12 The Essential Entrepreneur This chapter explores certain strategies for dealing with the dynamic features of a political contest.

8 Gangster Entrepreneur Du Yuesheng and the Shanghai Economy T h e growth in the power and influence of Du Yuesheng in the 1930s was accompanied by, and inseparable from, the expansion of his economic interests.

The benefit programs had come about in response to restiveness among voters, particularly among the growing ranks of the elderly, who feared that they would

chapter 6 Families and Entrepreneurs 121 In 1969, S. H. Franklin wrote an influential book on the European coun- tryside titled The European Peasantry. Its subtitle captured the sense of the times—The Final Phase. Indeed, in his final chapter Franklin evokes the idea of the few rural smallholders left in the countryside becoming little more than park keepers, preserving the landscape for the urban folk who rush by on weekends and holidays.
