Even seasoned travelers need a guide book in Asia. Similarly, managers need a guide book to do business in Asia given its size and diversity. This is that book. Using a systems approach, Professors Hasegawa and Noronha have put together a very useful and comprehensive overview for anyone doing business in Asia.' - Professor Aneel Karnani, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, US.
'This is an excellent, thoughtful text setting out clearly the complex and evolving business systems in Asian countries. The theoretical framework allows a very useful comparative institutional and systemic perspective that provides a solid understanding of Asian business, with all its contextual variations and formulation.' - Adrian Wilkinson, Professor and Director, Centre for Work, Organisation and Wellbeing, Griffith University
'This book provides a systematic, comprehensive, original and insightful analysis of business systems in Asia. The 'golden thread' that ties the analysis of these diverse systems together is Redding's acclaimed model of business systems. I commend this book both as a textbook for students of management in Asia and as an immensely helpful reference tool for managers doing business in the region.' - Bruce Stening, Professor of Management, Peking University, China
'This book provides a good introduction to Asian business written by experts in the subject. I would not have any reservations in adopting the textbook for an undergraduate or a graduate class' – Bob Terpstra, University of Monash, Australia
