Product description

From the Inside Flap

Asia’s Turning Point is a comprehensive, one-stop introduction to the economies of Asia. Its coverage extends from Japan, China, and the “Four Tigers” to ASEAN 4, as well as Vietnam, North Korea, India, and the Far Eastern provinces of Russia. The author’s offer detailed information about each country’s economic and trade status along with a description of its business environment, including legal and cultural issues.

Asia’s 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.

Asia’s Turning Point is focused on Asia’s 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 Asia’s turning point: the rise of a peculiar Asian model of capitalism inspired by the rise of Japan appears to be no longer feasible. Asia’s 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.

Asia’s Turning Point combines innovative concepts with lively descriptions of Asia’s 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 today’s world.

From the Back Cover

Asia’s Turning Point provides a wealth of invaluable insights for anyone wishing to understand where Asia’s growth miracle has come from, and where it is going in the future. It deftly highlights both the opportunities and the pitfalls on the road ahead. The authors systematically examine all of the critical forces that are shaping the Asian business and economic environment including the economic and political role of the apparatus of the state, ownership and governance, the management of local Asian companies, and Asian-style labor relations. This book is a treasure trove of information for business people, policymakers, researchers or students alike.

Asia’s 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 market—from Mumbai to Sydney—is 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.

Asia’s 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. Asia’s 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 Asia’s growth trajectory.
