About the Book
Chinese entrepreneurship in a global era
/ edited by Raymond Sin-Kwok Wong
(Book Collection HB615 .C627 2008)
Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new businesses (or revitalizing old ones)
after identifying new circumstances or opportunities. In the past 20 or 30 years, there
has been a growing interest in the study of Chinese entrepreneurship. However,
much of this interest rarely goes beyond stereotypical ideas, common in magazines,
newspapers, and television news.
In this work, Dr. Wong seeks to assemble research that go beyond the
stereotyped and "essentialized" ideas of Chinese entrepreneurs and Chinese
entrepreneurship, and " explore the possibility of a new breed
of Chinese entrepreneurs in the making".
