Book review

Asian business systems, national cultures, and the problem of gender

1 May 2015
Description

Some influential management researchers have worked to understand how firms relate to their surrounding societies. They argue that, despite the obvious pressures of globalisation on both governments and firms, national 'business systems' show little tendency to converge to a standard pattern. Yet gender relations are absent from their accounts of 'society' and 'culture'; indeed women and gender are missing from most authoritative texts in management.
What has gone wrong, asks Ben (Frank) Tipton, as he examines four texts: the Oxford Handbook of Asian Business Systems, How Asian Women Lead: Lessons for Global Corporations, Women Entrepreneurs in the Global Marketplace and Culture and Gender in Leadership: Perspectives from the Middle East and Asia in his article in the Australian Review of Public Affairs.
