    For anyone interested in the history of Chinese business, I thought I might share a recent essay that examines the past and present trajectories of the field and its relationship to the study of business in the West. The article is currently open-access and can be found at the following link:

    The unique positionality of the field is evidenced by the publication patterns of Chinese business history articles in mainstream business history journals. To illustrate this, I have conducted a comprehensive survey of Chinese business history articles (broadly construed as any article that engages substantively with business in greater China or with Chinese business abroad) published in the three leading business history journals- Business History Review (1926-present), Business History (1958-present), and Enterprise & Society (1999-present).
