Armed with hundreds of millions of dollars and a strong sense that he and his partners were-like missionaries of capitalism-descending into the industrial past to bring the Chinese into the modern world, one Western businessman got the education of a lifetime. "In the 1980s, Clissold, a graduate of England's Cambridge University, left his job in a major accounting firm to go to Beijing and learn Mandarin. He was thus on the front line when foreign investors came to China looking for business partners and on the firing line when there was a clash of expectations and unforeseen results. Chinese businessmen and officials did not defer to the foreigners but instead showed them why China led the world in technology, industry, and business-that is, before the last few unfortunate centuries." -Library Journal--Library JournalBinding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Tim ClissoldPublisher: HarperBusinessPublished: 02/28/2006ISBN: 9780060761400Pages: 262Weight: 0.75lbsSize: 8.00h x 5.30w x 1.00d
