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 book, Professor Child addresses this lack, examining management in China in all its different aspects.

The experience of foreign firms entering joint ventures with Chinese enterprise 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.
