Engaging, candid, and at times amusing, Collaborative Damage makes
an insightful as well as a delightful read.
The book aptly captures the social dynamics characteristic of Chinese investment and the inherent contradictions of transnational capitalism.In short, this book contributes a reflexive, insightful and gripping account of the practices and effects of Chinese extraversion.
Collaborative Damage provides a distinctive approach both to the study of a controversial global phenome- non and to the practice of ethnographic writing.
