Summary

Ya. Berger. China Facing Choice
On the eve of XVIII congress of the CPC, polemics between the supporters of the left and the liberal trends in China in relations of further course of political and economic reforms in the country have intensified. Ideological contradictions are objectively based on different material interests of social groups being formed in the process of deepening social differentia-tion. One of the main topics of the discussion is the future role of state and market, of state-owned and non-state sectors of economy in the national development. The discussion on the is-sues of internal policy is aggravated by the complex international situation. On the other hand, the discussion itself also influences the PRC foreign policy.
Key words: XVIII Congress of the CPC, socialist values, humankind values, Bo Xilai, liberalism, political reforms, market, state ownership, privatization.

The Group of Authors. Japan: The Most Difficult Year in Post-War History
The year of 2011 was one of the hardest for Japan since the end of World War II. On the 11th of March 2011 Japan suffered magnitude 9 earthquake that occurred in the Pacific Ocean off the northeast part of Honshu Island. The earthquake triggered a huge tsunami wave that hit Tohoku region. Japan faced natural-technogenic catastrophe at “Fukushima-1” nuclear power plant that led to the radioactive contamination of the environment. The country had to set a course not only to reconstruct the regions destroyed by the earthquake and the tsunami, but also to shape its new energy policy in the context of rising anti-nuclear sentiment brought by public distrust towards peaceful atom. The disaster made a perceived blow to the Japanese economy that had just started to recover from the global financial and economic crisis. The po-litical situation had become strained in Japan, which led to the change of Prime Minister. Japan also has to solve a number of difficult problems in the relations with its main foreign partners.
