Summary The economies of East and Southeast Asia continue to exhibit the world's fastest growth rates. This rapid expansion is served by the various business networks that dominate the economic landscape. Few scholars have examined these networks and fewer yet have compared and contrasted the striking regional differences found among them. The studies in this volume are among the first to offer a comparative viewpoint. The contributing authors are specialists from Asia and the United States, who examine business networks in Japan, South Korea and the Chinese dominated economies of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. An interdisciplinary approach is adopted, the economic issues are considered in their sociological, organizational and political contexts
