Contents:
Acknowledgments; Abbreviations and Acronyms; Introduction: China and the Market Model of Labor Relations; 1 Exploring Market Labor Relations in a Global Context; 2 Nonmarket Labor Relations in China; 3 The Causes of Labor Disputes in Contemporary China; 4 The Resolution of Labor Disputes; 5 Winners and Losers: The Outcomes of Labor Disputes; 6 Toward a Global Market Model; Bibliography; Index.
Summary: Ideological and cultural factors do not define or influence the way labor relations are conducted in China's workplace, as many suppose they do. Oakley shows that the impact of the global market has significantly altered the way labor relations are actually practiced in China, which follows what she calls a global market paradigm. Nevertheless, Maoism and Confucianism continue to influence labor relations in China, and the ideological and cultural remnants still to be found could affect China's relations with other nations for years to come. Instead of taking a macro-level, industrial-relation.
