About this product
- DescriptionThis study examines a small group of highly educated Chinese who have exerted outsized influence on China's recent rise. They share one thing in common - they all left China to study in the US and subsequently returned to China to apply what they had learned. Their work has in some ways made China more like the US. But more importantly, in adapting overseas practices to the Chinese context, they have t simply imitated or duplicated that which already exists abroad. Instead, they have invented something entirely vel, something that resides at the very heart of China's contemporary developmental experience. Based on extensive interview data collected by the author, these personal accounts open a window on the day-to-day struggles-and step-by-step achievements-of China's most prominent social entrepreneurs and societal activists.
