Summary This book investigates the causes and socio-economic effects of foreign direct investment in the Dongguan municipality of southern China during the 1990s. Based on comprehensive quantitative and qualitative research, it illustrates that the inflow of of foreign capital has both "desirable" and "undesirable" socio-economic effects. Yeung proposes a new "dynamic symbiosis" paradigm of foreign direct investment in order to illuminate the complex political and socio-economic relationships of the area.
