Employing a longitudinal, mixed-method research design, we examine how variations in the imprinting processes of three political eras spawned different contemporary understandings of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in China. As an authoritative regime, China provides an illuminating counterpoint to studies from Western capitalist contexts – which tend to emphasize highly agentic processes wherein entrepreneurial individuals creatively navigate, and selectively acquire resources from, their external environments. Such depictions are complicated in the Chinese context because of the presence of the Communist Party of China, whose influence permeates every facet of society. Our comparative examination revealed important differences in how the regimes mobilized and regulated emotions in support of political objectives and institutional projects. By articulating these differences, our study provides theoretical leverage for explaining why certain imprints may be more resilient than others.
