Asian Management Systems is the only text on the market that specifically addresses the Asian style of management in a comparative, country context. The text examines the four main management systems in the East Asian region: Japanese, mainland Chinese, Overseas Chinese and Korean, and compares and contrasts the management styles within Asia and with the western world. Through a comparative analysis of organizational structures, competitive strategies and cultural influences, the workings of each system are made clear. Practical guidelines make this book a vital guide for international executives and students alike. The new edition has been updated and covers the Tiger economies before and since the crash. It also looks at the rise of Islam as a force in Asian business and examines China's new role as a quasi-capitalist economic system within a communist political system. This is the core text for all students of Asian business and for all academics with a lively interest in international business.
