This book explains the subtle maneuvers of what researchers call “facework” and demonstrates the vital role it plays in the success or failure of cross-cultural interactions. Building on Geert Hofstede’s seminal research on cultural dimensions, Merkin synthesizes more recent research in business, communication, cross-cultural psychology and sociology to offer a model for better understanding facework. Additionally, Merkin’s model shows how particular communication strategies can facilitate more successful cross-cultural interactions. The first book of its kind to focus on the practical aspects of employing face-saving, it is a needed text for academics, students, and business professionals negotiating with organizations from different cultures.

This unique book discusses how to manage an organization in China. It is based on the invaluable practical experience of entrepreneur Johan Bjrkstn, who successfully built a local consulting business with over 100 employees, and Anders Hgglund, a seasoned manager who set up high-growth and highly profitable operations in China for a major industrial multinational. The book provides widely applicable advice based on experiences from different industries, including but not limited to those of the authors. Most books about business in China belong to one of two categories: autobiographical "success stories" or academic treatises. Managing in China goes beyond these genres to provide highly relevant, practical advice and checklists, as well as concrete and illustrative examples from the authors' own experience. Managing in China succinctly explains how historical, cultural and social factors influence today's Chinese business environment, and how managers should take this into account in day-to-day operations. The book focuses on managing in a rapid-growth environment, but also provides advice on how to ensure sustainable operations and profitability in mature industries or a temporary downturn.

It's been 15 years since Abby Thompson was incarcerated for the unusual murder of her abusive husband, Rob. Since then, she's dedicated her life to building a business and raising her daughter, Sarah. But unlike most convicts, Abby belongs to one of the wealthiest families in Columbus. Besides occasional nightmares about her past, the only thing plaguing Abby is the fact that she's never been totally honest with Sarah, now a teenager, about her father's death. While she frets over how to finally tell Sarah the gruesome truth, Abby is also falling in love for the first time since Rob. To complicate matters further, the skeletons in the closet of Abby's past have grown restless, and burst forth in her life again. She is unexpectedly reunited with the sultry journalist who used Abby's tragedy to advance her career, and with her former mother-in-law, a woman who once wished Abby nothing but death and misery. Trouble brews for Abby after each of these encounters, but things grow worse with the murder of one of Abby's employees, as she becomes the primary suspect, and eventually discovers who the real killer is.
