This volume, first published in 1995, looks at the development of Chinese business and management practices across Asia from the late nineteenth century. Experts examine how familism and informal networks have contributed to Chinese entrepreneurial success. They demonstrate how effective these factors have been in overcoming restrictive state policies: through alliances with ethnic and international traders and connections between financial networks in Hong Kong, South East Asia, China and Australia. An institutional model of analysis is developed to determine the efficacy of Chinese business practices and structures. The relationship between culture and environment is examined as well as how modern institutions are embedded not only in culture but also in history and economics.
