Summary "To what extent has China embraced human resource management in the Western sense? This new book investigates this and many other important and controversial questions whilst examining human resource management, work and employment in China and the changing nature of these vital elements of society and business." "Fang Lee Cooke addresses a number of thematic issues such as the growing inequality in employment, public sector reforms, pay systems, vocational training and small private businesses. These themes are developed through a combination of rigorous empirical research and secondary data analysis which explores the distinct incentives and pressures facing different sectors and ownership forms in shaping their human resource strategies. The book offers an invaluable insight into the workings of the political, social, economic and business dimensions of Chinese society. The author also draws attention to the considerable similarity in the problems faced by both China and the developed economies in an increasingly globalised economic environment which will prove essential reading for all those studying or with an interest in human resource management, employment relations, international business or Asian studies."--BOOK JACKET.00000
