Inhaltsangabe: Drawing on previously unknown primary sources in both Chinese and Russian, Deborah A. Kaple has written a powerful and absorbing account of the model of factory management and organization that the Chinese communists formulated in the 1949-1953 period. She reveals that their "new" management techniques were adapted from Soviet propaganda during the harsh period of Stalin's post-war reconstruction. The idealized Stalinist management system consisted mainly of strict Communist Party control of all aspects of workers' lives, which is the root of such strong Party control over Chinese society today. Dream of a Red Factory is a rare and revealing look at the consolidation rule in China; told through the prism of the development of new "socialist" factories and enterprises. Kaple completely counters the old myth of the "Soviet monolith" in China, and carefully reconstructs how the Chinese communists came to rely on an idealized, propagandistic version of the Soviet model instead.
Vom Verlag: Unprecedented in its comparative reach and its historical acumen, Dream of a Red Factory traces the roots of Chinese communist power to Stalin's last assault on the Soviet people, the period of post-war reconstruction. Kaple demonstrates, through a close reading of the Soviet texts that the Chinese translated, how the Chinese communists copied the techniques of this harsh period of Stalin's personality cult and oppressive communist party tactics. In pursuit of their three stated goals of socialist industrialization, socialization, and control, Chinese communists constructed and justified a factory management system that sought to control every aspect of workers' lives. Kaple reveals the techniques they used, including creating "mass" organizations in the factories, militarizing management rhetoric, submitting the workers to "re-education," and equating plan fulfillment with patriotism.
Dream of a Red Factory, the only recent historical account to use both Russian and Chinese primary sources, is unique in its use of post-1953 Soviet scholarship to illustrate points that have been neglected in earlier analyses of China. Historians and sociologists alike will find this comprehensive examination of Communist power in China invaluable.
