Based on a case-study carried out in the southern city of Guangzhou in China, the book describes in compelling detail the dramatic changes occurring at a large state-owned enterprise as this socialist country undergoes market transition.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Starting in the 1950s, China developed a system of occupational welfare which provided comprehensive 'from cradle to grave' benefits and services to state-sector employees. Millions of these workers and their families depended on their work-units for health insurance, retirement pensions, housing, various kinds of subsidies both in cash and in kind, various collective facilities and services such as nurseries, canteens, clinics, bathing facilities, and, in large units, schools and hospitals. This book explains the origins and nature of this unique system of welfare, and, based on a detailed case-study of a large, industrial, state-owned enterprise located in the southern city of Guangzhou, describes the changes that have led to the dismantling of the `iron rice bowl', the transformation of the socialist work-unit and the life of its members, and the creation of a model of welfare pluralism with unique characteristics. These changes have important implications for citizenship rights, family solidarity and state-society relations in China today.

Critique:

'As the Chinese welfare system undergoes an historic transformation, Professor Lee's fascinating book will be essential reading for social policy scholars everywhere. It has important lessons for the future of social policy.' - James Midgley, Specht Professor and Dean, School of Social Welfare, University of California at Berkeley

'The first full-length account of the development of enterprise-based welfare in China since 1980. Dr Lee skilfully integrates the profound national economic and social reforms with a case-study of the responses of a large machine works and the creative adaptation of workers and their families. An original interpretation of a critical shift in social provision in China.' - Professor Ian Gough, University of Bath
