Description

A study of authority and human relations in Chinese urban organizations before and after Mao's era. The empirically-based analysis shows how fundamental changes took place in social relations and the form of authorities since the end of the cultural revolution. It illustrates how quasi-charismatic patterns of authority under Mao have given way to practices and relationships that recall much older patrimonial authority relations at the micro-level, while the party domination nevertheless continues to prevail politically at the macro-level.

Contents

Work units, Cadre system, and emergence of neo-patrimonialism; the ten-city interview (getting higher education, changing jobs, getting houses, travelling with state funds, going abroad, collective corruption); case study one - the motor vehicle department; case study two - the finance bureau; neo-patrimonialism as a consequence of Mao's political campaigns; from totalitarianism to neo-patrimonialism. Appendices: methodology notes; ten city interview questionnaire (English translation).
