    Chinese Capitalism in a Global Era examines the dynamic ways in which millions of ethinic Chinese in East and Southeast Asian economies organize their economic activities. It analyses how Chinese capitalism has changed under conditions of contemporary globalization and anticipates what the future holds for it. The book challenges the conventional notion of Chinese cpitalism as 'crony capitalism', based around kinship networks and untouched by globalization.
