Book Description

This book analyzes credit crisis issues in China from the aspect of individuals, enterprises, and government through investigations of six Chinese urban and rural areas.

After China’s Reform and Opening Up in the 1970s, a slew of new problems involving integrity, trust, and credit appeared with the establishment of a market economy and the creation of new business opportunities. To track these phenomena down to their very origins and to explore the theoretical principles underlying them through a truly holistic sociology, this book highlights a native Chinese perspective when dissecting and analyzing the characteristics of their origins, mechanisms, and manifestations.
The book will be of great interest to students and scholars of economic sociology, Chinese studies and those who are interested in the sociology of credibility in general.
