About the Author:

David Faure is University Lecturer in Modern Chinese History and Fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford; and currently Professor of History at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Review:

This small book is a tour de force. In remarkably brief compass, David Faure identifies and addresses key issues in Chinese business history between 1500 and the present. For China specialists, he sets a research agenda covering five centuries, and for business historians outside the China field, he provides a sweeping synthesis that includes tantalizing comparisons between China and the West. (Sherman Cochran, Hu Shih Professor of History, Cornell University)
