacks Safeguards Mr. Xi’s guiding ideology, which includes his views on various aspects of governance that share the label “Xi Jinping Thought,” is a fusion of anti-liberal ideas designed primarily to legitimize his continued rule and his quest for national renewal.
