Product description


"Au's book represents a healthy dose of good scholarship and realism in the midst of a sea of celebratory and alarmist books on China's emergence on the global scene. His thesis that China's capitalism represents a type of 'bureaucratic capitalism' is both insightful and intriguing." --solidarity-us.org

"A fascinating analysis of contemporary struggles in China situated in a rich theoretical overview of Maoism and class relations, as well as the country's position in the international system. A powerful and provocative challenge to many misconceptions on the Left that deserves to be widely read and debated." --Adam Hanieh, editorial board member, "Historical Materialism" journal

"Au Loong Yu provides the most thorough account of the extent and nature of the transformation of the Chinese state into authoritarian capitalism. This book is essential reading for all those who seek to understand and grasp the dynamics of Chinese-style capitalism and working class resistance to the despotic system." --Immanuel Ness, editor, "International Encyclopedia of Revolution and Protest, 1500 to the Present"

"This collection of essays on China brings a rare and much needed perspective to the literature on the rising star of the global economy. Most are authored by Chinese Marxist critics of the regime. This 'insider' Marxist perspective translates into a discussion of issues rarely covered in the existing literature, including a special focus on the workers movement. Very useful." --Gilbert Achcar, professor, School of Oriental and African Studies in London
