Chinese General Management: Tsinghua-Harvard Text and Cases
McFarlan, F. Warren, and Guoqing Chen
This is a text and case book for the Chinese business higher education market. It is a combination of seven chapters (six original ones) covering China's financial markets, governance in the global information economy, control, operations and supply-chain management, marketing management, and governance. These chapters are combined with seventeen field cases written in China by members of the HBS/Tsinghua faculty, which illustrate the complexity of problems facing Chinese general managers. This book is a direct outgrowth of the combined work done by HBS and Tsinghua's School of Economics and Management over the past three years in developing its "Senior Executive Program for China."

Southeast Asia and the Political Economy of Development
Book Chapter in Southeast Asia in Political Science: Theory, Region, and Qualitative Analysis edited by Erik Martinez Kuhonta, Dan Slater and Tuong Vu
Abrami, Regina M. and Richard Doner
This chapter assesses the contribution of contemporary qualitative research on Southeast Asia to the field of political economy. Specifically, we examine Southeast Asia research on the origins of economic institutions and their influence on economic performance. We show how similar institutions vary in their impact and are influenced by local contexts. After providing a critical review of Southeast Asia-related research on the political economy of development, the chapter identifies how social and political institutions shaped the region's market-based economies, the origins of these institutional arrangements, and the origins and impact of institutions from the less-studied post-socialist economies, especially Vietnam.

China and India, occupied by a third of the world's population, are undergoing social and economic revolutions that are capturing the best minds and money of Western business. This book presents a new view of development, centered around entrepreneurial behavior by both public and private sectors. The author charts China's and India's trajectories of development-where they overlap and complement each other, and where they diverge and compete with one another. There are opportunities for Western companies to participate in this development. This book should serve as an excellent beginning of that participation. Through a series of intriguing comparisons, Khanna probes the salient, practical differences between China and India in such areas as information and transparency, the roles of
capital and talent, public and private property rights, social constraints on market forces, attitudes toward expatriates abroad and foreigners at home, entrepreneurial and corporate opportunities, and the importance of urban and rural communities. The differences suggest how these two countries will develop further, how their paths will cross and diverge, what they can learn from and contribute to each other, and, ultimately, how they will reshape the world around them in terms of business, politics, and society at large.

Making Foreign Investment Safe: Property Rights and National Sovereignty
Wells, Louis T.
New York: Oxford University Press, 2007
Vietor, Richard H.K.
As the world globalizes, countries compete for the markets, technologies, and skills needed to raise their standards of living. These strategies can make--or break--the government's efforts to drive and sustain growth. In "How Countries Compete," Richard Vietor sheds light on ways in which governments can best set direction and provide a healthy climate for a nation's economic development and profitable private enterprise. Drawing on history, economic analysis, and interviews with executives and officials around the globe, Vietor provides concentrated examinations of different approaches to government facilitation of development. Individual chapters focus on the unique social, economic, cultural, and historical forces that shape governments' approach to economic growth. Countries discussed include: China, India, Japan, Singapore, the United States, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa. Vietor challenges the widespread notion that, in market-driven economies such as the United States, a strong government can only hinder business success. A provocative resource, "How Countries Compete" offers potent insights into how the business environment has evolved in crucial nations--and what its trajectory might look like in the future.
