From the Inside Flap
Asias Turning Point uses a multi-disciplinary approach, mixing economic analysis and business concepts. It covers topics that are important in all countries in the region such as labor markets, employment issues, entrepreneurship, innovation and financial problems, as well as a number of specific sub-regional issues.
Asias Turning Point is focused on Asias structural transformation at the beginning of the new century. The authors investigate far-reaching changes in government-business relations, corporate ownership, governance, management, labor relations, as well as the phenomena of new East Asian regionalism and prospects for the creation of the regional community. They argue that the dawn of the 21st century marks Asias turning point: the rise of a peculiar Asian model of capitalism inspired by the rise of Japan appears to be no longer feasible. Asias economic and business systems are Westernizing. More and more East and West are speaking the same business language. However, the Westernization is systemic, not cultural. The intrigue is that it is taking place within Asia-specific cultural and social contexts.
Asias Turning Point combines innovative concepts with lively descriptions of Asias economic, business and everyday life. Readers not only deepen their knowledge about the region, but also feel its flavor and pulse. It is a must for everyone engaged in international economy, business or Asian studies, and for all those who want to learn more about todays world.

Asias Turning Point is a landmark for scholars, researchers, and businessmen. It explains why the fastest growing area of the world is Asia and why it will continue to be in the future. A large marketfrom Mumbai to Sydneyis taking shape with a strong determination to grow and modernize. Tselichtchev and Debroux have put together an incredibly interesting book that brilliantly captures the essence of very complex diversified socio-economic realities.

Asias Turning Point is a very timely volume. A unique cluster of highly performing Asian economies has retained growth dynamics in spite of recent global financial turmoil. Its future prospects crucially depend on how we understand the three major aspects of the systemic transformation of major Asian countries: (1) the economic role and policies of the state, (2) ownership, governance, and management of companies, and (3) Asian style of labor relations.
A great deal of literature covers many aspects of Asian capitalism but what sets this book apart is that it deals not only with the NIEs and ASEAN 4 but also with the Four Heroes (in authors terms) of Vietnam, North Korea, Russian Far East, and India. This wide selection will provide a precious gift for researchers who are struggling to find a new worldwide perspective including genuine emerging economies.

Ivan Tselichtchev and Philippe Debroux provide a highly readable, up-to-date account of the economic development and outlook for East and Southeast Asia. Asias Turning Point is both broad and deep. It gives a comprehensive treatment on a region-wide basis to relevant issues such as the transformation of the Asian development model, Asian business corporations, and Asian business-labor relationships. The studies of individual key economies add depth. The volume will be valuable in classrooms and for policymakers. A tour de force, it fills a needed gap and comes at a time of history when it is even more critical to understand Asias growth trajectory.

The authors also show how the free market logic progressively penetrates the business world and management habits, generally for the better, but not without its trail of environmental and social challenges.
With almost fifteen countries covered, the book gives a wide panorama of the East-Asian economies. Not only does it provide a general picture, it also gives precise figures and references. This makes it a valuable guide for business people interested in entering the East-Asian market.
