Online travel is big business and has become one of the most popular items purchased by consumers on the internet. In 2005, US$106 billion was spent on online travel products and services with air travel alone accounting for over US$65 billion or sixty per cent. This represents almost a quarter of the total worldwide business-to-consumer (B2C) online spending. A variety of contributing factors are responsible for this development: • the emergence of the internet and specifically the worldwide web and their commercial applications in the mid 1990s • a change in the behavior of consumers who through inexpensive internet access and growing familiarity with easy-to-use technology today shop 24/7 from anywhere in the world • airline companies use the internet not only as a new platform to service, sell and market but – by cutting traditional supply channels and reaching directly to the end consumer – also to realize cost savings in their distribution systems

With new chapters on seaports and electronic data interchange, it explains in a lucid, and professional manner the basic elements of shipping, embracing operating, e-commerce/ computerization (shipboard/trade), commercial, legal, economic, technical, managerial, logistics and financial considerations. It also reflects recent major trends including the impact of globalization, current good practice and future trends. All twenty-two chapters have been updated and over half of the content is new. Filling a gap for the discerning reader who wishes to have a complete understanding of all the elements of the global shipping scene together with the interface with seaports, international trade and logistics, it remains essential reading for shipping executives along with students and academics with an interest in the shipping industry.

Competition law, at both the EC and UK levels, plays an important and ever-increasing role in regulating the conduct of businesses. Based on the premise that open and fair competition is good for both consumers and businesses, competition law prevents businesses from entering into anticompetitive agreements and from abusing their dominant market position.

Moens, Murdoch University, Perth, Australia The International Trade and Business Law Review publishes leading articles, comments and case notes, as well as book reviews dealing with international trade and business law, arbitration law, foreign law and comparative law. It provides the legal and business communities with information, knowledge and understanding of recent developments in international trade, business and international commercial arbitration.

Competition Law and Policy in the EC and UK looks at how competition law affects business, including: coordinated actions; pricing behaviour; take-overs and mergers; and state subsidies. It provides a clear guide to and outline of the general policies behind, and the main provisions of EC and UK competition law. Information is presented within a structured framework, complete with a glossary of useful terminology. This fourth edition has been revised and updated to take into account developments since publication of the previous edition, including expanded coverage of IP issues and extended discussion of UK competition law. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction to Competition Policy and Practice 2. Enforcement of Community and UK Competition Law 3. The Control of Dominance 4. Control of Anti-Competitive Agreements 5.

The Changing Face of Management in China Edited by Chris Rowley and Fang Lee Cooke, University of Manchester, UK The main aim of this book is to examine a range of areas of Chinese management in the context of the local political, economic and social traditions and the global economy. According to some commentators, some elements of management are universal while other aspects are unique to a given context. Moreover, much of what we know about Chinese management today is drawn from studies conducted with quantitative methods and at macro level. Less is known of managers in China in managing specific issues at work. This book adds to the existing body of knowledge by analyzing current key strategic, as well as functional areas and issues facing Chinese managers trying to compete more effectively in the global market. In addition, the ‘voice’ of local managers is heard. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction 2. HRM 3. Marketing 4. Managing Supply Chains 5. Finance 6. Changes and Restructuring 7. Public Sector 8.

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS The Changing Face of Management in South East Asia Edited by Chris Rowley, Cass Business School, London University, UK and Saaidah Abdul-Rahman, Independant Researcher South East Asia has undergone important economic, social and political developments in the last decade. The emergence of China as Asia’s largest pool of cheap labour has resulted in remarkable changes in the volume of foreign direct investment it commands, while the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis has undoubtedly influenced managerial practices in the majority of the countries in the region. In response, South East Asian governments and businesses have sought ways of attracting new investors while intensifying their efforts to retain existing industries. This important volume overviews the development of South East Asian management practices, focusing on human resource management (HRM) as an indicator and measure of change. Written by prominent scholars of the region, the book focuses on reform in the human resource (HR) managerial domain, documenting recent changes and assessing current practices from both macro and micro perspectives. A consistent structure and content is used throughout, with each chapter incorporating ‘real-life’ local organizational and manager case studies, plus vignettes to give ‘voice’ to practitioners and developments. This is essential reading for anybody with an interest in management, HR or the political, social, cultural and economic profiles of the countries of South East Asia.

Chinese Business

The influence of Asian cultures and religious traditions has often been used to explain Asian women’s under-utilization and underrepresentation in management. This book examines the influence of culture and tradition on organizational and management practices, and how these affect the progress of women in management in Asian economies. This book, written by prominent scholars of the Asian region, explores which organizational and management practices are universal, and which other aspects (such as human resource practices) are culture specific, and how these in turn affect the advancement / representation of women in the Asian region. Higher educational levels, falling fertility rates and sectoral changes have contributed to women’s increasing participation in the labour force. As women become more educated and qualified for managerial positions, the number of Asian women managers and executives is predicted to rise over the next decade. The Asian economies covered by this up-to-date collection have undergone rapid economic transformation. Until now, most research on contemporary women managers has been drawn from studies conducted in developed countries. Covering case studies in China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, this book uses different perspectives to examine the constraints, opportunities and challenges for women managers in the Asian context and presents an update on their progress in management. Selected Contents: 1. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Asia: Issues and Challenges 2. The Changing Face of Women Managers in China 3. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Hong Kong 4. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Japan 5. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Malaysia 6. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Singapore 7. The Changing Face of Women Managers in South Korea 8. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Taiwan 9. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Thailand 10. The Changing Face of Women Managers in Vietnam 11. Conclusion

Hong Liu, University of Manchester, UK China has been the fastest growing economy in the world over the past twenty years, and its influence in the global economic and political arena is becoming increasingly stronger; it is expected that China will soon become the second largest trading nation in the world. Other books cover only part of this growing picture, and the analysis and understanding of Chinese enterprises and competitors has been lacking until now. This key book provides a comprehensive, practical guide to business in China, featuring both theoretical/academic and practical perspectives. With a strong focus on the ways in which language, traditional thought and stratagem culture influence how Chinese do business, this book offers a complete view of industry structures and the competitive landscape, thus providing a framework for Western companies to develop successful business and marketing strategies. Broad-ranging and informative, Chinese Business: Landscapes and Strategies can be used as a textbook for undergraduates and postgraduates at business schools, as well as a reference book for those on senior executive programmes and for consultation on particular aspects of business in China.

It examines its place in the world economy, its historical development and its resource endowment. The analysis of its growth to date is balanced by an account of its prospects for future development. The relationship between the different sectors of the economy is discussed, as well as the role of multinational enterprises, the government and the financial markets. The interaction of political and social forces and economic growth is given special consideration, and special features of individual countries are highlighted.

Banking Reform in Southeast Asia The Region’s Decisive Decade Malcolm Cook, Lowy Institute for International Policy, Sydney, Australia Providing a detailed account of the history of banking reform in Southeast Asia, this book analyzes the major developments in the global economic system over the past three decades, including the globalization of finance, the debt crisis of the 1980s and the 1997–1998 Asian financial crisis.

Private Equity in Asia Julian Roche, Corporate Finance Trainer/Consultant and UN Expert on Commodities UNCTAD Risk Management Division, Singapore Asian venture capital, launched with so much fanfare in the 1990s, has profoundly lost its way: billions of dollars has been lost in a range of schemes, many supported by governments. A huge number of would-be entrepreneurs have been encouraged to apply for funds, new institutions have been created and serious attention has been given to the Asian market by US and European funds – and yet the number of successful VC firms remains low and MBOs virtually non-existent (except in Japan). Private equity was a transplant into Asia: but has the transplant taken and what is the prognosis for the patient? This revealing book is a comprehensive review of the motivation behind, the course of, and the successes and failures of, private equity/venture capital in Asia. It evaluates investments by country and sector, examining the firms, the investments they have made, how they have performed, how they are viewed by government, what regulation is like and what the sector has contributed to the regional economy. A comparison with the USA and Europe as well as other developing economies puts Asian venture capital into a global perspective. The first volume to give a comprehensive overview of private equity in the region, Julian Roche’s book takes an evaluative approach to the sector’s successes and failures, and as such makes for a valuable resource for postgraduates and professionals in the areas of Asian business, venture capital and international business.

Edited by Malcolm Warner, University of Cambridge, UK and Keith Goodall, University of Cambridge, UK

Edited by Vivienne Shue, St Anthony’s College, University of Oxford, UK and Christine Wong, University of Washington, USA

One of the critical issues facing both the Chinese government and businesses operating in China is the lack of trained managers. The pace of Chinese economic growth has outstripped the ability of the labour market to supply much needed managerial talent. This book examines the Chinese response to these challenges.

China’s stunning record of economic development since the 1970s has been marred by an increasingly obvious gap between the country’s ‘haves’ and its ‘have-nots’. This collection traces the causes of this growing inequality, using new data including surveys, interviews, newly available official statistics and in-depth fieldwork.

Alan Berkeley Thomas, formerly of Manchester Business School, UK By its very nature, management is a multidisciplinary enterprise. Despite this, management research has tended to be organized around a number of discrete management disciplines with their own methodological outlooks. As a result, researchers in different fields often find it difficult to appreciate work outside their own area of specialization, so inhibiting much-needed collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. Management has emerged as a major area of research that has attracted students in growing numbers. However, there are still relatively few texts that are tailored specifically to the needs and interests of management researchers. Together with its companion volume, Research Skills for Management Studies (Routledge, 2003), this book offers management students a challenging but accessible introduction to research methods and concepts, irrespective of their field of specialization. Selected Contents: 1. What Does it all Mean? 2. Science in Management Studies 3. Theory in Management Studies 4. Data in Management Studies 5. Validity in Management Studies 6. Significance in Management Studies 2006: 216x138: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-34191-2: £70.00 Pb: 978-0-415-34192-9: £16.99 eBook: 978-0-203-48128-8 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY US $140.00
