Overview

China's coal industry is the largest in world in terms of both production and consumption, provides about 70% of the country's primary energy sources, and supports the world's largest steel industry. On the other hand, it faces a market surplus in coal, was the leading loss-maker of all industries in China, has had over three million redundancies, is plagued by huge financial difficulties and high accident rates, has suffered frequent demonstrations by coal workers, and is regulated by many unreasonable government policies. In short, says Rui (management, U. of Cambridge), it is a very good case study by which to investigate China's development policy. She considers state-owned and township-and-village-owned enterprises. Distributed in the US by Taylor and Francis. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
