Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The origins of the "iron rice bowl" of comprehensive cradle-to-grave benefits and lifetime employment in Chinese factories is traced in this book. It suggests that, in some ways, the Chinese revolution in 1949 was not as revolutionary as most have thought. This is one of a very few books to look comparatively at the Chinese industrial workplace in pre-1949 China and post-1949 China. Frazier has mined sources that were unavailable to previous generations of researchers on China.

Book News Annotation:

Frazier (political economy of East Asia, Lawrence U.) traces the development of the Chinese institution of the danwei (or "work unit") in the state sector workforce in the decades before and after the 1949 Communist Revolution. He argues that the formation of the danwei was a process, not an event. The danwei was comprised of distinct institutions of rules and norms for how workers would be hired, organized, and compensated. These institutions emerged on a contested field, in which industry management, workers, and state officials, in conflict and coalition, competed in influencing the formation of work processes.
