Red Capitalists in China by Bruce J. Dickson
Book DescriptionIt has become a truism that continued economic reform in China will contribute to political change. Policy makers as well as many scholars expect that formation of a private sector will lead, directly or indirectly through the emergence of a civil society, to political change and ultimately democratization. The rapidly growing numbers of private entrepreneurs, the formation of business associations, and the cooperative relationships between entrepreneurs and local officials are seen as initial indicators of a transition from China's still nominally communist political system. This book, first published in 2003, focuses on two related issues: whether the Chinese Communist Party is willing and able to adapt to the economic environment its reforms are bringing about, and whether China's 'red capitalists', private entrepreneurs who also belong to the communist party, are likely to be agents of political change.

Allies of the State, Hardback (June 2010)
Exploring the extent to which China's private sector supports democracy, this title examines who the private entrepreneurs are, how the party-state shapes this group, and what their relationship to the state is. It provides an understanding the process of democratization around the globe.
Wealth into Power, Hardback (July 2008)
Dickson argues that, rather than promoting democratization, China's entrepreneurs offer key support for the Communist Party's agenda.
