Summary

This study opens a critical perspective on the slow death of socialism and the rebirth of capitalism in the world's most dynamic and populous country. Based on remarkable field-work and extensive interviews in Chinese textile, apparel, machinery, and household appliance factories, Against the Law finds a rising tide of labor unrest mostly hidden from the world's attention. Providing a broad political and economic analysis of this labor struggle together with fine-grained ethnographic detail, the book unfolds workers' stories in bankrupt state factories and global sweatshops, in crowded dormitories and remote villages, at street protests and in quiet disenchantment with a corrupt officialdom.
