A unique account of labor relations in the modern Chinese economy, Beyond the Iron Rice Bowl brings together more than thirty in-depth case studies of key multinational, Chinese, and overseas Chinese enterprises in the automotive, electronic, and garment industries. Analyzing the regimes of production and their segmentations in the context of global and national production networks, the authors discuss Chinese and international industrial relations theory and labor sociology and explore the perspectives of collective bargaining, trade union reform, and democratic workplace representation in China. 
Bill Taylor, City University of Hong Kong | China Journal
“Sets an ambitious agenda of explaining the management and organization of work in over thirty manufacturing plants within three major economic sectors (automobiles, electronics, and textiles) spread across much of (mainly) eastern China. . . . Beyond the Iron Rice Bowl is interesting, with lots of data and interesting details, contextualized within industry- and country-specific analysis.”
