Description

'Well-being' is a contemporary term used by people around the globe to address how comfortable their lives are.

The notion is considered significant to business management.

Nevertheless, is well-being significant to Chinese family business?

In response to this inquiry, this book demystifies the notion from a critical lens.

It examines well-being in a Chinese family business context of Hong Kong. This book consists of an archaeological and anthropological examination.

The first part of the analysis draws from Foucault's (1979) Archaeology of Knowledge to examine the discursive (trans)formation of well-being.

The second part is an ethnography that focuses on a Chinese perspective regarding the everydayness of life. In light of the recent social movements, this book not only offers an insight into the core values of Hong Kongers, but also dissects various layers of meaning in these values.

Hopefully, this book can lift up the voices of Hong Kongers, who was once marginalised in the discourse of well-being.
