- The social transformation by which socialist owner workers tum into capitalist wage workers is historically unprecedented and thus requires an entirely new line of historical and theoretical explanation. In this paper, I conceptualize this social transformation as reverse proletarianization, as opposed to the Marxist historical project of transforming capitalist proletariat into socialist proletariat through class revolution. Reverse proletarianization in China is a complex and multi-faceted process in which different ownership structures, management strategies, and regional locations of industrial enterprises ramify diverse patterns of worker experiences, reactions, and attitudes concerning labor reform. I discuss such complexity of China"s reverse proletarianization mainly by examining data from field research in Shandong and Hubei.
