Red Capitalists in China: The Party, Private Entrepreneurs, and Prospects for Political Changeby Bruce J. Dickson
Pub. Date: 01/20/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Viewing the evolving relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and private entrepreneurs, this book examines the implications of recruiting entrepreneurs into the communist party. It has given rise to the label of "red capitalists." Although many foreign observers expect economic change to lead inevitably to political change in China, this book reveals that China's entrepreneurs are willing partners with the state; not an autonomous force in opposition to the state.
