Engineers of the Soul: Ideology in Xi Jinping's China by John Garnaut
I want to make these broad points about the historical foundations of CCP ideology, beyond the fact that it is important: 

Communism did not enjoy an immaculate conception in China. Rather, it was grafted onto an existing ideological system - the classical Chinese dynastic system. 
China had an unusual veneration for the written word and acceptance of its didactic value.
Marxism-Leninism was interpreted to Mao and his fellow revolutionaries by a crucial intermediary: Joseph Stalin. 
Communism - as interpreted by Lenin, Stalin and Mao - is a total ideology. At the risk of being politically insensitive, it is totalitarian. 
Xi Jinping has reinvigorated ideology to an extent we have not seen since the Cultural Revolution.
