This series has commissioned monographs and edited books that contain original contributions and research on Asia Pacific enterprise. Business organization and national industrial systems derive and interact with their historical, economic, political and sociological contexts. The contributors, therefore, employ comparative methods of analysis - between companies, industries and countries, and across time. This eclectic and multi-disciplinary series of studies draws on the skills of acknowledged experts. Whilst tackling ’big themes’, it seeks to meet the practical needs of lecturers and students.
