Narratives of the Chinese Economic Reforms
Individual Pathways from Plan to Market
This book is a collection of stories telling how seven Chinese individuals navigated their personal transitions during the Chinese state's shift from a state-managed and state-owned, planned socialist economy to one primarily driven by market forces. No other book available illustrates China's market transition through a focus on specific, real individuals as this one does.

What Reviewers Are Saying
"This is an aspiring and timely book, helping to narrate the ongoing social transformation of Chinese society from socialist system to market economy from a plurality of ordinary lives... The thickness and richness of the stories told in this edited volume outshine many scholarly works in the area which only focus on macro and quantitative analysis with a broad stroke..." - Professor Pun Ngai, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology"
