Our understanding of management in Asia has not kept pace with the demands of managers and students. The Handbook of Asian Management provides in-depth critical reviews of central topics in strategy and organizational behavior research in Asian contexts. Leading scholars take stock of what has been learned and give clear directions towards greater rigor and relevance for research in this region.
"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)
"In this volume, Leung and White have assembled a vast set of contributors who exemplify the complexity and importance of studying management from an Asian perspective. The book reads like a Who's-Who of top-notch research scholars and people in areas including Human Resources, Organizational Behavior and Strategy will all benefit by having this volume on their bookshelf. Additionally, any serious student of Asian Management will consider this book to be one of their core treatises." (P. Christopher Earley, Chair, Dept. of Organisational Behaviour, London Business School)
"A landmark volume that offers a wide-ranging view of Asian business, especially in the areas of strategy, organizational behavior and human resource management. Americans, Europeans and others will find here new, useful ideas. A must for everyone interested in leading-edge managerial practices and in the future evolution of the global economy."
