Book Description

The ability of China's entrepreneurs to establish firms in the midst of a strangling bureaucratic system is a topic which demands attention not least because it forms the basis of China's economic development. Combining theoretical approaches with extensive fieldwork, China's Rational Entrepreneurs presents a fresh angle of analysis for understanding the behaviour of Chinese entrepreneurs and what kind of relations they have with local government in order to secure long-term business success.

Reviews

'This is a salutary and successful analysis, in which theory is founded upon research.' - China Perspectives

'This volume is an excellent contribution to the study of the Chinese private sector and it will provide an indispensable baseline for future efforts in this field.' - The China Journal
