Viewing the evolving relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and private entrepreneurs, this book examines the implications of recruiting entrepreneurs into the communist party. It has given rise to the label of "red capitalists." Although many foreign observers expect economic change to lead inevitably to political change in China, this book reveals that China's entrepreneurs are willing partners with the state; not an autonomous force in opposition to the state.


1. Introduction; 2. Challenges of party building in the reform era; 3. New institutional links; Appendix: survey design and implementation; 4. The politics of cooptation; 5. The political beliefs and behaviors of China's red capitalists; Appendix: multivariate analyses of political beliefs of officials and entrepreneurs; 6. Conclusion.
