In colonial times, the business leaders in Asia were known as taipans, or "big lords." They were almost all of Western origin, and were both feared and revered. Today's taipans are even more powerful. They are with few exceptions Chinese, and about 15 of them constitute one of the most powerful groups in the world. The New Taipans takes the reader into a closed and privileged world and provides vital information on its fundamental business values, family and filial piety, work ethic and importance of guanxi, the Chinese business network. There are special sections on the taipans of Greater China, Greater Korea, East Asia (Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand), Singapore and Malaysia.
