The book focuses on one ethnic community - the Chinese - and examines the variety of issues surrounding enterprise development from national and transnational perspectives, starting with the role played by Chinese entrepreneurs in the 1997 Asian financial crisis. Using empirical evidence and theoretical debate the contributors argue that Chinese enterprise is accelerated by intra-ethnic competition, rather than intra-ethnic co-operation, and that businessmen work in their own interest, not that of the Chinese community, as other literature dealing with the subject suggests.
