       Emerging Trends in Chinese Market Socialism Chapter 
       Synopsis: Chapter 1: Chinese Market Socialism - A Summary 
       Account In this chapter, we review the historical legacy 
       and characteristics in the development of market socialism
       in China and examine the general environment within which 
       economic enterprises operate: the economic, political and 
       institutional systems. It defines the concept of market 
       socialism and describes the major influences on the 
       development of market socialism, such as economic and 
       institutional reforms, privatization, WTO accession and 
       the impact of foreign direct investment. A summary account
       for the formation of market socialism is presented in this
       chapter. Chapter 2: Entrepreneurial Growth and Ownership 
       This chapter explains entrepreneurship, privatization, 
       ownership and government policies in relation to 
       institutional change in China's economic transition. The 
       focus is on emerging forms of different types of business 
       ventures and the growth of entrepreneurialism under market
       socialism. Changing and contrasting management practices 
       are discussed under the two periods of 'state' and 
       'market' socialism. The evolution of economic enterprises 
       in China is examined in this historical context because 
       this legacy has shaped many of the present features of 
       management practices in present-day China. Chapter 3: 
       Management Theory and Practice in the Chinese Context 
       Chinese management theory and research is an emergent 
       process, the outcome of which is difficult to predict. 
       Most of the established theories that are applied to the 
       Chinese context have been developed in a western context 
       and, therefore, are not entirely relevant. In this chapter,
       we highlight the key issues associated with contemporary 
       Chinese management thinking and practice in relation to 
       business growth. Relevant management practices are 
       discussed by reference to different organizational 
       contexts and ownership forms. These are state-owned 
       enterprises, privately-owned enterprises and foreign joint
       ventures. Chapter 4: The Contradictions of State-owned 
       Enterprises State-owned enterprises (SOEs) are also 
       undergoing management restructuring, corporatization and 
       ownership diversification. The reform of state-owned 
       enterprises has long been restricted by the Communist 
       Party's socialist ideology, but, even so, they have 
       undergone various reforms aimed at improving management 
       efficiency and injecting entrepreneurialism into their 
       organizational development under market socialism. We 
       discuss these issues by reference to a case study of a 
       state-owned enterprise. Chapter 5: The Emergence of 
       Privately Owned Enterprises One of the striking features 
       of China's economic reforms - transforming from a command 
       to a socialist market economy - is the rise of the 
       entrepreneurial sector. The rapid growth of privately 
       owned enterprises has become a driving force for the 
       Chinese economy, as well as a dominant ownership form in 
       the economy. These private enterprises are organized in 
       very informal ways because of how they have emerged from 
       the shadow of the state-owned economy. Their distinctive 
       management practice and strategies are discussed by 
       reference to a detailed case study. Chapter 6: The Impact 
       of Foreign Joint Ventures Foreign investment, as a salient
       constitution of the Chinese economy, plays an increasingly
       substantial role in market transformation. Foreign joint-
       ventures are major employers in China and, as a result, 
       their employment policies and management practices have a 
       strong bearing on reshaping the pool of human resources 
       and the experience of work for a significant proportion of
       workers in China. Their capabilities are based upon a 
       combination of local skills and knowledge with foreign-
       imported technologies and advanced management practices. 
       These issues are discussed by reference to a case study of
       a foreign joint-venture. Chapter 7: Case Studies: State-
       owned enterprise LTG, privately owned enterprise DAL and 
       foreign joint-venture DSF This chapter compares and 
       analyses the distinctive characteristics of these three 
       emerging business types under the conditions of emerging 
       market socialism. These case studies - a state-owned 
       enterprise, a privately owned enterprise and a foreign 
       joint venture - offer organizational profiles of how each 
       form of ownership shapes their distinctive organizational 
       and management practices. They also create challenges and 
       tensions in each type of venture that are likely to shape 
       future trends in the nature of Chinese market socialism. 
       Chapter 8: Emerging Trends in Chinese Market Socialism 
       Market socialism comprises both opportunities and problems,
       which generate complexity and diversity in its unique 
       institutional characteristics. The chapter offers insights
       into the contrasting roles of different types of business 
       venture in shaping the nature of market socialism. It 
       addresses the challenges and emerging issues that the 
       Communist Party must address in further developing a 
       globally focused transitional economy. China's global 
       transformation from 'copycat' to world-class 'innovator' 
       is discussed, as well as the implications of this for 
       future institutional change in what is rapidly becoming 
       the world's largest, fastest growing economy.
