Chinese Labour in the Global Economy: a New Book Edited by Andreas Bieler and Chun-Yi Lee

Bieler, Andreas and Chun-Yi Lee (eds.) (2017) Chinese Labour in the Global Economy: Capitalist Exploitation and Strategies of Resistance. London: Routledge. pp.1-161.

Publisher's summary: Set against the background of China’s integration into the global economy along uneven and combined development lines, this volume explores new forms of resistance by Chinese workers, be it through the state trade union All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) or through informal labour NGOs. It also analyses the links between Chinese formal and informal labour organisations, with labour organisations outside China.
