  1. The Silicon Dragon

    The Silicon Dragon

    Terence Tsai, Bor-Shiuan Cheng
    The Silicon Dragon is a systematic study of the growth of high-tech giants in the Greater China Region, depicting the success story of the microelectronics industry in Taiwan. The book examines the government policies that acted as catalysts to the growth of high-tech industries in Taiwan, along with the roles of high-tech ‘incubators’ and government-administered science parks. The authors provide case studies of high profile companies including Acer, Philips Semiconductors and Macronix International, and interviews with key decision makers to highlight the corporate strategies adopted in response to government policies and global commercial demand. Finally, insightful narratives on the birth and growth of a government-fostered strategic industry are provided, as is a synopsis of the Asian contribution to the evolution of the global microelectronics development.

    Growth of New Technology Ventures in China’s Emerging Market

    Edited by Haiyang Li
    New ventures have played a significant role in the world’s economic and social development.

With a focus on new technology ventures in China’s emerging market, this volume brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines and countries to provide a comprehensive understanding of this phenomenon.

  3. Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Reforming China’s State-owned Enterprises and Banks

    Becky Chiu, Mervyn K. Lewis
    This book’s starting point is that after two decades of experiments, during which other transition economies have effectively privatised all of their former state enterprises, China is still endeavouring to find a way to reinvent and re-engineer its own state-owned economic establishments. The authors explore these reforms along with the problems of China’s state-owned banks, which have long been troubled by the adverse loans of Chinese enterprises and face foreign competition in 2007 under China’s WTO commitments. Drawing on wide-ranging case studies of enterprise reform, Becky Chiu and Mervyn Lewis combine their extensive experience to give an authoritative account of China’s enterprise and bank reform agenda, involving property rights, improved corporate governance and stimulating enterprise.

  4. China’s Offshore Investments

    China’s Offshore Investments

    Dexin Yang
    Presenting a thorough analysis of China’s outward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the last quarter of a century – something little explored in the literature – this book explores the rationale behind its emergence and development. China’s outward FDI exhibits unique features in respect of timing, pace and geographical distribution that defy the existing mainstream theories of FDI. China’s Offshore Investments uses the framework of a network model of FDI, which is developed by applying economic norms to ideas of networks in business analysis. This network model has been designed specifically by Dexin Yang for the purpose of theorising the changing pattern of FDI in the era of globalisation in general and interpreting China’s FDI in particular.

  6. Transformational CEOs

    Transformational CEOs

    Kimio Kase, Francisco J. Sáez-Martínez, Hernán Riquelme
    Transformational CEOs questions why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed – regardless of the burst of the ‘bubble’ economy, a number of Japanese companies have maintained or extended their international leadership in particular sectors. The authors argue that whilst some of the reasons for successes are plain common sense – operational effectiveness and superior CEO leadership – some are Japan-specific and point to a break with traditional leadership rationale.

    Competition and Corporate Governance in Korea

    Edited by Sung-Hee Jwa, In K. Lee
    Competition and Corporate Governance in Korea critically reviews government policy towards the chaebol and provides a comprehensive investigation of the relationship between corporate governance and economic performance as well as the interaction of economic institutions with the chaebols’ incentive structure and management behaviour. Policy implications based on objective and rigorous empirical analyses of data on the chaebol are also discussed. Notwithstanding the fact that the chaebol have already undergone considerable governance, capital, and business portfolio restructuring, this volume suggests a road map for further restructuring, and the creation of a new incentive structure to help strengthen chaebol competitiveness.

    Globalization and Marketization in Education

    Ka-Ho Mok, Jason Tan
    Globalization has effected tremendous change to the character and functions of education worldwide. This unique book focuses on its impact upon Hong Kong and Singapore, and how these two East Asian Tigers have responded to the strong global tide of marketization in shaping and developing their education policies. The authors discuss the way in which increasingly prominent tides of marketization, privatization, corporatization and decentralization have influenced the governance and management of education in these two Asian economies. They aim to identify and examine the crucial socio-historical, socio-economic and socio-political factors for education reforms initiated in the two societies in recent years. Learn More

  13. Industrial Relations in China

    Industrial Relations in China

    Bill Taylor, Kai Chang, Qi Li
    This enlightening book provides the first systematic introduction to, and exploration of, the emerging system of industrial relations in China, and draws on the authors’ extensive research and direct involvement in the developments taking place. The authors argue that there are both unifying and fragmenting elements to the ongoing development of industrial relations, but overall it is one in which the state continues to maintain a major, and direct, influence. Divisions between workers and managers may be escalating with increased open conflicts, but this book reveals that the picture is far more complex and contradictory than to assume that the solution is convergence with western style industrial relations systems. They conclude that industrial relations institutions and processes still act within a political context and with the guiding hand of the Chinese Communist party. Learn More

  17. China and its Regions

    China and its Regions

    Edited by Mary-Françoise Renard

This increased economic openness has been accompanied by profound changes in both economic organisation and regional disparity. This comprehensive book focuses on the link between these economic reforms and the causes – and ultimately the implications – of regional inequalities in the most populous country in the world.

  20. Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Entrepreneurship and the Internationalisation of Asian Firms

    Henry Wai-chung Yeung
    This book applies an institutional perspective on transnational entrepreneurship to empirical investigations of transnational corporations (TNCs) from Hong Kong and Singapore. Henry Wai-chung Yeung argues that significant variations in institutional structures of home countries explain variations in the entrepreneurial endowments of prospective transnational business networks. This is illustrated by empirical data from two in-depth studies of over 300 TNCs from Hong Kong and Singapore and over 120 of their foreign affiliates in Asia. Learn More
