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.
Although business in Asia has again become a global topic of interest, academic research on managment in Asia remains fragmented. The focus has been limited to specific countries, primarily Japan and more recently China. Researchers themselves have often limited their studies to particular countries rather than attemping cross-country comparisons within the region. As a result, there is no source that provides an integrated review of research on management in this context
The Handbook of Asian Management pushes the boundary of management knowledge as we know today and fills critical gaps in the global management literature
A valuable guide for future research, an essential reading for anyone interested in Asian Management from a scholarly point of view
