Back cover copy

Focusing upon the transfer of technology from Western countries to Asian countries, the book demonstrates the parallels that occur (both at a micro organizational level, and a broader macro economic level) between the actions commonly thought to constitute the realm of international business; and the people, products, and processes comprising technology transfer.
