A revealing account of how business in Asia really works.
The recent downturn in the Asian economies has been blamed on a number of factors. In this controversial, eye-opening book, Michael Backman analyzes a number of dubious business practices that are endemic in the region and which he believes have played a significant part in Asia's downfall. Along with an in-depth examination of such troubling symptoms as widespread cronyism and inadequate legal protection, Asian Eclipse includes chapters on the unique business environments of Japan, China, and Indonesia, as well as lucid explanations on how outside investors should approach the new Asian markets.
