The rapidly changing market environment in China requires more research to understand fully the empirical processes of management practice and the business landscape in which they operate.

Based on longitudinal case study research between 2005 and 2010, this book explores the distinctive characteristics of emerging forms of economic enterprise under market socialism in China. Adopting a holistic view, it explores how rapid environmental and institutional changes in economic reforms are impacting upon their practice, and assesses the role of government policy in shaping their ownership and management processes. Through the changing patterns in the development of business ventures, it outlines the dynamics of industrial and organizational change under the transitional phases of a market socialist economy, and explores the tensions which emerge.

This comparative perspective will be of interest to academics, researchers and advanced students of business growth and enterprise management, particularly those wishing to explore China, Chinese business and emerging economies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
China impacts the world - yet there's a shortage of insight into how the Chinese run business. This book helps fill the gap - detailed case studies provide rich insight into different patterns of management in distinctive business contexts. A valuable contribution to our understanding of emerging forms of enterprise within market socialism.

Rob Goffee, Emeritus Professor, London Business School, UK

This new volume is an important addition to the growing literature on entrepreneurship in emerging market economies. The authors are established experts in the field with a record of critical perspectives on public policy, it also makes for a very good read. I strongly recommend it.

David Smallbone, Professor, Kingston University, UK

This book describes how entrepreneurship has been evolving in China in both the state and private sectors, despite traditional enterprise theories stating that new business ventures shouldn't flourish because of administrative burdens. Understanding the dynamics of industrial and organisational change in this emerging economy context is important, not just to correct misunderstandings for western firms and managers who wish to learn about the strategies and management processes required to secure a successful entry to China and its market, but also to improve our wider understanding of entrepreneurship and the conditions which can encourage and sustain it.

Simon Bridge, Visiting Professor, Ulster Business School, UK

China is the new land of business opportunity but, for outsiders, it can be a perilous mission as they seek to understand and navigate the multitude of different types of business structure that comprise modern market socialism. This book is essential for anyone wanting to do business with, or understand the more subtle workings of, Chinese business as its written by authors who are not just leading authorities in the area but have also been successful entrepreneurs in both China and the West, which gives it a unique insight and gravitas that sets this book apart from other texts.

Victor Callaghan, Professor, University of Essex, UK

This book provides vivid case studies about institutional changes under market socialism in China. By showing empirical processes of how state-owned enterprises and privately owned enterprises function in China, the authors fill a significant gap in the entrepreneurship literature about China. This book has relevant examples of Chinese business, which makes it accessible to managers and students at different levels. Given the significance of China's economy to the world, this book makes a timely contribution.

Teck Yong Eng, Professor, University of Southampton, UK
