He is a senior counselor for APCO Worldwide, and is member of the Council on Foreign Relations; National Committee on US-China Relations; International Council of the Asia Society; and serves on a variety of China-related advisory boards.

Summary: Mapviii Cast of Charactersx Prefacexviii Introduction -A Startup and a Turnaround- With one foot firmly in the past, and the other stepping into the future, China is simultaneously the world's largest startup and turnaround. - 1 1 -The Grand Bargain- Two hundred years of foreign domination and duplicity have left a residue of suspicion and distrust. Understanding that history is essential to doing business with the Chinese. - 21 2 -Same Bed, Different Dreams- Avoid joint ventures with Chinese government partners. The clash of civilizations in Morgan Stanley's joint-venture investment bank shows why and offers hard-learned lessons on how to cope. - 58 3 -Eating the Emperor's Grain- China's relationship-driven system is often incompatible with honesty. This peasant tycoon's journey into the dark heart of China's endemic corruption shows how it works and outlines your options. - 94 4 -Dancing with the Dinosaurs- Powerful bureaucratic opponents can be beat if you have China's interests at heart. Dow Jones and Reuters demonstrate how using China's own tactics can be useful. - 126 5 -Caught in the Crossfire- Government lobbying must be a key part of your China business plan, especially for technology companies that might be squeezed between hot competition and the Cold War. - 155 6 -The Truth Is Not Absolute- The Communist Party believes it must control information to stay in power, but China needs an informed citizenry to compete in a global economy. This leaves the media, from Rupert Murdoch to a crusading Chinese journalist, searching for the size of their cages. - 190 7 -The Best-Laid Plans- Government planning and manipulation of foreign companies fueled China's construction of the world's largest telecom system. But this saga shows how entrepreneurship and the market can beat the planners. - 225 8 -Managing the Future- China is a nation always cramming for final exams, but it will take innovation, not prescribed solutions, to pass the global business test. - 258 Afterword- 295 Acknowledgments- 303 Index- 311.
