(Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1989) 301 pp. Cloth $ 54.50. The book under review is a study of the growth, development and decline of British business enterprise in Asia. Following a brief introductory chapter by the editors, a group of area specialists develop a series of short case histories of British business in Russian Asia, Iran, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, China and Japan. The book is designed to appeal to business historians, third world specialists, economists, political scientists and western businessmen interested in Asia. The research is based on business archives and government papers of the period and writ- ten from the point of view of expatriate business. The editors set down four basic themes to be addressed by their contributors. These themes include the structure and organization of British business, its links to government diplomacy, and the performance and impact of British business in Asia. As in most edited volumes, however, these themes tend to be applied unevenly. The problem of comparison is further compounded by the size and diversity of the region, the brevity of the essays and the lengthy http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Asian and African Studies (in 2002 continued as African and Asian Studies) Brill
