Chinese Workers: A New History (Routledge Studies in the Modern History of Asia)

Jackie Sheehan


Jackie Sheehan strains the historical past and improvement of staff clashes with the chinese language Communist get together via mass campaigns akin to the 1956-7 Hundred plant life flow, the Cultural Revolution, the April 5th stream of 1976, Democracy Wall and the 1989 Democracy stream. the writer offers the main targeted and whole photo of employees protest in China so far and locates their place in the context of chinese language political historical past. Chinese Workers demonstrates that a dead ringer for chinese language staff as politically conformist and trustworthy supporters of the Communist celebration doesn't fit the realities of commercial existence in China. fresh outbreaks of protest through employees are much less of a departure from the previous than is usually learned.
