Discussing a variety of issues rarely covered in existing literature, it demonstrates how China, a bureaucratic capitalist state, enjoys all the advantages of state capitalism in promoting both break-neck industrialization and in taking anti-cyclical measures in the midst of the current Great Recession. With a special focus on the workers movement, this compilation offers insight into the problems the Chinese currently face and anticipates future changes.
