Subtitled - Institutions, Culture, and the Changing Nature of Guanxi
Guanxi, loosely translated as "social connections," or "social networks," is among the most important, talked about, and studied phenomena in China today. Guanxi lies at the heart of China's social order, its economic structure, and its changing institutional landscape. It is considered important in most every realm of life, from politics to business, and from officialdom to street life. This volume offers the latest scholarly thinking on the subject by top China sociologists whose work on guanxi has been influential and by new scholars offering cutting-edge insights on the topic.
Cambridge paperback in very good condition. The book has signs of reading and shelf wear, some very minor scuffing to the edges and a couple of spots on the inside of the front cover.
