Wealth into power : the Communist Party's embrace of China's private sector by Bruce J Dickson( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Wealth and Power in Contemporary China, Bruce Dickson challenges the notion that economic development is leading to political change in China, or that China's private entrepreneurs are helping to promote democratization. Instead, they have become partners with the ruling Chinese Communist Party to promote economic growth while maintaining the political status quo. Dickson's research illuminates the Communist Party's strategy for incorporating China's capitalists into the political system and how the shared interests, personal ties, and common views of the party and the private sector are creating a form of "crony communism." Rather than being potential agents of change, China's entrepreneurs may prove to be a key source of support for the party's agenda. Based on years of research and original survey data, this book will be of interest to all those interested in China's political future and in the relationship between economic wealth and political power
Allies of the state : China's private entrepreneurs and democratic change by Jie Chen( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jie Chen and Bruce Dickson draw on extensive fieldwork as they explore the extent to which China's private sector supports democracy, surveying more than 2,000 entrepreneurs in five coastal provinces with over 70 per cent of China's private enterprises. The authors examine who the private entrepreneurs are, how the party-state shapes this group, and what their relationship to the state is. China's entrepreneurs are closely tied to the state through political and financial relationships, and these ties shape their views toward democracy. While most entrepreneurs favor multi-candidate elections under the current one-party system, they do not support a system characterized by multi-party competition and political liberties, including the right to demonstrate. The key to regime support lies in the capitalists' political beliefs and their assessment of the government's policy performance. China's capitalists tend to be conservative and status-quo oriented, not likely to serve as agents of democratization. This is a valuable contribution not only to the debates over the prospects for democracy in China but also to understanding the process of democratization around the globe

A case study of coordinated resource management programs at selected Department of Defense installations by Bruce J Dickson( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Legacy Resource Management Program, created after Congressional passage of the Defense Appropriations Act of 1991, requires a comprehensive, integrated resource management program for Department of Defense (DoD) installations and properties. To help meet the goals of the Legacy Program, researchers conducted an assessment of current resource programs. Objectives of this phase of the research were to (1) identify instances where natural resource and cultural resource programs have succeeded in coordinating management activities and (2) determine properties and processes that foster coordinated resource management. To meet these objectives, researchers conducted case studies of seven exemplary installations/activities. The studies showed that understaffing, particularly for cultural resources management, is a universal problem; a qualified, committed staff is considered the most important factor is establishing and maintaining a successful resources program. Inadequate funding does not inhibit coordination and project review between cultural and natural resources staffs, but it has prevented many installations from developing complete resource inventories. Strong command support and accurate information from installation resource inventories were also identified as critical factors in successful resource management
