Beyond the Rong Model

(p.140) Chapter 7 Textile and Consumer Industries in the War Era
Chinese Capitalists in Japan's New Order

Parks M. Coble

University of California Press

This chapter describes the experiences of the textile and consumer industries in China during the Sino-Japanese War. It suggests that while most firms were smaller than the Rong family business, they demonstrated some of the same patterns of the Rong experience. The chapter contends that the nature of Chinese business firms conditioned the response to war, and that most industrialists placed survival of the firm and the family ahead of abstract concepts of nationalism.

Keywords:   textile industries, consumer industries, China, Sino-Japanese War, Rong family business, industrialists, nationalism, family
