Summary
  • "How China Works examines the importance of labor issues by charting the changes in the Chinese workplace and the impact these have had on the future of China's economic and political system." "Drawing on original fieldwork and archival research, the book presents eight key case studies that look at the micropolitics of the workplace and the globalization of production, illustrating labor relations within a range of industries across all regions of China."
  • "The book approaches the subject area from a multidisciplinary angle, introducing concepts from labor history, politics, sociology and anthropology in the China field. The contributors argue that the understanding of work in China has been overly politicized and state-centered, and instead suggest a method of study that is grounded in workplace cultures and labor processes. How China Works provides a timely and topical addition to the current literature that will appeal to China academics in a wide range of social science disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
