Review:

Entrepreneurial and Business Elites of China: The Chinese Returnees Who Have Shaped Modern China provides up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of top overseas returnees who have made noteworthy contributions to the Chinese economy since the reform era began. These elites are the men and women who mattered, both in the early years when returnee migration was rare, and in recent years where it has become much more prominent. Understanding the stories of the entrepreneurial and business elites is an important step for understanding the international migration force overall. --Dr. William Kerr, Harvard Business School

This is a fascinating book for the general public and particularly for those who have a keen interest in business China. The information is current and the entries are at appropriate length, which are short enough to general readers but long enough to be comprehensive, providing adequate information on the individual entrepreneur and the field associated with him/her. Highly recommended for the public, but particularly for business students as well as professionals. --Mr. Haipeng Li, Executive Director, Chinese American Librarians Association; Chair, American Library Association IRC East Asia & Pacific Committee; Associate Director, John Cotton Dana Library, Rutgers University

Animal spirits are the basis of entrepreneurial economies such as China s and knowing more about the lives of successful businessmen is therefore crucial to understand that country s economy. By focusing more in particular on the role of talent circulation in the global economy, this book adds a very welcome perspective to the study of Chinese business elites. It is recommended reading to anybody interested in the Chinese economy and globalization. --Dr. Andrea Goldstein, Senior Economist, OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development); Consultant, the Inter-American Development Bank

This reference on the current elite entrepreneurs and business leaders of China focuses specifically on Chinese returnees who have made significant contributions to the country's economy since the origins of the reform era in 1978. For the purposes of the book, returnees are considered Chinese natives who left the country to study overseas as a student, visiting scholar, or researcher for more than a year and returned to China permanently. The more than 100 profiles provide brief biographies and outlines the returnees' professional careers and significant contributions to the new Chinese economy. The reference is a valuable research tool for students, librarians, business professionals, and others interested in China's major economic figures. It also includes a lengthy and helpful list of abbreviations. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Annotation ©2011 Book News Inc. Portland, OR
