About This Book

Ethnic Chinese businesses have often played an important role in economies of Southeast Asia, so much so that the business organization and practices of these firms have been seen as one of the causes of the Asian economic crisis of 1997. This book critically examines some of the key features attributed to Chinese business: business-government relations, the family firm, trust and networks, and supposedly "Asian" values. The in-depth case studies that feature in this book reveal considerable diversity among these firms and the economic and political networks in which they manoeuvre.
