China has already become the world's third largest economic power, and it currently presents enormous business opportunities. Yet there is still a dearth of information in the West about how Chinese firms are run. In this invaluable book, Professor Child addresses this lack, examining management in China in all its different aspects. He covers the development of Chinese management during the period of economic reform in a number of areas including enterprise leadership, decision making, the management of marketing and purchasing transactions, the work roles of senior managers, personnel practices and reward systems. The experience of foreign firms entering joint ventures with Chinese enterprises is also reviewed in detail. The book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the subject, written on the basis of field work and direct contacts which the author has with Chinese enterprises.

Industry Reviews

'This book will be valuable to foreign investors ... the quality of the commentary within the chapters and especially the final exploratory chapter set it well above most works on management in China.' China Quarterly ' ... adds an important piece to the jigsaw of our understanding of management in China and is a significant contribution to the literature.' Journal of Management Studies 'Professor Child has produced a pioneering study in a setting where managerial issues remain politically sensitive. It is necessary reading for those manufacturers and investors targeting China's burgeoning domestic markets.' Asian Affairs
