"This book is important and timely, the first to provide a comprehensive coverage of the latest thinking and research on management in the Asian context. It offers new insights and stimulating perspectives on an extraordinarily complex region in terms of economic and political systems as well as social and cultural heritages. The articles in this Handbook cover a wide range of topics at both the firm and individual levels. They push the boundary of management knowledge as we know today and fill critical gaps in the global management literature. It is a valuable guide for future research, an essential reading for anyone interested in Asian Management from a scholarly point of view."
(Anne S. Tsui, Arizona State University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, International Association for Chinese Management Research, Management and Organization Review)

Christopher Earley, Chair, Dept. of Organisational Behaviour, London Business School)
