Decision to grant Xi his own eponymous school of thought represents a momentous occasion in Chinese politics and history
China’s communist leader, Xi Jinping, looks to have further strengthened his rule over the world’s second largest economy with the apparent confirmation that a new body of political theory bearing his name will be written into the party’s constitution.

Xi is seeking a certain kind of immortality.
