"In the Belly of the Dragon relates a story seldom told by Western media. It is a must-read for anyone considering doing business in China, and would interest business students and Sinophiles as well because of the author’s behind-the-scenes experiences."

Synopsis

The Peoples' Republic of China have hired several hundred socalled foreign experts and assigned them to specifi c state owned enterprises (SOE's) to help transform these into modern world class companies. As far as I know, I was the fi rst and only foreigner heading up the human resources in such an enterprise. The purpose of this short book is to provide a snapshot of what really happens inside: how the party functions in the company: how people issues are addressed including industrial and social unrest: the problems around petty irregularities and resistance to change: the daily challenges facing non-China nationals and fi nally, how companies are bought and integrated outside The Peoples' Republic.
